My MC was named Gina. Who’d have thought naming could be the hardest part of some of these games.
Genre: Historical Fiction
The main character is a young woman captured by the Romans during the reign of Ceasar as he tries to take over the world.
- The end kind of let me down, but I thoroughly enjoyed most of the journey.
- Every chapter begins with a flashback scene to your time on the run with your family.
- This book switched quite often to other perspectives, mostly the main character’s father or mother.
- These stories can be as sweet or risky as you wish, but you’ve got to spend diamonds for the extra scenes. Not paying is sort of the abbreviated version of each story.
- You can adopt a monkey and a greyhound dog this round.
- Your love interests are the wife of a Roman officer, a Roman senator, and Mark Antony.
- The main character goes through a heck of a lot in her life. There’s only one point where they really went out of the way to stretch the plot beyond the illogical point to keep the MC alive. Despite this, I really loved that scene.
- It must have taken quite a bit of work to get the MC’s life to parallel some key points in history.
Story themes include: family, seduction, and revenge. They don’t have many historical fiction stories. In fact, this might be the only one. I’ll have to check. I tend to like the stories with higher stakes than winning a dance off. Well worth reading.
