A highly intelligent, charming, yet sensitive person called Roman has written the following review of Sword of Marathon, on Amazon.com:
This book was a lot of fun. It’s a tour through ancient history. What little I remember from school treated every ancient culture as separate from all the others.
Sword of Marathon has them all mixing and interacting and commenting on one another.
It’s a little violent for my delicate demeanour.
One suspects Roman was thinking of a certain scene between Hal and the Phoenician captain, when he wrote his review, but thank you Roman for making the effort to write a review.
