My Review:

Marcus, on a race against time, must find the spear before Thomas and avert the end of humanity. They used to be brothers but now they are enemies. Marcus travels through time to eradicate his sins but just when redemption is within his grasp, it slips away, like grains of sand through his fingers. Unable to stop Thomas, he’s on the run with a pair of companions. They travel across continents unraveling the truth, doing what they must under tenuous circumstances, all in the hopes of stopping Thomas’ gruesome plan. Will Marcus succeed or will he once again be defeated by Thomas?

The Last Roman: Abyss is a feast for the senses from start to finish. The descriptive narration is deep and precise which gives the reader an intense reading experience. BK Greenwood plunges the reader into the story through intricate world-building that is historically accurate yet also complete fantasy. The reader is able to suspend reality and be immersed in this fantastic world. The characters are so well-written, the reader forgets it’s fiction. The plot moves at a great pace with ebbs and flows in between the action, mystery, and time travel which allows the reader to catch its breath. The action scenes are an adrenaline rush. The ending, oh my goodness, took me completely by surprise. I can’t wait for book three. If you love historical fantasy, you’ll love The Last Roman: Abyss. If you’re a fan of time travel thrillers, pick up The Last Roman: Abyss. Dan Brown readers, this is your next book to read. Highly recommend!
