LoveReading Expert Review of War at the Edge of the World

A well-written and interesting account of the Romans in Britain to join the many. It begins a series, Twilight of Empire, set here in AD305 and features an old Roman campaigner, Aurelius Castus, who feels he’s been put out to grass in the inhospitable terrain of Hadrian’s Wall. Only the Picts want to talk and Castus gets to lead a dangerous mission across the border. Pacy and very readable if you’re a Roman addict, this is well worth a go.

War at the Edge of the World Synopsis

AN EMPIRE IN DECLINE. Centurion Aurelius Castus - once a soldier in the elite legions of the Danube - believes his glory days are over, as he finds himself in the cold, grey wastes of northern Britain, battling to protect an empire in decline. Here he must face the barbarians beyond Hadrian's Wall, in a mission riven with bloodshed and treachery. Can Castus keep his promise to a woman he has sworn to help? And is anything about this doomed enterprise what it seems? War at the Edge of the World is the epic first instalment in a sequence of novels set at the end of the Roman Empire, during the reign of the Emperor Constantine.
