What is our aim?’ asked Aulus. Glory for us, our families, and the Republic. There was no boast in Lucius’s words, just the ambition of every well-born.

To Nick Webb, A star! Contents. What is our aim?’ asked Aulus. Roman boy. ‘The Sybil must be wrong,’ he whispered, his soft brown eyes fixing his friend, as if by doing so they would make fact of speculation. Can an oracle be wrong?’ Aulus was desperately hoping that Lucius, so much wiser in the ways of the world than he, would say yes, but his companion did not oblige, he merely repeated the last part of the Sybil’s prophecy.

The Pillars of Rome (Republic) By Jack Ludlow. Although the novel starts out slow it build with some interesting characters. It definitely has signs of a larger trilogy in mind throughout the book. Ludlow is less formulaic the Mace and Turney. His characters are less cartoon-like then Scarrow and despite the longer development of characters refreshing. I look forward to the second volume to see the continued growth and adventures of Aquila and Marcellus. One person found this helpful.

It was over four hundred years since the leading families had founded the Republic, expelling the Tarquin kings, yet the memory of their despotism still lived on, making men suspicious of success, lest too much fortune tempt anyone to seek supreme power; to overthrow the Senate, suborn the Republic and reinstate a royal tyranny.

I am a history buff and especially the Roman empire period of history. Jack Ludlow's Pillars of Rome is an especially good example of the historical novel and I look forward to any other novels he writes.

This is not the best book on fictional Rome that I have read but because I enjoy this type of book I read it and bought the second book and ordered the third. Not bad, good way to pass some time

This is a great book for fans of historical fiction. It is a very readable style with a graet story that spans a number of years during the Roman republic. Characters are well developed and interesting as it describes the period very well with more attention to the plot line than to the events of the time period. This is the first of Ludlow's books I have read and I'm now a fan.
