When I first started reading SFF Barbara Hambly uickly became one of my favorite authors and her Windrose Chronicles in particular I reread every year So I was excited to find that she d also written a mystery set in Ancient Rome I love Rome Awesome But it didn t really work for meThe book has a great premise and setup Here in the time of Trajan Marcus Silanus a noble young philosopher in training is not so secretly in love with Tullia who is betrothed to a rich Syrian merchant They are meeting and bemoaning the fact that well they can t marry each other when tragedy strikes A gang of ruffians jumps them and abducts Tullia They leave a little silver fish behind Horrors It s the Christians Everyone knows they re a bunch of hideous baby killers They would definitely sacrifice her So Marcus has to search the city to find her before it is Too LateSounds like a good idea right Well it s a good idea but that s about all it is With Hambly s usual style the book goes for the sort of atmospheric setting description that is present in all her fantasy But so many of the details are just a little bit wrong And okay maybe it doesn t bother anyone else that vomitoriums are in there Maybe it doesn t bother anyone else that pretty much every Roman name including the main character and his love interest and the guy who is unfortunately named the Latin word for couch is done wrong It s not uite Rome and it kept throwing meBut I think I could have overlooked that okay maybe not the names if only I had come to care about the characters and what happened to them I didn t The Christians spent a lot of the time suabbling and accusing each other of heresies and mostly it came across as a lot like an unfunny Life of Brian that was trying too hard The Romans had the reuisite orgies and lions in the arena A lot of lions It was all just kind of meh Maybe it s that one of the things I like about Hambly s writing is the female characters and there were no women here I don t know It just wasn t especially good
