Alt="the last roman"The Last Roman: Book One: Exile by B.K. Greenwood

Seasoned imperial officer Marcus Sempronius Gracchus leads the 9th Roman Legion into bloody battle against a fierce barbarian rival. It’s a battle he won’t survive. When he awakens three days later, clawing his way from a hastily dug grave,

Marcus realizes he cannot be killed—but that won’t stop him from dying time and again over the next 2,000 years. Burdened with a debt he cannot pay, is he cursed to walk the Earth without end?

Meanwhile, other immortals plan to bring the world crashing to its knees. Can he prevent the inevitable and find redemption?

The Last Roman lies somewhere between fantasy, historical drama, and a techno-thriller. Don’t miss the debut novel from B.K. Greenwood, and part one of an exciting new trilogy that will have fans of Highlander and Jason Bourne on the edge of their seats.

Book review for The Last Roman: Book One: Exile 

The retelling of Christ’s crucifixion is controversial, and to introduce as a hero the man who killed Christ and to portray the Apostle Thomas as an anti-hero is almost sacrilegious. Almost. Greenwood bravely gives us a story that is original and nuanced: it’s not your typical good vs. evil as the characters are neither steadfastly pious nor irredeemably faithless. The exposition is slowly fed among the backdrop of nonstop action and the motivations behind the main characters make sense, for the most part.My take on our two main characters. Throw Lucius Vorenus, Neo, Batman, and Jason Bourne in a blender and sprinkle some John McClane on top. Blend until smooth and you’ve got Marcus, our hero: A Roman soldier, who must endure the burden of killing the King of the Jews. He channels the consequences of his actions to become a crusader, if not believer, of Christianity. Then there’s Thomas, devout follower of Christ (after he was convinced to remove his doubt, mind you), who travels the Roman Empire spreading the gospel. But Thomas is fickle where Marcus is steadfast. One tragic event happens and he succumbs to the dark side. He’s a little bit Darth Vader (but NOT Marcus’s father – at least in this book!), with a Michael Corleone vibe going on.Greenwood gives us a unique twist on the most iconic and sacred stories of man.  Who messes with the New Testament without summoning a lightening strike?  It ends with a cliffhanger and I can’t wait to see what happens because I was left with a definite unsettling chill in my bones. With superb historical authenticity, Chick Lit Cafe highly recommends The Last Roman: Book One: Exile by B.K. Greenwood.
