this is a brilliantly scipted story with one hell of a plot. i feel really sorry for Harry though- and hope that Draco dies in a small shirmish irritaing evil boy that he is and that the blacks realizes their cruelty towards Harry and that sirry begs for forgivness though if this follow's the life and death of Julius Caesar than i guess Harry will either face the role of Julius' Mark Antony or become the Brutus he has every right in being. poor harry i weep for him- i have actually cried whilst reading this. hope he at least gets a semi- happy ending or at least acknowledgement from the blacks that he is truely a very gifted very damaged young man- oh and the ginny thing works really well- update soon as i can't seem to get this thing off my mind :)

I am appauled at myself for not checking my email this week. Finding a new story by you-and three chapters at that-was truly welcome. This tale is unique and deeply intriguing. I am always thrilled to see you pick up the pen. You latest, here, is no dissapointment. It's mature and thoughtful. The characters have changed, but still retain a hint of their canon selves. The likness to "Rome" is exciting and welcome. I perceive Harry as the Octavius to your Sirius Caesar. I look forward to where you lead us.

Fascinating! I love it!
| Wolfric chapter 3 . 8/26/2009
Great story. I was not sure that I would like this story as it sounded like it would concern itself with a great many things that would not interest me; however I find it fascinating and well written. If anything I would probably like to see a little more insight into Harry's thinking. Thank you for writing. W.

Man I have to say that I'm impressed! This is one of the best stories that I have ever read... The idea to put something like Rome, I assume that's what you did, in the Harry Potter fanfiction world is very, very interesting. I must also congratulate you to make Harry something like Machiavelli, it's just perfect. Congrats again, and I hope you update it soon...

Sirius isn't gonna end up like Ceaser is he?
| dairygirl chapter 3 . 8/25/2009
Okay, you sucked me into this story and I could not stop until I reached the end. I love how you have developed the plot and am interested to see how it all progresses. Your Draco cuts quite the figure and I love how intellectual Harry is. Who gets the girl? I am not sure. I look forward to more of your fascinating story.

I usually avoid dark/gloomy stories, but I tend to make an exception with your stores (The Greatest Trial was brilliantly written).
I can clearly see the amount of thought you've put into this story - politics, action, intrigue...it's got it all. Not too happy about the Harry/Ginny pairing but it's a minor irritant; as you said romance is not the central theme here. Wish Harry and Sirius were closer but I guess in this kind of plot it's not meant to be.
I do have a doubt though. What happened to Harry's inheritance? You mention that Sirius takes care of the Black and Malfoy fortunes but does Harry have control over his inherited wealth?
| Lord of the Trees chapter 3 . 8/24/2009
Well, just finished reading the entire story. So far I'm quite impressed. I thoroughly enjoyed the political aspects of the story and the way in which they parallel those of ancient Rome. Characterisation was a bit rushed, but I can see that this is largely plot driven so it is excusable. My main problem with the story is the dialogue. It feels awkward and antiquated. Is this meant to reflect the formality of the wizarding world? Another issue was the 50 man army. Aren't these numbers unrealistic considering that the population of wizarding Britain is a few thousand at most (I'm fairly sure Rowling said that)? Overall, an interesting story and I look forward to seeing where you take this. Will Sirius fall as Caesar did, leaving the path open for Harry to take power like Octavian, or will you follow a different route? Good work!

I can only say that I am supremely amazed... This is an incredibly well crafted and characterized story with a quick but measured pace. Seriously, I'm in awe of how much you've incorporated from philosophy to politics to romance and school drama. The only thing I'm waiting for now is to see how you handle Harry's future and I really hope you give him some glory cos he deserves it.
