Overview

In the fifth novel in Harry Sidebottom's acclaimed and bestselling Warrior of Rome historical fiction series, Ballista returns to undertake yet another epic mission — while the Roman Empire reels in chaos around him.

In AD 263, the Roman Empire is close to turmoil, violent uprising threatening to shatter the fragile balance of power. In the north, the tribes are increasingly bold in their raids on the Imperium. Ballista must undertake his most treacherous journey yet. He must face the Heruli — the Eaters of Flesh, the Wolves of the North — the most brutal tribe of them all, and try to turn them against one another. As Ballista and his retinue make their journey, someone — or something — is hunting them, picking them off one by one, and leaving a trail of mutilated corpses and terror. Ballista is in a strange land, among strange people, but is it possible that the greatest threat may come from within his own circle?

Renowned for their skilled blending of action and historical accuracy, Sidebottom's Warrior of Rome novels take the reader from the shouts of the battlefield to the whisperings of the emperor's inner circle. Rich in detail and punctuated by harrowing action, there's no better way to transport yourself back to the days of the Roman Empire.

    Highly recommend

    Great continuation of Sidebottom's Warrior of Rome series. If you enjoy reading Bernard Cornwell you will like these books as well. The battle sequences are very well written and the Lead Character is extremely likeable. I have read all of his books in this series so far and have thoroughly enjoyed every one of them.

    If you like a well written tale, are a lover of history, like reading about the Roman Empire, enjoy military fiction and or are looking for a good entry into any one of these areas then I think you will enjoy this (and any of the other) Warrior of Rome novel.

    You could read this as a standalone if you so chose but i recommend starting from the very beginning and beginning the journey across the empire with Ballista and his friends

    enjoy
