The Warrior of Rome is back.

In AD 256, the specter of treachery hangs ominously over the Roman Empire. The sparks of Christian fervor have spread through the empire like wildfire, and the imperium is alive with the machinations of dangerous and powerful men. All the while, Sassanid forces press forward relentlessly along the eastern frontier. The battle-bloodied General Ballista returns to the imperial court from the fallen city of Arete only to find that there are those who would rather see him dead than alive. Ballista is soon caught in a sinister web of intrigue and religious fanaticism, and his courage and loyalty will be put to the ultimate test in the service of Rome and the emperor.

Renowned for their skilled blending of action and historical accuracy, Harry Sidebottom’s Warrior of Rome novels take listeners from the shouts of the battlefield to the whispering of the emperor’s inner circle.

    " It was ok. The outcome was to clear. The term "Roman Catholic" was not used at that time period. This was way before that time. "

    " Another good entry in the series. A little heavier on political intrigue rather than sheer military action. You can feel the decay of the Empire from within. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Matthew Hunter | 9/23/2013

    " It was alright, not as good as the first in the series. Story jumped around a bit too much. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Joanne Webb | 8/26/2013

    " While the plot is good and the characters quite believable, there's obviously been an awful lot of research carried out into the officials and rankings, which makes it hard to get to the storyline as it's all included on every page. Only a short way into it, so it may improve yet "
