Children of Apollo (Eagles and Dragons Book 1) Book Review
Amazon describes the book:
At the peak of Rome’s might a dragon is born among eagles, an heir to a line both blessed and cursed by the Gods for ages.
Children of Apollo is the tale of Lucius Metellus Anguis, a young warrior who is inspired by the deeds of his glorious ancestors and burdened by the knowledge that he must raise his family name from the ashes of the past. Having achieved a measure of success in the Emperor’s Legions in North Africa, Lucius is recalled to Rome where he finds himself surrounded by enemies, cast into the deadly arena of Roman politics. Amid growing fears of treachery, Lucius meets a young Athenian woman who fills his darkening world with new-found hope. Their love grows, as does their belief that the Gods have planned their meeting but when an ancient oracle of Apollo utters a terrifying prophecy regarding his future, Lucius’ world is once more thrown into chaos. Ultimately, he must choose sides in a war that threatens to destroy his family, his faith and all that he has worked for.
Children of Apollo is Book 1 in Adam Alexander Haviaras’ ground-breaking Eagles and Dragons historical fantasy series. If you like books by Douglas Jackson, Manda Scott, and David Gemmell, or movies like Gladiator and Pompeii, then you will love this historical series that combines adventure, romance, and the supernatural.
My Own Thoughts On This Book:
The title Eagles and Dragons Book 1 shows this is book one in the series but in fact the first book I have reviewed already and is entitled A Dragon among the Eagles: A Novel of the Roman Empire (Eagles and Dragons Book 0) Book Review .
This is a continuation of the life of Lucius Metellus Anguis and I am beginning to warm to his character.
The story expands the roll of family in the Roman culture of these times and brings to life Roman history and culture which is full of intrigue as the plot moves swiftly along.
Lucius has to make some heavy decision in matters of the heart and of the Gods who weigh heavily on his mind. This was a better read than the first book and sets up quite nicely for the next volume
