Warrior of Rome II: King of Kings

Harry Sidebottom

The second instalment of the momentous Warrior of Rome series. The first instalment, Fire in the East, has sold over 30,000 copies since publication in July and has been the only debut UK hardback fiction title to reach the top five in Bookscan this year.

AD256 - a battle-bloodied Ballista returns to the Roman imperial Palace at Antioch from the now ravaged city of Arete. Once a symbol of Rome's indomitable power - now fallen to the mercy of its Persian invaders ... Ballista quickly finds that treachery runs throughout the Empire - there are those who would rather see him dead than alive ... All the while, the Sassanid forces advance relentlessly on the Roman town of Circesium, and the sparks of Christian rebellion spread through the Imperium like wildfire. At the heart of this epic struggle is the rugged and charismatic Ballista, a man whose name itself means war, a man whose courage and loyalty will be put to ultimate test.

Dr Harry Sidebottom is a Fellow of St Benets Hall and lecturer at Lincoln College, Oxford - where he specializes in ancient warfare and classical art.
