[1] Hadas is culturally a Jew, but since she joined the Temple of Isis, she has been considered a Gentile.

[2] Like Hadas, Julia is Jewish only by descent.

[3] A fourth Jew-to-Gentile.

[4] I could not find any historical information referring to the ages of Pontius and Claudia, so I set them for the purposes of this novel.

[5] Claudia has been referred to biblically and historically as “Claudia Procula”. It is unknown if she had a prenomen.

[6] Formerly “Gaia Paulina Severina”.

Faith Crutchfield: This book is a little too fast paced for me but was really good! The plot was interesting and different. I was happy I took the time to read it but wish more time had been taken to write more about the budding romance and relationship of the main characters.

Koko Shaw: Absolutely riveted. Could not stop reading.A little confused though. There wasn't a lot of build-up, shit just happened. The actual contact she had with the brothers in the story was limited, and I got the vibe of implied interaction, but idk. With all the things that happened to her, and the gap...

Chaitra Ramesh: It was a pretty neat story line with a slight deviation from the cliche characters, which I loved. The plot too was quite happening and not too corny.
