Reviews

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!'
<i>Lancashire Evening Post</i>
'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'
Russell Whitfield, author of <i>Gladiatrix</i>
'Brown has given this Roman military/adventure story a great twist in having Cassius hail from the secret service ranks ...<i>The Siege</i> is also a character study and offers a rare glimpse into 3rd century Rome and her occupation of Syria.'
