    1. The sequel to Inceptio continues the tale of Carina Mitela and the alternative history country of Roma-Nova. Once again , the author has given us a fast paced page turner filled with wonderful characters and intriguing plots. The main story line in the first half of Perfiditas concerns an attempted coup against the Matriarchal government of Roma-Nova and what Carina has to go through to thwart the treason. Her development continues from Inceptio as she hones her skills and abilities as a member [...]

    2. Find this and other reviews at: flashlightcommentary.In the spirit of full disclosure I think it important to note I started Alison Morton's Perfiditas four times before actually finishing the novel. I'd no experience with the series, but had been told familiarity was of no consequence and naively jumped into book two without a second thought. Unfortunately, my information wasn't as accurate as I'd been led to believe and I quickly felt overwhelmed by the material. Aware my lack of understanding [...]

    3. Perfiditas is even better than Inceptio - and that was excellent. Roma Nova is a credible place, the characters complex and the dialogue witty and well done. If you want an action packed, edge of the seat read then I suggest you buy this book. There is a third installment of Captain Carina Mitela and her sexy husband Conradas coming next year - something to look out for.

    4. I was gifted this book by the author via Book Funnel. I have reviewed it voluntarily.The plot is exciting. It includes suspenseful sequences of events, and reversals of fortune. It shows the fortitude of female Roma Novans from small girls to grandmothers. Perfiditas also displays the loyalty of most of the men of Roma Nova to the matriarchy. I was pleased that men in general didn't want to see the Imperatrix overthrown, and weren't interested in collaborating with misogynistic men.For my comple [...]

    5. A worthy sequel to the excellent INCEPTIO. The story continues, still narrated by our heroine, Karen Brown, who has now reverted to her birth name of Carina Mitela and has completely embraced her new life in the fascinating country of Roma Nova, where a tough matriarchial society has endured since its founding. Seven years have passed, during which Carina and her husband Conradus have both enjoyed considerable career advancement in their professional roles with the PGSF (Praetorian Guard Special [...]

    6. Excellent alternative history with an intriguing take on (reimagining of) gender roles. These books are so good that I bought them one after another over a weekend and read them back to back.There are many novels that take as their starting point the assumption that a major historical event turned out differently: The South won the US Civil War, Hitler conquered Europe and kept it, the Spanish bested Drake or Napoleon won at Waterloo. Alison Morton’s four Nova Roma books take a different path. [...]

    7. Perifditas is an alternate history and science fiction novel. It is set in a country, named Roma Nova that is ruled and dominated by women. Roma Nova was created in 395 AD when Emperor Theodosius’s final decree banned all pagan religions. Romans, who are still loyal to the old religions and sought refuge, trekked out of Italy and into a country that is similar to Slovenia. Over time, women began to rule over Roma Nova and also became a matrilineal society, while the men defended the country. A [...]

    8. Disclaimer: I got this book free and was asked to review it in return.This was very very close to being a five star review and I regret not being able to give this book that rating.I'll start with the negative and the reason this has gotten four stars, at times the writing was confusing - I would read and re-read the sentence and not be sure whether it was the fact that I didn't know what happened in the first book that made the sentence confusing or whether it was the sentence structure. That a [...]

    9. Having enjoyed Inceptio, the first book in Alison Morton's Roma Nova alternative history thriller, I was looking forward to reading the sequel Perfiditas.As in the previous book, this is a taut, fast-moving thriller packed with intrigue and adventure, with Carina donning different disguises and identities with alacrity to thwart would-be overthrowers of the state, which runs along the lines of ancient Roman law and society, but with the advantages of modern technology.There is an interesting int [...]

    10. It’s alternative history…so based on the Roman empire but with social norms etc being completely reversed. I don’t recommend this book as a standalone read though.Though the Roma Nova world is ‘familiar’ it is still complex and complicated if you are picking up this second book as a standalone. The previous book sets us up nicely for this one and reading it out of sequence isn’t something I would recommend. Though everything was wrapped up in the first book, there is still the comple [...]

    11. As good, if not better than the firstPerfiditas is the clever continuation of the story which began in Inceptio, and follows the story of Captain Carina Mitela of the Praetorian Guard Special Forces as she continues her life with her family in Roma Nova. As always, the momentum of the narrative never falters and the pace continues with a fast and furious story of conspiracy, treachery and betrayal at the highest level.What I like best about this series is the author’s fine attention to detail [...]

    12. Perfiditas is book 2 in the Roma Nova series and is a mystery thriller. I really enjoyed book 1 Inceptio and the concept of the Roman nation continuing thousands of years later and being run by the female lines of families. The second book continues with lots of characters from the first book and takes place approximately 7 years later.Captain Carina Mitela works for the military, but is also the junior head of her Roman family. She must wear many hats of duty in her everyday life. When a secret [...]

    13. Opening Sentence:‘Captain Carina Mitela?’Alison Morton takes us straight into the continuation of Carina’s tempestuous career in the second novel of her alternative history series in which Ancient Rome has survived to the present time as independent state, Roma Nova. These are fast-paced detective thrillers in their own right, and the fascinating invention of the setting provide a real icing on the cake. This is a sequel but the book stands perfectly well alone and will appeal to anybody w [...]

    14. I gave up studying history in my early teens and rarely read historical novels. But I make an exception for Alison Morton's Roma Nova series of alternative histories. I love the mix of ancient Roman traditions with twenty-first century technology. Book 2 in the series continues the story of Carina Mitela, military officer, senior member of one of the Twelve Houses - and inveterate rule-breaker. She is now married to Conrad and they have three children. The family, their friends and colleagues ar [...]

    15. Years have passed since the events in Inceptio but our main character Carina is no less awesome for it.It's possible she's quite a bit more awesome, or maybe it was because this book dives a bit deeper into the culture of Roman Nova (the society founded by Ancient Romans and ruled by women ever since) but regardless I enjoyed this book even more than the first.Carina continues to overcome obstacles by being a general kick-ass lady, and yet stays remarkably human and even, dare I say, feminine wh [...]

    16. This series keeps getting better! As the characters are more fully developed, and the story continues, the books just keep improving. PERFIDITAS is fast-paced, with rich details, plot twists, and memorable characters. I could not put it down & can't wait to read the next one! This series should appeal to fans of Lindsay Davis's "Falco" series (street-smart, independent private detective in ancient Rome), and to those who enjoy David Weber's "Honor Harrington" series (strong female lead in mi [...]

    17. Maybe because I didn't read the first one I felt a little lost. By the midpoint though I was wrapped up in all the conspiracies and different characters.

    18. In the second book of the trilogy Perfiditas, the reader once again meets with Karen Brown, in her new and transformed state as Captain Carina Mitela of the Praetorian Guard Special Forces. Carina finds herself once more at the receiving end of an attempt on her life, which throws her full force into the depths of an extensive underground conspiracy to topple the government of Roma Nova. Taking matters into her own hands, as usual, Carina calls on some old acquaintances known for operating outsi [...]

    19. The cover is in line with the rest of the books in the series. I haven't changed my opinion on the cover, I still dislike it. But this time I looked up what Perfiditas means: faithlessness and treachery. Oooh, piqued my interest instantly!The blurb gives a little from the previous book, which acts as a nice reminder for those who have read it. Perfiditas begins seven years after the first, and Carina has got it together with love interest, Conrad, and is now a mother of two. I'm disappointed tha [...]

    20. With an efficient, professional writing style, the author delivers a thriller filled with cleverly laid-out strategy and well-crafted characters.First reviewed on Tower of Babel torretadebabelCenturies ago, a group of families fled to settle away and a new Rome was founded. In order to survive, men fought and woman took to economics and ruling. An equilibrium was reached with an Emperatrix, twelve noble families and a high technology army comprised of men and women alike.After seven years of tra [...]

    21. PERFIDITAS is a thriller set in the alternate timeline of Roma Nova. The story follows Captain Carina Mitela of the Praetorian Guard Special Forces as she works to thwart an attempted coup. The unknown conspirators have cleverly ensured that she herself is incriminated, and so she is sought by her own people and unable to trust anyone. In addition to protecting her country and a way of life she has come to love, she has to prove her innocence.The plot is fast paced from the start, and there is n [...]

    22. After reading Inceptio, I was especially eager to read its sequel and learn more about the world of Roma Nova. I found this book to be good, but not quite as good as the first one. Why?I didn't learn as much about the Paterfamilias as I wanted to. In Inceptio, Ms. Morton mainly stuck with the first-person POV of Carina Mitela/Karen Brown. However, every once in a while she inserted a bit of POV (third person) from Renschmann, the main antagonist of the first novel.In this book, the entire story [...]

    23. Carina Mitela was raised in the US but has been transplanted in her ancestral country, who, while rooting out a conspiracy finds her motives questioned by everyone, even her husband. In this story her situation goes from bad to worse as conspiracies are revealed and Carina's method's condemned. Perfiditas deals with a conspiracy to remove the female superiority of the country and replace it with a Patriarchal society. Roma Nova has a very strict military structure reminiscent of Ancient Rome. Ci [...]

    24. This is the second in a series of novels set in an alternative history, where the country of Nova Roma, has developed out of the end of the Roman Empire and where some Roman customs prevail. The novel is however an out and out thriller and although thoroughly enjoyable, I sometimes felt that the historical elements sometimes slowed down the pace of the story with essential explanations. As a one-time archaeologist with a solid grounding in the Roman period I should imagine others might struggle. [...]

    25. Another fine Roma Nova alternate history thriller by Alison Morton. This is the second of her Roma Nova series and every bit as exciting as the others I've read. Our heroine, Carina Mitela, is a few years older than inand has reached the rank of Captain in the PGSF (Praetorian Guard Special Forces) when a contact of hers shows up asking for help finding an employee. This seemingly minor incident is the trigger for the discovery of a plot to overturn the government by a nasty member of the Praeto [...]

    26. * Copy received from Historical Fiction Virtual Tours for an honest reviewPerfiditas by Alison Morton was an adventure! I think that his author really has done her research. She greats a “Roma Nova”. Captain Carina Mitela was a fantastic lead character! I found her to be interesting, strong and very capable! She was a great example of a strong roman women. This alternative roman is led by women! I also loved that idea of an alternative history! I feel completely inadequate in Roman history b [...]

    27. This whole story fascinates me. Maybe it's the alternate history or the whole Roman culture but whatever the case, it is an intriguing story. In the first book I was a little skeptical of the rapid transition of Karen Brown to Carina Mitela. But this second book takes place years later and Carina is now fully entrenched in her new life and I'm much more willing to believe the changes. Perhaps as intriguing as the alternate history and the Roman culture is the interaction between the many charact [...]

    28. My verdict – ****4.5 stars****Perfiditas is another winner for Alison Morton in this worthy sequel to Inceptio. The novel may be 2nd in the Roma Nova series, but it works as a stand-alone, too. It has everything I love in story: it is fast-paced, spine tingling, nerve-wracking, and has vivid characters, including the kick-ass Carina. Though the country Roma Nova is all in the author’s mind in this alternate historical, it feels very real. Morton’s knowledge of Roman history and culture shi [...]

    29. *** Copy gifted by the author in exchange for an honest reviewPerfiditas is the second booking in the Roma Nova series. Personally, I like the concept of a modern day Roman Empire and I think the author does a good job exploring what that could look like. I also appreciate having a female protagonist and strong female characters. There is plenty of action and intrigue in this book as well. Sometimes I found the writing to be a bit confusing. I think it was the mix of Latin words and UK phrases. [...]
