Lest Darkness Fall - L. Sprague De Camp

Lest Darkness Fall is at times light and entertaining book with a touch of the 'Connecticut Yankee' thing going on.

A history professor ends up back in ancient Rome, and soon sets about using his knowledge to give people advice and hence build himself a power base. He gains influence, women, military strength, etc., while trying to help stave off the fall of the Roman Empire. Quite enjoyable.

3.5 out of 5
