Reviews

Praise for AGENT OF ROME: THE SIEGE
:
Agent of Rome is a masterful debut from a new author completely at home in this era; the writing is deft, the action swift and bloody and the characters believable and engaging. I look forward greatly to the next one.
Manda Scott
Once the action kicks off you won't be able to put it down.
Anthony Riches, author of the <i>Empire</i> series
'Brown's intelligent and exhilarating story excels in its perfect pace, vivid combat sequences and superb characterisation. The Siege delivers a thrilling coming-of-age adventure with an unlikely but likeable hero whose exploits are set to win an army of fans'
<i>Lancashire Evening Post</i>
'Brown promises to be one of the most exciting sword-wielding writers in an ever-popular arena. In this, his debut, his principal is a 19-year-old fresh-faced officer commanding 100 men in defence of a Syrian stronghold against a vastly superior force. There are echoes of Beau Geste in this death-or-glory stand.'
<i>The Oxford Times</i>
'The Siege is an excellent debut novel and delivers a thrilling and fascinating coming-of-age adventure'
Book Gazette
'Nick Brown has the craft of storytelling at his fingertips ... The Siege is a fast-paced and satisfying read'
