The Conqueror

 

It is AD 312. Rome teeters on the brink of war. Constantine's army is on the move. On the Rhine frontier, Brandulf Rex, a pagan Germanic barbarian, joins the Roman army as a spy and special forces operative. Down in Rome, Junia Flavia, the lovely and pious daughter of a nominally Christian senator, finds herself embroiled in anti-Christian politics as she works on behalf of the church.

As armies converge and forces beyond Rex's and Flavia's controls threaten to destroy everything they have worked for, these two people from different worlds will have to work together to bring down the evil Emperor Maxentius. But his villainous plans and devious henchmen are not easily overcome. Will the barbarian warrior and the senator's daughter live to see the Empire bow the knee to Christ? Or will their part in the story of Constantine's rise meet an untimely and brutal end?

Travel back to one of the most pivotal eras in history—a time when devotion to the pagan gods was fading and the Roman Empire was being conquered by the sign of the cross.

My Review

I liked the world that the author built for this book but I really struggled to connect with the characters. Which made this book both a fast and slow read. Fast because there is a lot of things happening. Even with the various storylines and jumping back and forth between them, I had no issues keeping the characters or stories straight as they did intertwine nicely with each other. However, slow because I found no real strong connection to the characters. It seems I am not the only one that felt this was about this book either. Sadly, I don't think I will be continuing on with the other books in this series.
