Warrior of Rome V: The Wolves of the North

Harry Sidebottom

The new blockbuster in the bestselling Warrior of Rome series.

AD263 - the Roman Empire is close to turmoil, as violent uprising threatens to shatter the fragile balance of power. In the north, the tribes are increasingly bold in their raids on the Imperium - their savagery unlike anything Rome has known before. Ballista must undertake his most treacherous journey yet - a covert attempt to turn the barbarians against each other. He must face the Heruli - the Eaters of Flesh, the Wolves of the North - the most brutal tribe of them all. As Ballista and his retinue make their journey, someone - or something - is hunting them, picking them off one by one, and leaving a trail of mutilated corpses and terror. Ballista is in a strange land, among strange people, but is it possible that the greatest threat may come from within his own familia?

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

The first four books in the Warrior of Rome series have sold approximately half a million copies in the UK and have been translated into 13 languages worlwide.
