Battle For Rome

by Ian Ross

Part of the Twilight of Empire Series

Battle For Rome Synopsis

The Roman Empire is on the brink of civil war... Only Maxentius, tyrant of Rome, stands between the emperor Constantine and supreme power in the west. Aurelius Castus is now a tribune in Constantine's army. But great honour brings new challenges: Castus is tormented by suspicions that his young wife has been unfaithful. And as Constantine becomes increasingly devoted to Christianity, he is forced to ask himself whether he is backing the wrong man. The coming war will decide the fate of empire. But Castus's own battle will carry him much further...

Battle For Rome Press Reviews

'Ian imbues any situation with some wonderful twists, reinforcing that nothing in life (and therefore within these pages) is as simple as it seems ... a writing masterclass in adding research and factoids that help rather than hinder the pace' The Bookbag. 'Hugely enjoyable. The author winds up tension into an explosion of fast-paced events' Conn Iggulden. 'This is up there with Harry Sidebottom and Ben Kane' M.C. Scott. 'A thumping good read, well-crafted, atmospheric and thoroughly enjoyable. Where's the next volume, please?' Ben Kane.
