Publisher's Summary

In the enthralling third volume of Empire, Anthony Riches takes the legions deep into north Britannia, where the survivors of the rebellion still hope for revenge.

The Romans have vanquished the rebel alliance, leaving Calgus, Lord of the Northern Tribes, the prisoner of the chieftains he once led. But the new Roman leader will not let them rest. He forms an audacious plan to capture Dinpaladyr, the Selgovaes' fortress of spears, and return it to the hands of a trusted ally.

Marcus Aquila - burning for revenge on an enemy army that has killed one of his best friends - is part of the select group of infantry chosen to go north with the Petriana cavalry and take the fort before the rebel army can reach it. He believes his disguise as Centurion Corvus of the 2nd Tungrians is still holding.

But he is just a few days ahead of two of the emperor's agents, sent from Rome to kill him. Pitiless assassins who know his real name, and too much about his friends.

All action with a great historical bent.

Blood and guts a little overplayed for my liking ,but a very good story. I can't wait to read the next one.

Quality book

Awesome book just the narration that is annoying , the accents for the characters are not consistent, Scottish sounding barbarians ? And all accents are different than the former books , other than that it's a pukka book

history to life

I'm running out of things to say about this series of books, characters like friends I care about, gut wrenching battles, gaudy humour of the barracks, even romance a rare commodity from this genre of writers. but the audible experience has been greatly enhanced by the narrator, whom I hope is reading the next book.
