The BookViral Review:

Intelligent and thought-provoking, compelling historical European fiction drama unfolds in true P.J. Mann style with Aquila et Noctua drawing her fans into the contrary worlds of ancient Rome.

Embracing all the drama and sensuality expected of historical European fiction, she strikes the perfect balance between lavish detail and powerful narrative that effortlessly enthrals the imagination. Quick to gather momentum, Mann’s attention to detail is superb; creating an immersive sense of time and place in prose that is eloquently poignant as she moves seamlessly between the social backdrop of Rome and the characters around whom Aquila et Noctua revolves. Characters that bring depth and complexity to her plot as she paints a vivid picture of  Roman life from both ends of the social spectrum.

The lives of slaves in ancient Rome has fueled a host of different stories but like the best of them, Mann’s Aquila et Noctua is engaging because it’s actually about something of value: the unbreakable bonds of love and learning, the clash between opposing perspectives, and the grim fact that slaves were simple commodities to be bought and sold and disposed of at will.

Unerringly vivid in its telling, Aquila et Noctua is historical European fiction at its very best and proves a welcome release from Mann. Deserving of a prominent place on your bookshelf it is highly recommended.

Authors writing about prejudice and racism in literature

Whilst the issues of prejudice and discrimination are multi-faceted and complicated beyond belief, a key moment for me was the day I picked up ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’. Harper Lee implicitly drilled down the relative unfairness of human existence into my 12-year-old brain, creating a sense of outrage that has stayed with me throughout my life.
