An ancient empire. A terrifying threat to the world's superpower. Only one man can stop it.
Rome: maverick military historian Myles Munro is on holiday with girlfriend and journalist Helen Bridle. He's convinced a bomb is about to be detonated at the American embassy.
New York: a delivery van hurtling through Wall Street blows up, showering the sky with a chilling message: America is about to be brought down like the Roman Empire. Juma, an African warlord set free by the Arab Spring, plans to make it happen.
When a US senator is taken hostage, a chilling chain of events begins, and Myles finds himself caught in a race against time to stop Juma. But he's not prepared for the shocking truth that the woman he once loved - Juma's wife, Placidia - has now become a terrorist.

Struggling to finish this ridiculous book

I never write reviews but am incensed by this terrible book. I normally love a good adventure no matter how cheesy however the plot of this book is so ridiculously implausible that it stretches credibility to breaking point. The characters are one dimensional stereotypes for whom I am frankly struggling to find any sympathy/empathy. The reviewer who described the narration as “ crushing it” must be a family friend because the non-English accents (particularly the women) are so cartoonish I keep thinking I am listening to an episode of the Simpsons. Absolutely dreadful!

James Bond style "boys own" adventure

Would you listen to Last Prophecy of Rome again? Why?

Enjoyable listen if you are into adventure yarns....but there are many very very "corny" moments where the author is relying on the listener to take a leap of faith for the overall journey.

I found this a bit farfetched at times and I struggled often to figure out the books outlook on things. Also, the characters didn't seem clear to me really. However, I did finish it and wanted it and might read others by this person if stuck. Myles is an unusual hero. It's hard to imagine a series based on him. One minute he has PTSD, then that seems to be dropped once it's not needed anymore and from then on he's fine. The narration was good.

Only one man can stop a terrorist plot

Military historian Myles Munro is caught up in a tornado of activity as people from his past come back to haunt him and ask for his help. A US Senator is taken hostage and the United States is threatened with terrorist attacks that will take the country back to the stone age. Or should I say the time of the fall of Rome.

The narration for Last Prophecy of Rome is done by Tim Bentinck and he absolutely crushes it. He's a British narrator (or at least he narrates in a British accent) which just adds another level to this already interesting story. Bentinck's smooth voice made listening to this book easy and enjoyable.

This story had a lot going on in it, but I never felt overwhelmed. King has a way of writing intricate and interesting plots that are both deep and fun to follow. The entire time I was reading this I felt like I was with Munro as he tried to stop plot after plot.

As a history nerd also, the tie-in's to ancient Rome were really different. I thought that King did a great job tying ancient history into modern times. This allowed for a lot of fast-paced action and deep thinking to interweave throughout the story.

Overall, I felt riveted to my seat the entire novel. I loved the Munro character and I'm excited that there is at least one more story in this series with his character in it. I haven't looked yet, but if there is an audiobook I really hope that Bentinck does that one too. He was the perfect voice for Munro.
