The Emperor's Knives: Empire VII

The seventh novel in Anthony Riches' acclaimed Empire sequence brings Marcus Aquila back to Rome, hunting the men who destroyed his family. But the revenge he craves may cost him and those around him dearly. The young centurion's urge to exact his own brutal justice upon the shadowy cabal of assassins who butchered his family means that he must face them on their own ground, risking his own death at their hands. A senator, a gang boss, a praetorian officer and, deadliest of all, champion gladiator Mortiferum - the Death Bringer - lie in wait.

    Story
    "The roman sword is double edged and cuts both ways"
    If you could sum up The Emperor's Knives: Empire VII in three words, what would they be?

    Duty and destiny weave a deadly game in the streets of Rome.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The unexpected twists and turns as ememies become freinds and freinds become enemies.


    What does Saul Reichlin bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    Saul brings the atmosphere and characters to life capturing the sounds and smells of Imperial Rome.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes but I had to ration myself to prolong the enjoyment.

    Story
    "Magnificent Series, Superb Narration"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Emperor's Knives: Empire VII to be better than the print version?

    I focussed mainly on the audio versions of most of the series. Since book1 is only available on Kindle, I can say that I enjoyed reading it but found the audio versions of book2 and beyond better. Saul Reichlin is an outstanding narrator


    What did you like best about this story?

    This is a review of the first 7 books (book one is kindle only). Providing one can suspend disbelief at the number of people willing to risk death to support our protagonist, Anthony has written a superb, well researched Swords & Sandals series. Storyline, Characterisation, World building are all good with the description and sense of fighting and battle outstanding


    What about Saul Reichlin’s performance did you like?

    Throughout the series Saul has been an outstanding narrator. Excellent voices, good characterisation and a good pace. Great contrast between the "ordinary" phases of the book and the more exciting ones too


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I found book 6 of the series to be the most moving, then this one. That said, I don't think that the author is really aiming in that direction


    Any additional comments?

    I will read further books in the series when they become available. I will also make a point of looking for other books narrated by Saul Reichlin
