The Republic Trilogy
With all the fire and passion of the ancient Romans, The Sword of Revenge follows in the epic footsteps of the Top Ten Bestseller The Pillars of Rome.
'One shall tame a mighty foe, the other strike to save Rome's fame, neither will achieve their aim. Look aloft if you dare, though what you fear cannot fly, both will face it before you die.'
Rome has lost its greatest warrior – for Aulus, the doom-laden prophecy of forty years earlier has come to pass. It is now left to Lucius to defy the oracle’s curse alone, and the corrupt and powerful senator leaves nothing to chance in his bid to survive. But one boy, alone in the world, holds the key to his fate, and the future of the Roman Empire.
Enjoy the final part of the Republic trilogy with The Gods of War.
ĎA rip-roaring page-turner with considerable depth. It gives a vivid, authentic flavour of those turbulent times, laced as it is with carefully-worked-in historical detail thatís informative without being intrusive. And the characters are engagingly three-dimensional, even the villains.íHistorical Novels Review
