    " The Seven Wonders is the prequel to Stephen Sayler's novels of Rome and, like all of them, is rich in ancient Roman cultural and political detail. It is fabulous vacation reading for the Romanly inclined. We meet Gordianus as an 18-year-old who sets off with his elderly Greek tutor Antipater, for a tour of the seven wonders of the world. As often happens in books, Gordianus is faced with a series of murders along the wAy, each of which requires his unique blend of cleverness and craft to resolve. The plots are interesting but the best of these books is always Gordianus' musings on ancient civilizations. The only bad part is when the book is over because now I have to wait for Saylor to write another one. "

    " A welcome change of setting in this veteran series takes Gordianus around the ancient world. The locations are interesting and appealing and the separate stories are quite good, but the metaplot is somewhat weak and predictable. "
