    Original Review HereAnything set in the Roman era instantly grabs my interest I was looking forward to reading Blood Forest by Geraint Jones The first thing to say about this book is it is not for the squeamish, or if you dislike swearing Films have ratings on them and this book made me think that the same should be true for novels There were some graphic, gory scen
