The continuing saga of the King of Ys, August 6, 2004
Reviewer: Andrew W. Johns "ResQgeek" (Alexandria, VA USA)
This is the second volume of the "King of Ys" saga and picks up where "Roma Mater" ended. This book provides much more character development for the central characters and describes, in detail, the condition of the northern reaches of the Roman Empire in this period of decline. While this book has less action than the first book, it is clearly setting the stage for a coming conflict. The authors have combined extensive historical research with legend and a nice dose of fantasy to provide a story rich with detail.
