Reviews

'Ian Ross has has taken an era of history that rarely sees treatment in fiction - the end of the reign of Constantine and the troubles surrounding the succession - and brought it gloriously to life' Simon Turney.
'Hugely enjoyable. The author winds up tension into an explosion of fast-paced events' Conn Iggulden.
'Ross is a splendid writer of adventure' Ruth Downie.
'A corking story, thoroughly exciting and with some of the best fighting sequences I've read in Roman military fiction. I'm such a fan of this series but The Mask of Command could well be the best so far' For Winter Nights.
'This tense, immersive novel is driven by the forceful yet always human Castus ... the best of a fine series, this also stands very well on its own' Sunday Express.
'With plenty of intrigue and bloody action, this is historical fiction at its rollicking best' Sunday Sport.
'Doesn't disappoint. Every maleficent twist and turn of Roman politico-military life is here together with Ian Ross' own brand of excitement and adventure making it a should-read' The Bookbag.
'As with this whole series the research is exemplary, the attention to detail is first class, and yet not thrust down the reader's neck, it's subtle and yet intricate, and the battles are a joy to read. Another absolute winner' Parmenion Books.
'What a cracker! ... Wonderful... A must for those interested in Roman history, especially of the late period, and a good read for book groups too. Fantastic' Nudge Book.
