Q: Is The
Emperor's Spy a sequel to the Boudica: Dreaming books?
A: Yes, and no. Yes, it's set in the same presumptive universe, inhabited by the same people and the same gods and some of the surviving characters from the Boudica books are central to the story. But, no, it's not an exploration of 'who we were and who we could be' in the way the Boudica books were. This is a thriller first and foremost, and its main characters, Sebastos Abdes Pantera, is a spy in Roman pay, for all that he has a past in Britain.
