” Isn’t it amazing how smart mothers are? We overlook this growing up, rebel against them even. But time changes that. Well, it did with me. I remember my mother saying, “Times change. People don’t.” And mom was right..”

J.F. Ridgley Reader Reviews

Reading from the flyover states

Author Ridgley re-creates a compelling ancient Rome that draws you in and takes you for a roller-coaster ride through a part of history we’re so fortunate to have missed…a part where women are rarely more than possessions for bartering. This is a story of gallantry and love that keeps you turning the pages. A most enjoyable read with impressive historic accuracy.

A great read beginning to end. I couldn’t put it down. Villains that you hate and hero’s that you can’t help loving.

I love everything Ancient Rome and Vows of Revenge was a great read. The characters were well developed and the story contained great historical detail coupled with vivid settings and a few nice twists. After you finish the book, make sure to read the notes at the end – it’s a nice way to wrap up the story for those that have questions about the behavior or motives of the characters.

Extremely well written with an exciting and intricate storyline. Some of the language was modern and, likely not, period accurate but did not detract from the pleasure of the book! Looking for more from this author.

The best book I’ve read all year! The literary world needs J F Ridgley! I knew this book would probably be good after reading a few short stories from Ridgley but I didn’t know just how good. How good? Damn good! Get it now, good. This book is like a feast. I would LOVE to see it adapted for the big screen. Epic, epic, epic. Can’t wait for the author’s next novel.
