Vestal Virgin æ Vestal Virgin suspense in ancient Rome Elissa Rubria Honoria is a Vestal Virgin priestess of the sacred flame a visionary and one of the most powerful women in Rome Vestals are sacrosanct sworn to chastity on penalty of death but the emperor Nero holds himself above the law He pursues Elissa engaging her in a deadly. It almost pains me to give this book less than three stars but I had such mixed feelings about the book there was no way I could say with confidence that I liked it The writing was extremely well done and it was obvious that Trypak really did her research on life ancient Rome during Nero's time But I could only read the book in small doses which detracted a lot from the good pacing of the story and the overall flow This was for several reasons The main one was the religious Christian storyline I knew it would be there going in but I wasn't expecting it to be as heavy handed as it was and to be frank it got on my nerves It also did nothing for the plot and could have been taken out with no harm done to the overarching storyline of Elissa's struggle with Nero trying to control her and her family I felt it actually detracted from that storyline in fact as her conversion was just not convincingly portrayed and I felt that it weakened Elissa's character as I just saw her going from one cult of personality Nero to another PaulThe second reason was Elissa's sister Flavia who is uite possibly the most stupid self centered shallow excuse of a human being I've come across in fiction in a long time Every time she came on screen I wanted to reach in and strangle her Yes she's a teenager so I guess she's portrayed accurately but that didn't make me hate her any lessThe actual plot was interesting and I did enjoy the story on a general level However after reflecting on the book as a whole it left me unsatisfied Aside from the points I already raised I thought Tyrpak's characterization of the characters were very weak and one dimensional Flavia was a spoiled brat Justinius is the noble warrior Nero is an evil sociopath The characters were very stereotyped and neatly boxed with very little to no gray entering their character Review copy courtesy of the publisher via LibraryThing's Member Giveaway Free download æ PDF, DOC, TXT, eBook or Kindle ePUB free æ Suzanne Tyrpak

Suzanne Tyrpak æ 2 Read & download Game of wits and sexuality Or is Elissa really the pursuer She stumbles on dark secrets No longer trusting Roman gods she follows a new god Jesus of Nazareth jeopardizing her life and the future of The Roman Empire • New York Times bestselling author Terry Brooks says “a writer of real talenta promising new voice. Don’t let the fact that this is a well researched book set in ancient Rome put you off This story about feelings toward sexuality and trying to juggle faith and emotions is timeless However it also does a wonderful job of setting the stage of ancient Rome Make sure you have some time when you begin reading this – you may not want to put it down and it took me longer to read than most Kindle books which is a plus And you may want to keep Google handy; there were a few words I had to look up that weren’t in the Kindle dictionary not that that’s a bad thing as I love learning a bit while being entertainedThis book is definitely for adults only and not for prudes and I mean that word in no offensive way all you prudes out there as it is largely about sexuality However it manages to not be too graphic It’s a great read that is completely worth the time spent reading and the looking up of the few words
