Not a bad introduction to Casca (for me) but I am guessing there are stronger tales in the series. ( )

Casca is portrayed in this novel seeking the Second Coming and, hearing of new gods being worshipped in the Pacific Islands, leaves the railroad gangs of post-Civil War America and ends up on one island seeking Jesus. Of course he doesn't find him and instead becomes embroiled in the politics of the community, bedding a series of nubile girls and ascending the social ladder until he ends up as one of the most important persons in the village.

There are cannibal feasts and a couple of skirmishes but overall this is not a particularly gripping book. One problem is that the subject matter isn't eye-catching. Books written about Rome or World War II or the Mongol Hordes of Genghis Khan, for example, immediately grab the reader's attention, but a book on Polynesian island life? Not really. There is an interesting mention towards the beginning that Casca fought on the Confederate side in the US Civil War and this prompted the writing of Casca 26: Johnny Reb which came out in October 2007, but generally speaking this novel was flat, tepid and weak.
