    Eterlimus is a historical fiction novel written by Aziz Hamza, a Saudi novelist, and published in both Arabic and English It s considered as the first novel in Roman history for a Saudi author What caught my eye was the main character s roleThe revolution sparked a wave of anger amongst citizens across the Kingdom after Sextus the King s son raped the noble woman Lucretia, causing the fall of the last Roman Kingdom in 509 BC And the salvation of its citizens by the hands of a pimp called E Eterlimus is a historical fiction novel written by Aziz Hamza, a Saudi novelist, and published in both Arabic and English It s considered as the first novel in Roman history for a Saudi author What caught my eye was the main character s roleThe revolution sparked a wave of anger amongst citizens across the Kingdom after Sextus the King s son raped the noble woman Lucretia, causing the fall of the last Roman Kingdom in 509 BC And the salvation of its citizens by the hands of a pimp called EterlimusThe premise was intriguing, and the book wasn t that big not your usual Roman history book full of overly complicated language and long descriptions , so I ve decided to give it a try.Eterlimus himself is introduced as the only member of his family that had survived King Tarquinius s anger, as he d been rescued by his neighbor, Flavius Since Flavius was a slave trader, and not just a random one, but a famous man who was trusted by the people, we can imagine how the boy turned out, growing up in such an environment He s become famous among the wealthy of Rome as well, with strong connections among the elite class that eventually had made his house of pleasure a second senate The author s style flows naturally and makes it easy to get lost in the story I ve always loved the theme of Rome, and I think, even back at school, it was the only part of the History course that I actually enjoyed I won t lie that I care much about all the dates and names and significant historical events But I ve always found their civilization beautiful and fascinating, and I ve got plenty of Rome s air from this book Only instead of boring historical facts, throw in dark intrigues and cunning characters, and you can imagine what this book is about I also liked the detail that the author put into every scene.I think for fans of historical fiction, Eterlimus would make for a perfect weekend read I got a copy of the book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

    A book is the only mean of time travel known to man And historical fiction is the best way to know your ancestors Therefore this genre has grabbed my attention since quiet some time This was the sole reason why I decided to read this book as soon as it was given to me.The cover page is tastefully done It takes you instantly to the roman empire which was at its worst phase which is described in the book The book is about Eterlimus who is the master of a pleasure house when the ruthless king A book is the only mean of time travel known to man And historical fiction is the best way to know your ancestors Therefore this genre has grabbed my attention since quiet some time This was the sole reason why I decided to read this book as soon as it was given to me.The cover page is tastefully done It takes you instantly to the roman empire which was at its worst phase which is described in the book The book is about Eterlimus who is the master of a pleasure house when the ruthless king Tarquinius has got hold of the entire kingdom with force and treachery Eterlimus s family was killed by the same king He was the sole survive of the family when Flavius took him under his wings and raised him like a son Eterlimus did not harbor the idea of revenge because he was taught better UNTIL, one of the girls in his pleasure house was assaulted and mutilated on Sextus s orders Eterlimus wants to avenge the girl and hence births a plan of Sextus s downfall, which throwspeople in fire than he hopes to.The story progresses quickly It is not one of those fat history text books The writing is also very gripping You will find yourself on the edge of the bed desperate to know what happens next The narration islike a play than a story There situations are in simple English whereas the dialogues are loaded with ancient English There is also a mix of tenses in the book at few places The narration is in past tense but certain places it jumps to present tense and first person.The characters carry shades of gray Each one is darker than the previous one There are few instances in the book which you may find shallow The love story of Eterlimus and Alba is not very convincing It felt like an obligation to put it in the book The book overall gives you the feel of ancient Rome which was exactly what i was going for The characters are described without being partial The book ends with a suspense This book calls for a sequel.The book is a fair attempt by the author I would like to see what he has in store for us next.Reviewer VeenaAfter Dark Reading Nook

    I was given this book, by the author, in order for me to review it with an honest oppinion The story was extremely gripping, I will give it that It was very historical, and it was clear that the author had researched in detail Although very common in Roman History, people had very similar names to one another due to family lines, this did confuse the story Also, the ending, which could have been happy, was actually very sad and made me feel disappointed This was particularly as the author I was given this book, by the author, in order for me to review it with an honest oppinion The story was extremely gripping, I will give it that It was very historical, and it was clear that the author had researched in detail Although very common in Roman History, people had very similar names to one another due to family lines, this did confuse the story Also, the ending, which could have been happy, was actually very sad and made me feel disappointed This was particularly as the author was so close to giving Eterlimus a happy ending However, Hamza s characters were very well mapped out, and I did enjoy the book

    Eterlimus by Aziz Hamza is a 236 page historical novel I really liked Hamza s quote If we want to understand what is happening in the present, and to see what will happen in the future, we have to look into the history.Get ready to be transported back in time I was completely engrossed in this tale of backstabbing, corruption and intrigue The writing and descriptions are excellent I felt as though each scene played out in my head like a mini movie.
