The Empire Collection Volume II

The EMPIRE sequence continues with books IV-VI in Anthony Riches’ bestselling series, available in a page-turning collection, including The Leopard Sword, The Wolf’s Gold and The Eagle’s Vengeance.

The Leopard Sword

The Roman agents who nearly captured Marcus Aquila have been defeated by his friends. But to protect those friends from the wrath of the emperor, he must leave the province which has given him shelter. As centurion of the second Tungrians, he leads his men from Hadrian’s Wall to the Tungrians’ original home. There he finds a different world from the turbulent British frontier – but one with its own dangers. A bandit chieftain is robbing with impunity. And now he threatens to destabilize the whole northern frontier of the empire.

The Wolf’s Gold

Marcus Aquila and the Tungrians have been sent to Dacia with the mission to safeguard a major source of imperial power. The mines contain enough gold to pave the road to Rome. They would make a mighty prize for the Sarmatae tribesmen who threaten the province, and the outnumbered auxiliaries are entrusted with their safety in the face of an invasion. The Tungrians will have to fight to the death to save the honour of the empire – and themselves.

The Eagle’s Vengeance

The Tungrians return to Hadrian’s Wall to find chaos, with the legions overstretched, struggling to man the northern frontier. The Tungrians are sent into the northern wastes, where a lost symbol of imperial power of the Sixth Legion awaits them. Protected by an impassable swamp, the eagle of the Sixth legion must be recovered if the legion is to survive. Marcus and his men must penetrate the heart of the enemy’s strength, if they are to rescue the legion’s venerated standard. If successful their escape will be twice as perilous…

Reviews

This is fast-paced and gripping "read-through-the-night" fiction, with marvellous characters and occasional moments of dark humour. Some authors are better historians than they are storytellers. Anthony Riches is brilliant at both.
Conn Iggulden
A damn fine read . . . fast-paced, action-packed.
Ben Kane
Stands head and shoulders above a crowded field . . . . real, live characters act out their battles on the northern borders with an accuracy of detail and depth of raw emotion that is a rare combination.
