'Praise the gods, Ferox returns in a novel of explosive action and
profound authenticity. No one knows the Roman army better than
Adrian Goldsworthy, and no one writes more convincing Roman
fiction' Harry Sidebottom.
'Adrian Goldsworthy undoubtedly knows his stuff' For Winters Nights.
'Goldsworthy really knows the past and makes it feel like you're living it' Weekend Sport.
'With Goldsworthy's academic background, the historical accuracy of the novel is unquestioned. More impressive are the quality of the narrative and the complexity of the characters. More of an adventure novel than the usual sword-and-sandals epic ... A hugely enjoyable read by a master of non-fiction turned deft hand at Roman historical fiction' Historical Novel Society.
