With the Emperor slain by sorcery and a craven betrayer on the throne, to what future did the Legion march? Book Two of The Videssos Cycle Foul sorcery had slain the Emperor. Now the army of Videssos, betrayed by one man's craven folly, fled in panic from the savage victors. But there was no panic in the Legion, mysteriously displaced from Gaul and Rome into this strange world of magic. Wearily, Tribune Marcus Scaurus led his men through the chaos and enemy hordes in search of winter quarters, to regroup and seek to join up with Thorisin Gavras, now rightful ruler of Videssos. But in Videssos the city, capital of the beleaguered realm, Ortaias Sphrantzes, whose cowardice had caused their defeat, now sat upon the throne. There, behind great walls that had always made the city impregnable to storm or siege, he ruled with the support of evil sorcery. Overthrowing him seemed impossible. Grimly, Marcus Scaurus began the long march through hostile country toward that seemingly hopeless attempt.… (més)

A major continuation of HT's "Misplaced Legion" series, the conflation of a Comnenian Byzantium with a dimension travelling Roman legion yields a reasonable amount of entertainment. Having established his legion in a reasonable position vis-a-vis the state our hero joins in engineering a coup. Not HT's best but pretty good escapism. ( )

I am now convinced Turtledove is a closet homosexual and afraid to say so.

I mean, two guys with magic swords" "cross blades" and they are transported to another world? And in this book, they are afraid to "fight near each other" because they don't know "what might happen if their blades cross again?". Yeah, you don't need to be a board certified Psychologist to figure that one out. Harry, just say you want some sweet manlove and be done with it.

Other than that, this book has bored me to death. Very little magic, lots of domestic troubles, etc, etc. Why not just read Roman Homemakers Monthly?" ( )

This is the 2nd book of the series, the follow on to Misplaced Legion. The Legion and its Druid are still stuck in Videssos, trying to stay afloat in Empire politics. By this point it is obvious that Turtledove is engaging in his favorite pasttime - putting a famliiar historical element (the Legion) in a completely new situation, with enough real historical elements to provide the skeleton of a plot. Navigating Roman politics was nothing new for the Legions, so why not in Videssos? I enjoyed these books, but there is not enough emphasis on the strangeness of the situation for the troops, and not enough effort made to get them back to Rome. Still good, and one of my favorite series. ( )
