A Glorious Return by Elijah Wingnut Blog Tour

You will need a big imagination, a broad mind, and a raunchy sense of humour to read the Sex Blood & Glory series. It has no regard for genre. A Glorious Return is the second instalment in the 5 part series.

After being transported 2,000 years back in time to ancient Rome, Nate temporarily leaves his new familia behind to travel to Judea where her serves alongside Spartacus in Titus' ruthless siege of Jerusalem. In the jumbled timeline and alternate history he finds himself in, Nate witnesses an infamous crucifixion.

A Glorious Return picks right up where Vegas Then Rome left off.
This book was a bit different from the first, as we already know the main characters and their relationships.
I would say this book is about Nate's adventures in a new land, with “new” friends, but based on true events.

At this point, Nate had decided he wants to join the Roman campaign in Judea. Although the timeline is still a bit “off” from how WE perceived these ancient events, nonetheless they have/will occur – and Nate gets to witness/participate.

Action, intrigue, heartbreak and more all await him on his journey from lowly slave to battalion caretaker to.....I don't want to say too much, as I don't want to give away the story. What I will say is that a Roman siege of Jerusalem leads to tragic (but necessary) events.

While I was completely engaged in the main story, again I have a ton of questions as to what is really going on!
We were given glimpses into life in Rome – including Jane (evil) and Amanda (aww), and how they're fitting in.
I wasn't expecting the end to come as quickly as it did, and while this was an interesting 2nd book to the series, it was emotionally charged from beginning to end.

I was in high school when The Hobbit gave me my first taste of fantasy novels. Years later, when on business in Sydney, I wandered into a book store and happened across a copy of The Lord of the Rings. The world of hobbits in LOTR rang a familiar bell. I purchased the book and have since read it so many times that the spine is falling apart, but none of the pages are dog eared.

Other epic fantasy series to capture my attention have been Dune, The Magician, The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant and The Wheel of Time. I have also enjoyed reading the novels of Jackie Collins; the bitches and bastards, humour and relationships in her books have entertained millions.

And so I asked myself – what if I could massage the bitches and bastards and humour into a fantasy storyline? I would read that. The thought gave birth to the Sex, Blood and Glory series. I have enjoyed writing and reading it. The first book is complete, the second almost, and the third and fourth have storylines drafted. I hope you enjoy them too.

I live about an hour north of Sydney, Australia. I use Elijah Wingnut as my pen name because the idea of a fictitious world written by a fictitious author appeals to me.
