      As I expected, this was a great read. I simply couldn't put it down, it got me hooked at the opening line and I really enjoyed every minute of reading this amazing book. I liked everything about Daughters of Rome, just as I liked everything about Mistress of Rome. Daughters of Rome is a wonderful mix of well-developed characters, very interesting plot, historical events in ''The Year of Four Emperors'', political intrigue, romance, fights, great descriptions of life in ancient Rome and really, r [...]

      This wasn't my cup of tea. For being historical fiction, it was very light. This isn't particularly a bad thing for me, but it felt so cheesy and cheap. It felt like 'National Enquirer' for this time period. That didn't work for me. The words "slut" and "whore" were completely overused. It was like an episode of the Jerry Springer show. These 'historical' women felt way to contemporary (with their attitudes and speech) for this time period. They could have been teleported from the world today.Th [...]

      I must admit, I'm a sucker for almost anything set in ancient Rome. The tumult, the marble, the breastplates, the decadence - it all fascinates me. And when I started reading Kate Quinn's DAUGHTERS OF ROME, I expected to be drawn right in; after all, it doesn't take much for me. What I did not expect to be as enthralled as I am; not only does Ms Quinn's second novel (her first is the bestselling MISTRESS OF ROME) brim with witty dialogue and marvelous descriptions, but her four women protagonist [...]

      For readers used to a Julia Quinn-style Regency tone, this novel would make a good introduction to more serious ancient historical fare. We do manage to secure happy-ish endings for most, if not all, of our heroines. But the light touch is deceptive.While the snarky tone of the writing and the scenes of privileged noblewomen fussing endlessly over weddings and clothing might give the impression that this is a fun romp through ancient Rome, beneath the glossy surface is novel that tackles some ve [...]

      How does one remain strong when the world and the life that you have built falls apart around you? Daughters of Rome answered this question in the simplest way possible; one just keeps on living. In the "Year of the Four Emperors in Ancient Rome" it would appear that the turmoil was a constant factor of life, but the four main characters in this book; Cornelia, Marcella, Lollia and Diana not only overcome adversity but prove themselves in their own unique way that they are strong women who will [...]

      I have had Kate Quinn’s debut novel, Mistress of Rome, on my to-read shelf since January 2010! And I totally forgot about it—this is why I love my to-read shelf. I don’t remember how I learned about it, so it’s serendipitous that I found Daughters of Rome, which has whet my appetite even more for Mistress. I saw this book on the “New Books” shelf at my library and decided to “give it a chance”. That’s a code phrase for “I’m not really sure I’ll enjoy this, but it is withi [...]

      Won as a First Read. First off, I was a history major, so I love fiction based in ancient history. This novel does a great job of immersing the reader in the nuances of daily Roman life without coming across as grandstanding (I hate when authors throw nifty facts at me for the sake of showing off their research skills). The casual references to menu, dress and customs are seamlessly incorporated into the flow of the narrative and don't feel forced at all.Quinn maintains an energetic pace with a [...]

      I read Kate Quinn's debut, Mistress of Rome, last year and found it an extremely enjoyable read, so I'd been looking forward to her follow-up ever since and snapped it up as soon as it was released. Daughters of Rome is based on real events (in this case the Year of Four Emperors), but unlike Mistress, which had one central character, it takes a more sweeping, politically orientated view of the time it depicts, with the focus on four cousins who become entangled in these events. These women are [...]

      Another great and well researched read by Kate Quinn. I did find this one a little hard to get into at first, but what things got rolling it picks up! It is set again in Rome, about 20 or so years ahead of Mistress of Rome, and involving many of the character we meet there, and setting up different events and experiences. It's placed in a tumultuous period of Roman history where in a 12 month period 4 emperors came into power, with 3 loosing their life in the struggle.Again we're greeted with a [...]

      I loved this book. However on the issue of whether or not I liked it the same as I liked Mistress of Rome, or better, or not as much, the jury is still out.The characters were very developed to the point where you could predict their actions. Not it a boring way though, the plot was in no way predictable.I've heard many complaints about Marcella. Having read Mistress of Rome first, I know how her life turns out. My heart went out to her for the last few chapters of Daughters of Rome. So, she had [...]

      I read this after reading Lindsey Davis's wonderful book, The Course of Honor, which covers similar territory. Compared to that book this one was just okay. The author is a good story teller--after the first few chapters which seemed dull and left me wondering what the book was going to be about. But the real problem for me was how anachronistic so much of it felt.The characters' language is full of very recent slang--slang that if you read it in a contemporary novel would define a character as [...]

      This was a surprisingly good read for meI am not a big fan of historical fiction set in ancient civilizations as I often get confused by all of the, well, history. Author Kate Quinn did a wonderful job of telling her story about the Year of Four Emperors, which I knew nothing about, without getting too bogged down in the politics.The story is told through the voices of the Cornelias - two sisters and two cousins - and the effects of the turmoil on all of them. Cornelia the eldest is married to P [...]

      Daughters of Rome is definitely a fun read with prose that flows so naturally you easily breeze through it. Once I got sucked into the lives of these four women I could not wait to read what happened next. Political upset, seduction, romance, betrayalloved it!

      Iako smještena u okvir burnih zbivanja u Rimskom Carstvu u periodu poznatom kao godina Četiri cara, ovoj priči mi je nedostajalo stvarne historijske ubjedljivosti. Četiri glavne junakinje kao da su sad izašle iz serije "Seks i grad" i kao takve samo premještene u Anno Domini 69. Dramatična završnica ponudila je ipak odgovarajući rasplet, te mi izazvala interes za čitanje nastavaka ove trilogije. Sve u svemu, dobar početak serijala.

      Oh wow, I'm so glad I made the decision to re-read this book.I forgot how much of a bad person Marcella was. Time went on and I wanted to shake her more and more - she was an excellent character though, even if she was a bad person.This time around, I was fixated on Diana and Llyn's relationship, it was so subtle and understated and they never betrayed who they truly were. The pairings in this book are all excellent really; Cornelia and her Centurion (And she finally got to have babies!!!), Loll [...]

      "'Things have changed, Cornelia. This isn't Rome anymore, not the Rome we know. The kingmakers rule this Rome.'"Daughters of Rome is the story of four women from the Cornelii clan who survived the Year of the Four Emperors.Unlike Mistress of Rome and Empress of the Seven Hills, “Daughters of Rome” is written exclusively in third person. Reading this book right after “Empress of the Seven Hills”, I found this odd. None of the women in the book seemed to outshine the other, there were no c [...]

      An astrologist reads into the future of each of the four Cornelii girls; sisters Marcella and Cornelia and their cousins Diana and Lollia. He envisions one of the young women to become the empress of Rome and to have blood on her hands, he also foresaw 11 marriages in total.Set in Rome A.D 69, approximately 20 years prior to Kate Quinn’s first novel, Mistress of Rome, it delves into the year that four emperors ruled. Each of the sisters are well developed and I could relate to each of them in [...]

      Daughters of Rome was an excellent read. I'm a huge fan of books set in ancient Rome and Kate Quinn really captured my attention with this book. This book is about four women all different from one another. They all intrigued me in their own way and nobody is really what she seems at first because due to events happening in this book they all quite change. I liked all main characters and I found myself liking one character but disliking her in the next few chapters. But my favorite of the four w [...]

I know a few of you have thought the same. Well, I think that the story would have been great. For that matter, I think it _was_ great, BUT unfortunately, the book is packed with kissing and, well, the step beyond kissing. The chapters were really long, which I don't mind, but I think it definitely could have been done with far less detai [...]

      "Daughters of Rome" is a prequel to the fabulous "Mistress of Rome," but it's not necessary to have read one to enjoy the other. There are some overlapping characters but the stories are very different: whereas "Mistress" was a violence-driven whirlwind of a plot, "Daughters" is a more political, intrigue-laden story. The rise and fall of 4 Roman emperors is seen through the eyes of four upper-class young women, and their own fortunes rise and fall just as quickly and unexpectedly as their polic [...]

      This second installment in Kate Quinn's Rome series far outstrips its predecessor ("Mistress of Rome"), and that is saying a great deal! Once again the reader is immersed in the vivid color and life of ancient Rome as seen through the eyes of a group of people around whom the warped fate of the Empire revolves. As with the previous book, the language was occasionally too modern for the setting, but Quinn's style is so smooth that the mental speed bumps are easy to move on from.If there is any si [...]

      I fell in love with how the author brings parts of Rome to life. I love Rome. It's enchanting. Ms.Quinn brought such life to my memory of the Forum and Circs Maximus and Palatine Hill. The way she wrote abut the vendors at the Forum was simple but made the memory of the ruins in my head spring to life-and I truly enjoyed the mental pictures. The story is based a lot in fact, which I enjoyed. As for the main characters some of them I liked, soe not so much. Not because they were villians (i love [...]

      Won this on firstreads!I was pretty excited about this book and I enjoyed the Roman history in it. The only problem was toward the middle it all became about who was sleeping with who. None of the scenes was too explicit which I appreciate, it just became the only focus for a bit which I didn't care for. Great beginning and great ending.

      This is the prequel to Mistress of Rome, a book that I found myself glued to. I had high hopes for this one too… and thankfully was not disappointed.DoR follows the fortunes of the 4 Cornelias: 2 sisters (Cornelia and Marcella) and their cousins (Lollia and Diana). Rome is going through troubled times – the year of 4 Emperors and the girls lives – and loves - are overturned. Cornelia is happily married to Piso and excited about her role as the future Empress of Rome when Piso is named as E [...]

      Daughters of Rome is a wonderfully fast paced ride through the Year of the Four Emperors in Ancient Rome. Author Kate Quinn absolutely immerses the reader in Roman culture, right down to the tiniest details. It is an all senses experience of the city. One of the most interesting and detailed segments is the food – especially at the dinner parties – OMG! Things that you would never imagine eating. How about a fish served to you while it was dying so that it looked pretty? I would have said, [...]

      The Feminine Side of RomeTypically historical fiction set in ancient Rome focuses on senators, military geniuses, mad emperors, and a lot of blood. Daughters of Rome has six emperors (It takes place largely in the year of four emperors—then add in Nero and Titus mentioned in the beginning and ending portions.), chariot races and battle scenes, but much more predominantly it has four women of the patrician family of the Cornelii. These women, who have four profoundly different approaches to liv [...]

      The best historical fictions in my opinion are always the ones that have a little factual substance weaved skillfully throughout the storyline. I believe that histories have been written with a little embellishment in the first place and the fact that a writer can paint a whole picture (even though fictional) from small facts taken from those histories is amazing. Daughters of Rome, written by the talented Kate Quinn, is one of those historical fictions that I find absolutely breathtaking and in [...]

      Kate Quinn is on her way to becoming the best ‘All-That's-Ancient-Rome’ historical fiction writer ever. I loved reading her first book: Mistress of Rome- never read anything like it before-Fabulous (read that review here).In this year’s novel, Daughters of Rome, Quinn brings us into the lives of the four 'Cornelias'. Patrician nobility at its best, the young women take us through a roller coaster of emotions as they live in splendour, grandeur as well as gruesome tragedy. Such young lives [...]
