Publisher's Summary

As Rome's war with Carthage continues, two friends - now on opposing sides - confront each other in one of the most brutal sieges of all time. A new Hannibal novel by the Sunday Times best-selling author of The Forgotten Legion series.

213 BC, Syracuse: Under the merciless Sicilian sun, a city is at war. Outside the walls, a vast Roman army waits. Yet the city’s incredible defences, designed by Archimedes, mean that Syracuse will not be taken easily. A veteran of the bitter war since its beginning, Quintus is ready to give his life in the service of the Republic. But dangers face him from within his own ranks as well as from the enemy - who include his former friend, the Carthaginian Hanno.

Hanno has been sent by his general Hannibal to aid Syracuse in its fight against Rome. Pledged to bring death to all Romans, he is diverted from his mission by the discovery of Quintus’ sister Aurelia, a captive within the city.

Two friends on opposing sides. A woman caught between them. They are about to meet in one of the most brutal sieges of all time.Who will survive?

    "An incredible book by and incredible author"
    Would you listen to Hannibal: Clouds of War again? Why?

    This book has so much depth and intimacy, it is more than the classic death and and destruction found lots of historical fiction. This book, the third in the series, forms genuine connections between the lead characters and the reader during their adventures. This really is a book I simply could not put down.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    During the series you come across many strong characters, but if I had to pick Corax would be my man. He embodys Rome, he is brutal yet he is kind fair and consistently a character to be admired.


    Which scene did you most enjoy?

    The final chapter. Just wait.


    Any additional comments?

    Remember this is the third book, and this is not a series you will want to start half way through!
