Review of 'The Centurion's Empire'

The Centurion's Empire by Sean McMullen

A wonderfully written book about a Roman centurion that passes through time. The first half of the book focuses on the past, telling the story of how a potion is developed that allows a person to be frozen (literally) then, under specific conditions, revived at any time in the future. The story follows the centurion as he stops at various key points in European history but – in the second half of the book – takes a dramatic turn to the cyberpunk as Vitellan arrives in the 21st century. Very easy to read despite the questionable ethics of the main character, this is definitely one to pick up.

Rating: “It is OK but I have some issues”
