A stirring adventure novel set amid the tumultuous clashes between the Roman and Carthaginian empires, battling for control of the Mediterranean, north Africa and Rome itself.

Atticus, the young Greek captain, is now a commander of the growing Roman navy, blockading a port near Tunis, when the Roman legions suffer terrible defeat by the triumphant Carthaginian army, spearheaded by the elephant charges. He and his ships escape together with the main body of the Roman fleet out manoeuvred by the more skilful Carthaginians and then caught and almost completely annihilated by a terrible storm.

Atticus and his crew are among the handful of survivors and being the messenger of this news to the Senta in Rome brings Atticus into political troubles, almost as stormy as the sea. He begins to feel not only that a greek will never be accepted by the Romans but also that the behaviour of many, north politicians and soldiers, is such that he is not sure that he wants to be a Roman.

Full of dramatic battles by land and sea, led by tremendous characters on both sides, MASTER OF ROME is a powerful novel, the third in this bestselling series by a born storyteller.

    " Like book one in the series I found this good, but not great. The second in the trilogy was the best in my opinion. "

    " Masters or Rome continues the Bernard Cornwell meets C. S. Forester during the Punic Wars blend of naval and class warfare. This is a fitting conclusion with all threads tied up; but not in a predictable manner. For fans of the first two this is a must read. "

    " Not too bad...makes fast & loose with some of the characterisations. Certainly no Colleen McCullough! "
