[quote=""Ashley""]I love Ancient Rome so I need my "fix" as Cat said above. Any other suggestions?[/quote]

We have a few authors here on the site who write about Roman times. Ben Kane's book The Road to Rome was just reviewed here. And I'll humbly propose my own book Selene of Alexandria set in 5C Alexandria, Egypt during the Roman era. It hasn't been reviewed here yet, but you can check out the reviews on Goodreads and LibraryThing to see if it's your type of story (there are a couple of duplicates where folks posted their reviews in both places.) Enjoy!

Outstanding, thank you. I will definitely check out the links you gave, and I have read the first of Ben's novels. Looking forward to getting the next two.

Currently reading Saylor's "Roma". He is definitely challing Michener in this novel, thankfully however, he is not sucking at it.
