"Elegant, secretive Sabina may be Empress of Rome, but she still stands poised on a knife's edge. She must keep the peace between two deadly enemies: her husband Hadrian, Rome's brilliant and sinister Emperor; and battered warrior Vix, who is her first love. But Sabina is guardian of a deadly secret: Vix's beautiful son Antinous has become the Emperor's latest obsession. Empress and Emperor, father and son will spin in a deadly dance of passion, betrayal, conspiracy, and war. As tragedy sends Hadrian spiraling into madness, Vix and Sabina form a last desperate pact to save the Empire. But ultimately, the fate of Rome lies with an untried girl, a spirited redhead who may just be the next Lady of the Eternal City"--… (mere)

In this final book in Kate Quinn's Empress of Rome series, Vibia Sabina is now Empress. With subtle guidance she leads her husband, the emperor Hadrian, who is by nature somewhat inclined to ruthlessness, to reign with greater grace and with vices hidden. Despite her elevated status in Rome she cannot entirely forget her first love, the barbarian-born Vix, who is now a high-status warrior in Rome's own army. Completing this odd yet captivating "love rectangle" is Hadrian's developing interest in Vix's foster son, Antinous. Though the premise may sound bizarre when boiled down to its essence like this with no nuance provided, most of the main characters in the book are in fact based on real individuals. This is both a really lovely story and a satisfying end to a series I began upon receiving the first book from my 2-year-old daughter, who had indiscriminately plucked it off the shelf in a checkout line at our local grocery!

A great end to an epic tale of Ancient Rome. I definitely learned a lot reading these novels, even if the history wasn't entirely accurate (Quinn freely admits where she took liberties). The way all the characters grew in this final novel impressed me, and I loved the way Quinn wove together fact with fiction. I am kind of glad I was mostly ignorant of the details regarding certain events in this book, although I admit that I got curious and wandered off to Wikipedia to look up Hadrian. That spoiled a few events for me, but again, the story around the history that Quinn conjures up made knowing how things turn out (somewhat) not a detriment at all. ( )

What will it mean for Vix and his family and friends now that his mortal enemy Hadrian is emperor?

Each book in this series was better than the one before, starting off with a very high standard indeed. I do wonder how they would strike somebody who wasn't familiar with the history and so maybe doesn't get all the 'OMG, disaster ahead' moments. I must admit I shed a tear or two at the end. ( )

Man I LOVE this series!!! I'm so sad its finished, but it was incredibly good. Fantastic book! ( )

Easily my favorite of this series. Was nice to see these characters again and to know where they ended up. I was worried again about following the children's stories, but Kate Quinn is very adept at making it feel like it's not the child's story, but a complete telling of their lives. Very nice end to the series. I look forward to her Borgia novels next. ( )

In memory of my first literary agent, Pamela Dean Strickler, who never lived to read the end of the Empress of Rome saga but who started it all when she picked Mistress of Rome out of a slush pile. Pam, I miss you more than I can say. This book is for you.
