If you love Scarrow, adore Iggulden and of course admire Scott, then make sure you add Brown to your list. Great stuff.
Nick Brown has the craft of storytelling at his fingertips ... The Siege is a fast-paced and satisfying read
Praise for AGENT OF ROME: THE SIEGE: 'A masterful debut from a new author completely at home in this era'
Perfect pace, vivid combat sequences and superb characterisation
A thrilling and fascinating coming-of-age adventure
It's hard to avoid a comparison with the Empress of Roman crime, Lindsey Davis, but for me, Nick Brown holds his own in such exalted company.
Praise for AGENT OF ROME: THE IMPERIAL BANNER: 'The Imperial Banner is Roman adventure at its best... brutal action leavened by a cynical brand of military humour, history, mystery, romance and an almost tangible sense of cohesion and camaraderie amongst Cassius and his cohorts. It's a formula that works well in so Brown's capable hands... Cassius's next assignment can't come too soon!'
Brown has given this Roman military/adventure story a great twist in having Cassius hail from the secret service ranks ...The Siege is also a character study and offers a rare glimpse into 3rd century Rome and her occupation of Syria.
Once the action kicks off you won't be able to put it down.
Brown promises to be one of the most exciting sword-wielding writers in an ever-popular arena.
This entertaining adventure thrills from the outset but it also has much to say on that living, breathing monster of the Roman Empire - slavery.
A gripping addition to the [Agent of Rome] series.
