Book Reviews

‘The best moments in reading are when you come across something - a thought, a feeling, a way of looking at things - which you had thought special and particular to you. And now, here it is, set down by someone else, a person you have never met, someone even who is long dead. And it is as if a hand has come out, and taken yours.’ Alan Bennett

“Many a book is like a key to unknown chambers within the castle of one’s own self.” ― Franz Kafka

Roma Nova - the last remnant of the Roman Empire that has survived into the 21st century  - is at peace. Carina Mitela, the heir of a leading family, but choosing the life of an officer in the Praetorian Guard Special Forces, is not so sure.

She senses danger crawling towards her when she encounters a strangely self-possessed member of the unit hosting their exchange exercise in Britain. When a blackmailing letter arrives from a woman claiming to be her husband Conradís lost daughter and Conrad tries to shut Carina out, she knows the threat is real.

Trying to resolve a young manís indiscretion twenty-five years before turns into a nightmare that not only threatens to destroy all the Mitelae but also attacks the core of the imperial family itself. With her enemy holding a gun at the head of the heir to the imperial throne, Carina has to make the hardest decision of her life...

Praise for Successio


If there is a world where fiction becomes more believable than reality, then Alison Mortonís ingenious thrillers must be the portal through which to travel. Following in Caesarís footsteps, she came with INCEPTIO, saw with PERFIDITAS and has well and truly conquered with SUCCESSIO! Helen Hollick, author and Managing Editor Historical Novel Society Indie Reviews

Alison Morton has done it again. SUCCESSIO is the latest in her series of powerful tales of family betrayals and shifting allegiances in Roma Nova. Once again, I was gripped from start to finish. Sue Cook, writer and broadcaster

  2. Hmm, not sure about this one in that I don't generally fare well with alternative universes. That said, never say never. Though I might not buy a copy I might well pick this up if I were to see it in the library.

    kids for another woman just like that, i and my husband was married for six
    years living happily before i new what was going on, he left me and go for
    another woman so when i saw the post, i contacted the spell caster on his
    email and he told me i should not worry that my husband will come back to
    me in three days after once he finish casting the reunite spell and to my
    greatest surprise, i now have my husband back to me again and i want to use
