I am enjoying this series. I appreciate that the main character has a little sarcastic attitude that he shares with the reader. It adds some humor to the story where alot is serious.

In this second book of the series, Ruso thought that taking his slave, Tilla, back to her home territory would be a vacation. He was sadly mistaken. Hadrian is emperor, but has not built his wall. Tilla's sympathies are with her tribe, but they are not happy with her any more than the Roman soldiers are. The quandary of people caught in a war zone is all to applicable to today's world. The gruesome murder of a soldier and the apparent insanity of the previous doctor make the situation very dangerous, but Ruso and Tilla manage to solve it and return to their previous post.
