Ian Ross has been researching and writing about the later Roman world and its army for over a decade. He spent a year in Italy, teaching English, but now lives in Bath. Visit his website: www.ianjamesross.com, or find him on twitter: @IanRossAuthor.
'Hugely exciting, the first in what promises to be a gripping sequence of books about a period in the history of Roman Britain that is often overlooked by novelists. His evocation of the dangerous borderland between the civilisation of Rome and the realms of the supposedly barbaric Picts is entirely convincing, and Catus [...] serves as an appealing hero. His further adventures are eagerly awaited' BBC History Magazine. 'Castus Aurelius bursts onto the hist-fict scene with a series panache rarely seen this early, leaving us in hope that he lives on for many more adventures (many, many, many more)' The Book Bag. 'An action-packed, steamroller of a novel from its opening pages. Aurelius Castus attracts trouble like a corpse attracts flies and he ensures that this is a breathless, exciting read. Ian Ross, pulling us behind him, dives headfirst into the uneasiness of late Roman Britain ... If you enjoy action-packed Roman military fiction, then you'll most certainly enjoy War at the Edge of the World' For Winter Nights. 'A thumping good read, well-crafted, atmospheric and throughly enjoyable ... Where's the next volume, please?' Ben Kane. 'Ian Ross blazes in the world of Empire and legions ... This is up there with Harry Sidebottom and Ben Kane' M.C. Scott. 'Hugely enjoyable. The author winds up tension into an explosion of fast-paced events' Conn Iggulden.
