The Wolf's Gold: Empire V by Anthony Riches

'A master of the genre' The Times

Fresh from their victory in Germania, Marcus Aquila and the Tungrians have been sent to Dacia, on the north-eastern edge of the Roman Empire, with the mission to safeguard a major source of imperial power.

The mines of Alburnus Major contain enough gold to pave the road to Rome. They would make a mighty prize for the marauding Sarmatae tribesmen who threaten the province, and the outnumbered auxiliaries are entrusted with their safety in the face of a barbarian invasion.

Beset by both the Sarmatian horde and more subtle threats offered by men who should be their comrades, the Tungrians must also come to terms with the danger posed by a new and unexpected enemy.

They will have to fight to the death to save the honour of the empire - and their own skins.

'Some authors are better historians than they are storytellers. Anthony Riches is brilliant at both.' Conn Iggulden

I was eagerly waiting for B&N to add Mr. Riches Empire series to their digital library. Having picked up the 1st novel in the series while on vacation in Canada... i was thriled to see his work finaly made it to the Nook. A faster read than Scarrow.... but well researched and engaging. If you are a fan of military history, Roman Britain, historic fiction, or enjoy action and suspense then i recommed Empire. When you devour the 1st novel... you will be eager to coue in the subsequent books. V
