5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Storytelling
A wonderful story full of epic adventure and edge of your seat drama. Though I haven't finished reading The Shinning Ram yet, I'm already hooked by Lindsey's storytelling and shock twists and turns! Though set in Ancient Rome Lindsey's plot often deals with issues such as gender equality and slavery, that are still relevant today, and so offers a unique perspective. I can't wait to see where the story leads. Highly recommend to anyone looking for something different, exciting and thought provoking.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting and unusual
I love the mix of ancient Rome and sci fi in this story of intrigue, slavery and the fight of good against evil. The plot is gripping with many twists and turns along the way. I enjoyed it so much I had to re-read it right away!
Ro Lindsey has worked in West Africa and been a university teacher in Scotland and Wales. It has meant learning a lot about three rich and wonderful cultures. Ro has had an academic book published on beliefs in imperial Rome and another on the workings of power in human relations today. Academic and social interests have both helped to inspire The Shining Ram. But guiding a lobbying group against human trafficking and slavery has greatly shaped the book's final storyline. Hopefully this has only enriched the original ambition to produce a gripping and satisfying read. More important than all this is being happily married with two daughters. The writing task is helped along by such diversions as walking, music, volunteering, the arts, and politics.
