Still recovering from his previous assignment in Arabia imperial agent Cassius Corbulo has been spending mostf his time and money Buried Secrets on women and wine Unfortunately for him wordf his achievements has reached the emperor Aurelian's deputy and he is sent north Wing my reviews Operación Primicia: el ataque de Montoneros que provocó el golpe de 1976 of Nick Brown s Agentf Rome series including short fiction pieces you know that I am a big fan Why Pandas Do Handstands of his writing And it is with a reason he writing is catchy fast paced and his visionf the Roman Empire is just as it had to be beautiful yet brutal at the same time From the first book The Siege Nick Brown has never missed a beat in his writing I kindly urge you to pick up this series asap if you haven t done so The Emperor s Silver picks up after the events f The Black Stone and just as if Cassius thought he could catch a break from running around and solving problems which kind f comes with the job The List: el día en que mi vida cambió of the frumentarii he is calledn another mission But first I have to note that before this mission arrives you see a picture L'enigma del solitario of Cassius where his far from a happy man he has witnessed a lotf hurt and pain If you think about it anyone with emotions would be taken by this and so is Cassius He takes relief in Submission With a Stranger other means and knows it isn t really the right way to go After this introduction Cassius is presented with a serious case where he has to track counterfeit money The case being Emperor Aurelian has issued new coinage in the Roman Empire since the Roman Empire is big many criminals try to work this in their favor andne particular criminal gang is doing such a good job that they have been noted However this new mission isn t the nly motivation Cassius is being persued and they have already gotten very close to him personally a desperate break is needed And so Cassius is send to put them to a halt in the city f Berytus Of course he is always accompanied by two f his friends servant and bodyguard Simo and Indavara whom we already have gotten to learn in the ther books Anyway what might sounds like a fairly easy mission soon turns The Rat and the Tiger out into a giant undertaking as Cassius is presented with thanne challenge in trying to find the criminals and navigating his way through the local populace and convincing them to help him What we also see is that Cassius is young and perhaps naive and is being led astray by Pirate Princess other motivations But it in end Cassius is being presented with a smack in the face wake up call as soon as he findsut that he wasn t able to shed his persuers and that his life now hangs in the balance Again a challenging task for Cassius both for his job and that Otogi Zoshi: Volume 1 of his lifeI actually wanted to uote the last two sentencesf the book but that would be too much Arcadia of a spoiler anyway I won t do it now But as with manyf the The Essential Elizabeth Montgomery: A Guide to Her Magical Performances other review this ending WOW Nick how dare you totally unfair I hope you promise to publish the next book in a few months and not let us sit around and wait until next year June When it comes down to character development evolution so to say is remarkable As I said before Cassius shows emotions he has gone through a lot and gradually you see that everything is catching up with him It is impossible to witness what he has and stay cool about it you have to find a way to let steamff Il bicchiere scrivente or something in that sense I really liked how Nick Brown is showing his protagonist He is parts the secret frumentarii group Roman s Secret Service
#like spy #spy but your James Bond type He is flawed his personality is but this a good thing because we all aren t perfect and this is what makes him a wonderful protagonist because it allows you to connect with him much much better than if he would be invincible and solve everything and win from every criminal Cassius is learning And trying to be better Similar things count for Indavara and Simo the former might not be the smartest Damaged of all but I don t think you will be able to find a bodyguard as loyal as he if it hadn t been for Indavara Cassius would have been long gone by now If you add all three characters together you get something much intricate the relation between Cassius Indavara and Simo is a triangle they need eachther to stay alive and get further and in this you see a lot f dynamics Each personality is different but despite some extremes they work not always fluently though
but in a way that delivers a great dynamic which makes you laughin a way that delivers a great dynamic which makes you laugh times and makes you feel a lot f sorrow at the same time Next to the characters the world building is just as amazing To be honest there aren t any lush descriptions Disney Manga: Descendants - The Rotten to the Core Trilogy Book 2 of the exotic surroundings Nick Brown stays to the point and tells what is necessary and mainly by sticking to the to the point writing he creates a very nice pace in his story And you won t miss a beatf anything because if you read all the L'ispettore Alì al Trinity College other books you know the surroundings and you have all seen Roman movies so your imagination should be triggered here and there If you compare the setting to the first four booksne thing is noticeable and that is that The Emperor s Silver is written with a much darker tone Cassius past is catching up with him and it isn t pretty he has to face a lot Kejsarn av Portugallien of demonsf his Fol own The events that happen in the endingf the book I am going to say it again wow that cliffhanger Brilliant stuff I am curious to see just how this will impact Cassius action I think we will be in for a treat in the next installement I think I am going to repeat myself for the gazillionth time but the Agent The True Tale of Castaway Daniel Foss of Rome series is a winner With The Emperor s Silver Nick Brownnce again proves his worth and no wonder that Hodder and Stoughton keeps Myths and Legends of Russia on buying books in this series they are well worth it From the great story dynamics character building story line and writing all down to the accuracyf Roman history these books are just amazing Period Another ¿Quién yo? of the Agentf Rome books which was a thoroughly good read The mix SJWs Never Lie: Censorship is Tolerance!
