Simon Scarrow is the internationally bestselling author of the Roman Legion series. He was educated at the University of East Anglia and was a history professor before becoming a full-time writer.
A riveting novel enhanced with accurate historical detail deftly interwoven into a superbly crafted story of the Rome Empire. Very highly recommended and entertaining reading. Scarrow manages to summon up all the glory and the gore that characterized life in the Roman legions. Outstanding . . . a new master of the genre. Scarrow again provides a vivid sense of history and believable scenes of maritime action. His righteous but flawed protagonists are winning heroes. All the hallmarks of Bernard Cornwell at his best. Rollicking good fun. I really don't need this kind of competition.--Bernard Cornwell, Praise for Simon Scarrow's Roman Legion series A combustible concoction of intrigue, treachery, and violence . . . Scarrow's combat is brutal and sanguinary; his imperial politics are almost as sharp. A macho, all-action book . . . if there's a battle [you'll] be in the thick of it, and the fact that you're also getting a few modules worth of ancient history is a bonus.
