A prequel to his epic Roma Sub Rosa series, The Seven Wonders follows series star Gordianus the Finder as an 18-year-old traveling the Mediterranean to witness the wonders of that fabled age.

The Seven Wonders
I enjoyed the book and listening to the reader. If the is a critizism of the author, it would he used modern terms for distances not known in ancient times and I recall the use of modern slange terms I do not think were known it those days. Notwithstanding these minor problems, it is a good book and I look forward to either reading or listening to more in this series.
