Very interesting story: well written and with fascinating and strong women. Amazing what hardships they had to deal with, without losing their spirit and their resilience. Interesting in terms of history as well

Very slow start - I was hoping it would be more historical in nature, but the romantic interactions took over a great deal of the novel. The last quarter of the book was the most interesting.

Interesting read about Masada and the people who we under siege there. Good character development. Each section almost reads like a short story but each chapter is neatly tied into the whole.

This is after all a novel. Those of you who likes tries will love it. Those of you who like history will no doubt find the holes I have and not like the inaccuracy of the siege of Masada. It is however well written and can be enjoyable as long as you realise it is just a story and not history

The potential of this book is astounding, yet the execution so poor that any goodwill towards the story is effectively squandered by a few pages in. The characters are flat and their voices barely differentiated; there almost seems no need to have four separate voices since the voices are identical. The situations are melodramatic. The writing is plodding and the book too long.

Edits, which one guesses would have been extremely wrenching for the author, could make this book into a lean and intriguing story worthy of praise. But as it stands, this book is painful and not worth the time involved to get through the meandering, overwritten prose and the inane characters.
