The people have no care for your reason and your complicated truths They want certainty simple easy certainty and I give it to them That is why I shall triumph in the end and that is why you and your chattering philosopher friends will failThis uote encapsulates perfectly what this book is about and also feels uncomfortably relevant right nowDrusus is a boy growing up in a changing world Christianity is on the rise and at least where he lives they re basically not better people than the ones who used to persecute them They destroy the old temples and attack people and the power they get the crueler they becomeDrusus might not be super deep into the Gods he does believe in them but he is not Christian either so coming to live in the house of his uncle and aunt who are after his father was executed by the new Emperor Constans his only family is hard for him His uncle is okay but he has no friends his aunt hates him and his cousin only thinks of himself He has decided to become a soldier but they don t even take him seriously The reader basically follows his life from the age of 14 to around 20 It has his ups finding friends getting his dream job finding respect falling in love and downs losing friends due to his own fears jealousy his aunt being cruel someone trying to frame him for treason but our main character is basically never boredEverything about this sounds exciting right And technically it was The character concepts and the plot were pretty solid BUT what seriously bugged me was the written It was pretty flat and un engaging It makes me really sad because the story is right up my alley otherwise There were some interesting scenes and opinions here and there but they were written as if the author was a bored highschool student writing a paper about a topic that doesn t interest him Or like a business reportThere was so much tragedy and drama in this book and I felt nothing Drusus battling with his feelings for Marcellus for a long time should have made me shed at least a little tear for example but it was writting in such a clinical way and cut away in the most emotional for this book moments that it was almost baffling I actually checked if this book was written in the early 90s because I have often seen books from that period dancing around homosexual relationships exactly like this But it came out in 2009 Super weirdWhat really did work was making me hate all those self righteous religious people but then they re always easy to hateSome characters also stood out by somehow being alive than the others like Marcellus grandfather or the soldier who taught Drusus how to fight A few scenes with Drusus and Marcellus also almost worked in the depth departmentANYWAY despite all this this book was not bad and I m perfectly willing to read other books by this author Maybe even soonWarning There is a scene with a child prostitute in this It s not shown in a positive light at all but some people might be sensitive to it

I had read the seuel the philosopher prince before I read this one so it was interesting to see how the characters developed It s a great novel expertly written and you just feel like basking in itThe story starts with a young Drusus whose father told him he s going away He never saw his father again as he was executed for a false crime In this book we see a lot of men s true nature we see the good people resisting and seeking the good and those that want to destroy thing and those that are merely afraidWith the church taking over and a change in an emperor or two there is chaos In this chaos Drusus grows and so does his relationship with Marcellus It s not explicit he thinks about his feels a lot but whatever happens is done slowly and naturally and there is such a companionship between these twoAuinus is a great character He s Marcellus grandfather and he does amazing thing though he is let down a bit I can see how he influences both Drusus and MarcellusThere were other great characters that added to the growth of the character of Drusus I liked Heliodora best though she was a woman that sought wisdom and was not afraid to die for it Marcellus mother although we only meet her briefly is another strong character that is then developed in the second bookAll in all a great story of growth chaos and the dark side in men stand up to it and not meeting violence with violence sometimes
