StevenF Review of Foundations

Remmy Meggs’ latest novel is Foundations: Grapes of Rome. It is the second book in a series based on the life of the Praetorio family of the Roman Republic. In this book, Don Dante and his family face dangers from political rivals to acts of nature. As he starts to mature into manhood, Don Dante also falls in love.

The familiar characters such as Anthony, Ettore, and Naevius are still in the book, as well as some new characters. Hayden is a young boy who along with his mother are employed by the family. Atticus, Dante’s Goth bodyguard, Lucius, a boy soldier, and Marcella, Dante’s fiance are all introduced and given prominence in this book.

The characters are well-developed and realistic to the time period. Not only is a picture drawn of the characters, but of all aspects of Roman life. Mr. Meggs has a way of drawing his readers not only into the story, but is very good at presenting history in such a way that the reader not only is entertained but is taught about things he/she may never have imagined. I wholeheartedly encourage readers to pick up this book and enjoy the humor, horror, and history within this book. I rate it 5 stars out of 5.
