    Britannia: Lost Eagles of Rome #4 is a satisfying ending to this story. It ties up all the loose ends neatly. The bad guys get their just desserts, and our hero is left in that ambiguous place where he solved one problem, which may inadvertently lead to bigger problems. If you love historical mysteries as much as I do, this is a great read. Read Full Review

    Britannia is just good storytelling, you guys. You have an intriguing lead, staunch warrior woman second, and the lustful Emperor Nero at the center of each plot. Read Full Review

    This book is probably not for everyone. If your eyes started glazing over at the first mention of Varus, Germania and the Roman legions then this might be a stretch. However, if you are a fan of ancient history or historical fiction I would recommend giving this a read as an entertaining departure from real world events. Read Full Review

    The big talent that Peter Milligan was able to show here was intertwining politics with narrative story. I see it more and more often these days. I see it on social media, and sometimes even in the real world: People complaining about politics in a creator's stories. Usually, they're offended because the creator's politics don't align with their own, but sometimes, they're offended because there's politics in there at all. But in Britannia: Lost Eagles of Rome #4 it works. Read Full Review

    While it's possible to see the individual elements that make this story engaging, including another impressive set of backdrops for this era, the overall construction of the story is lacking in its climax. Read Full Review
