He worshipped physical strength; his ideal was a muscular wrestler. A dissolute sexual life was part of his insane reign. He hated intellectuals, thinkers and advocates of democratic principles. He enjoyed torturing and executing them. Commodus had been in power for years and in that time he would murder thousands of educated citizens, especially affluent ones. No one could be sure about their own life. There was one thing the Emperor had been enjoying the most – being carried on a litter through the Rome and pointing at random people with a dagger. These people were then arrested and executed. The democratic republic being nothing but a distant memory, the senators were wiped out one by one and the whole country lived in fear of the crimes committed by the perverse and unpredictable Emperor. The Empire was in decline falling apart, being controlled by the insatiable and idiotic Praetorian Guard. The Emperor´s closest protectors could basically do whatever they wanted. They could take whatever they wished at the public market without paying, or rape any woman they desired without being stopped or punished. Despite all of this, a formerly moderately rich Senator, by the name of Publius Helvius Pertinax, survived. He lived in seclusion not far from the centre of Rome, living an honourable life. One day, however, he stands up for a beautiful market trader against several drunk members of the Praetorian Guard trying to rape her. He saved the girl, but suddenly the everyday shopping od hundreds of people transforms into a demonstration and the former Senator garners unexpected attention. His fate unfolds in a series of unforeseen twists... The key element of this novel is author´s ability to escalate the story to the point when the reader can empathize with main characters. Thanks to dramatic plots this novel is a real page-turner. Jiří Vondrák, in Czech Republic well known author, has already written and published twelve books in total with The Fate of Pertinax being the fourth one. Except for being a book writer, Jiří Vondrák is especially known in Czech Republic as an author and a director of nearly one hundred and fifty documentary movies and is also known as a songwriter and a singer.

9 review for Historical Fiction: The Fate of Pertinax (Ancient Rome Fiction, Suspense Thriller Book, Historical Novel, Twisted Plot, Erotica)

  1. 5 out of 5

    Bethany Stachowiak

    Absolutely impressed Very good, raw. I am impressed. Pertinax gets a day in the sun. It's too bad that a sequel would be impossible. Had a bit of difficulty with the spelling errors- but I am impressed. Definitely deserves 5 stars. ☆☆☆☆☆

  2. 4 out of 5

    Hatchet Mouth

    Very interesting, never boring. Mostly accurate in regards to the history, I suppose. But the faults of the language, the spelling and grammatical errors are so egregious that two stars is being extremely generous. Were it not for the countless errors throughout the book, important words omitted from sentences, an 'e' inexplicably inserted at the end of the word 'just', i.e. 'juste', run-on sentences. It's full of mistakes that threaten to take readers directly out of the assassination plot.
