    1. In this conclusion to the Roman Mysteries series, Flavia and her friends return to Rome in AD 81 to learn of the death of Emperor Titus. The death occurred under mysterious circumstances, and many wonder if Titus truly died of natural causes, or if he was assassinated by one of his many enemies.This is the biggest mystery yet for Flavia, Jonathan, Nubia, and Lupus, but they are determined to solve it, hoping that doing so will clear their names with the new emperor, Domitian, who is Titus’s br [...]

    3. I discovered this series when I was in Year 4, so about seven years ago, when I picked up a random book in the mini library in the corner of the classroom and decided to read it. I did manage to get through it, after 3 months - I was an incredible slow reader when I was younger. Anyway, the book I picked up was 5th in this hugely successful series, and it got me hooked.I got my copy of this book a couple of years ago, knowing it was the last one in the series (17th) and haven't read it since, so [...]

    4. Lawrence really seems to lose her inspiration in the last few books of this series. The first fourteen were really great, but the last ones take off on a weird tangent and kind of mess things up. However, I really did love most of the series, so I'm definitely willing to give her another try when her next book comes out.

    5. Dieser letzte Band der "Roman Myteries" beginnt ungewöhnlich. Drei Jahre sind seit dem letzten Abenteuer vergangen und Falvia Gemina bereitet sich auf ihre Hochzeit vor!Während dieser letzten Vorbereitungen erzählt sie den Anwesenden von ihrem letzten Abenteuer, das dazu führte, dass sie ihr Leben als Detektivin aufgab.Das letzte Abenteuer beginnt an einem heißen Nachmittag in Ostia, am 13. September 81 nach Chistus.Falvia fasst S. 186 recht gut zusammen, wie dieses Dilemma zustande kam, in [...]

    6. Cover Blurb: The wolf on the cover doesn’t make much sense until you start reading the story itself. I like the color backdrop, but out of the many covers, it’s just not my favorite. No particular reason; it just isn’t.What I Liked: As always, I love Nubia’s character, and I liked how twisty-turny the mystery was. At times, I exclaimed in dismay when something was “revealed” because it, at first, seemed like a lame explanation. But then it turned out that that isn’t what happened a [...]

    7. I hated the last two books in the series. The first fourteen were some of the best I've ever read, but the last few weren't anywhere near as good. I think that the ending was rushed. It doesn't help it that the whole series takes place through about two years. Too much happened in the last book for it to make an impact on the reader and not sound like the author wrote herself into a corner, which I think she did. I thought that it was rather lame that pretty much everybody but Flavia became Chri [...]

    8. This final Roman Mystery is in a word . . . EPIC! The plot is well done and the characters are fully developed. I found Domitian to be a complete creep! I've been looking forward to this book for years. Actually, its not supposed to be out in Canada until August 1. I was walking through Chapters aimlessly and lo and behold! - there is Man from Pomegranate Street! I seized a copy and read the entire book within 30 minutes. I was so thrilled - I just about died when Floppy went after Flavia when s [...]

    9. An amazing book! A great finish, and I am not one bit disappointed. All the questions are answered in this book. I t has a great plot, twists, action, and more. Perfect ending, and sum up. And, the author managed to squeeze in a mystery while wrapping up the series. Great connections, that make you go "Aaah, I get it". I don't like how the author dropped so many characters, but at least she didn't leave any loose ends. The author dramatizes the ending very well by creating many choices, and desc [...]

    10. This is the 17th, and last, book of the series. The four friends are back in Italy, even though there's a reward for their capture. Emperor Titus has died suspiciously and they try to figure out who did it. All but one of the on-going plot threads in the series are resolved and it's a more or less happy ending for everyone. This was an excellent series, which reads like sections of a very long book. Although it's written for young people (probably 10-14), it really held this adult's interest. I' [...]

    11. I read The Prophet from Ephesus and this one in quick succession, the final two volumes in the 17-volume series. Lawrence manages to keep a certain excitement and suspense going, even while a large part of these last stories is concerned with tying up all the loose ends. I was wary of the Christian element of these tales when I began the series, but she always kept it real and appropriate to the period. The Christian element takes a notably larger place at the end here, but I still didn’t feel [...]

    12. Finished this last one in the series all too quickly I've waited so long to be done with this series, and now that I am, I'm very sad. I've enjoyed the adventures of Flavia entirely.I was particularly glad that Jonathan was absent from more than half the book, and of course, I was thrilled with the ending - Flavia marries the man of her dreams.It was fun to review all the Roman mythology, geography, history, etc which was so deftly woven throughout these books. Great job!

    13. [SPOILER WARNING] The Man from Pomegranate Street was such a perfect end to an amazing book series. It starts off with Flavia's wedding, and then goes into a flashback it's such a beautiful book, it's so well-written and makes you laugh at some points then want to burst into tears. The ending is so perfect, so right, but still unexpected. I can't believe she marries Floppy!

    14. This is the last book in the series of seventeen books where the characters come into danger with their lives, live in exile in Egypt, grow up and two very young characters get married. There is plenty of action in this book with journeys, rescues, relationship entanglements. Definitely worth a read.

    15. Bittersweet- so sad that the series is over, but the ending was good. So depressing.Can't put much because of spoilers. Still, while I know that Romans married younger, and I don't find it at all unreasonable for 10-13 year old girls to fall in love, I am still dubious about the idea of girls that young getting married.

    16. I've waited so long to finish this series, and now that I'm almost there, I'm very sad. I've enjoyed the adventures of Flavia, Lupus, Nubia, and Jonathan.I'll just say thisif Flavia doesn't marry Flaccus, I'll be SOME mad!

    17. A generally good ending to a very strong, enjoyable series. I only had one or two things I wanted explained or resolved further.

    18. True Rating: 4.5 stars.An excellent conclusion to the series. Exciting, suspenseful, and as always with one of these mysteries, steeped in the atmosphere of ancient Rome.

    19. TOO MANY FEELINGS Let's just say I reeeeally wouldn't mind if I was either Nubia or Flavia after reading that bookMy only regret? That I've finished the series :/

    20. I've read every book in the series since I was eight. I'm halfway through them for the fifth time. They are just so good!!!! I would definitely recommend reading them.
