Love this series. The characters seem very real to me (although I admit my knowledge of Roman Britain is limited). Enough detail to be clear this story is set somewhere very different than our world but the stories are compelling enough (and universal enough) to keep you engaged and guessing.

It seemed to me that Downie couldn't make up her mind as to who the villains were. First it was one of the councilmen. No, wait, it wasn't him it was a guard. No, wait, it wasn't the guard it was the other councilman. No, wait, it was the guard and the first councilman. By the time I reached the third turn around I was so thoroughly confused I couldn't remember half the evil deeds the bad guy (whoever that was) was supposed to have done.
