The Heart of Rome

First, I want to say that I'm extremely interested in Rome and the might that they carried through their highest time in history. With that said, i enjoyed this book just for the fact that it took place in Ancient Rome. Most of the story is from the point of view of Thea, a Jewish slave girl who works for Lepida her evil mistress, but it also tells the point of view from Lepida as well. This story has gladiators, slave girls falling in love with gladiators and having children, murder, betrayal, step sons falling in love with their step mothers, and of course, emperors and his enemies. This book would probably be more enjoyable for those who know a little bit about Rome.
