Praise for Conn Iggulden and his books: 'Great fun ! the great events and breathtaking brutality of the times are brought lavishly to life.' GUARDIAN 'A brilliant story - I wish I'd written it. A novel of vivid characters, stunning action and unrelenting pace. It really is a terrific read.' BERNARD CORNWELL 'Stunning. Words like "brilliant", "sumptuous" and "enchanting" jostle to be used but scarcely convey the way Iggulden brings the tale to life ! exhilarating.' Los Angeles Times
