(KINDLE Ð Legions of Hell) author C.J. Cherryh – latinboyz4play.com
This book is part of a multi author series And I think I may have to hunt the rest down at some point because it was just fun enough to keep me pouring over it much too late into the nightThe premise is that everyone who has died and ended up in Hell will find a place there and those who had influence over history have a stronger position in Hell Old enemies may become allies or old allies friends as political currents flow backwards and forwards The millennia in Hell change a personCurrently there are two factions in precarious balance neither willing to risk all out war for fear of aining the attention of the Administration These are the West led by the Romans particularly Julius Caesar s household and the East currently controlled by the Egyptians with the Assyrians maneuvering for ascendancy But watch out if you re taking a stroll through Decentral Park because the Cong have snipers thereIt s silly And nothing is laid out for you so you have to figure out for yourself what the Pentagram is and the Undertaker and every other thing which rushes by you as the plot moves on with a determined pace I found the challenge funSince this book focuses on the Romans half the dialogue is in Latin I found that fun as well because my Latin has Elizabeth Cady Stanton gotten incredibly rusty and it was nice to try to drag some of it back into my memory But don t panic if you don t know any Latin it s often explained in the next moment or it s fairly obvious based on what soing onThe plot of this book focuses on a young 17 year old Brutus showing up in Caesar s household This Brutus doesn t have any memories of his adult life or of dying He doesn t remember that he is a fratricide this book follows the theory that Brutus was a bastard child of Julius Now the Romans have to decide where he came from where he has been for the past three thousand years and whether they dare trust this naive childOne large caution however I don t think I ve ever read a book with so many typos It had my teeth on edge and if the story hadn t been so entertaining Essef What book could be fascinating than one about a Hell in which Julius Caesar Cleopatra Mark Antony Machiavelli Napoleon Ramses.

Sions Oh and it helps to read the appendix on Roman Names and Latin Phrases ProdiI think young me derived pleasure than confusion from not uite understanding everything It After the End gave the book this cache of being an Tome of Arcane Knowledge while simultaneously being a straight up action romp and Tragedy of Julius Caesar fanfic It definitely helped I think that I had read that firstAs an adult I cared about understanding everything and so I was tripped up freuently and had to re read and pause and check Wikipedia because I wanted to know if that was a real historical figure or not Also I was mildly irritated that Klea is soirly This woman ran a kingdom yo She should be tougher Though she does pull through in the end I wanted Hatshepsut I wanted female characters full stop I wanted non western characters I was outright pissed that the Viet Cong are a faceless enemy never on screen never individualized I wanted to see Vietnamese main characters all right Maybe they are in other books but I kind of doubt it There is a lot of Whitewashing Western Centric Patriarchal Lens The Doll and Her Friends (1893) going on It felt progressive in 1990 Rather the opposite today Um signs we re making progressSO all that caveated I still enjoyed this book like it was porn and would probably knock over an old lady toet at a copy of the direct seuel because I want MORE of Julius and Brutus as loving father and son ods damn it The strength of the book is in bringing these epic characters to life and letting them be epic Of course Niccolo Machievelli is the smartest smarty who ever smarted and Hatshepsut is the stone coldest betty Julius is strong and Augustus is loyal and Antonius ah sweet Antoni But if I can flirt with spoilers here the book s main pull and draw what kept me breathlessly wanting to race through each scene was the promise of a particular scene that NEVER HAPPENS GAAAAAAAAAAAHSomeone find me book 7 Hell Book 6 Entertaining not too serious book based on the idea that all those historical figures who ended up in hell must be doing something down ther. Ehow lacking a few vital memories of his life mainly a bloody March 15th Politics and war history and essef this book has all of it.
