The Burning Bridge

The second book in the series follows hot on the heels of the first book, time-wise. While I still find the dialogue & humor a bit forced, and the movement of the plot to be less-than-smooth, the characters are engaging enough to make me want to read the next book. I am enjoying the relationship of Horace & Will progress from competitors who do not get along to trusted allies and best friends.

Students familiar with Roman history will delight to recognize the historical Horatius Cocles, who, along with two of his officers, defended a bridge against the Etruscans by destroying it behind himself. Horace, Will and Evanlyn, anyone?
