Publisher's Summary

The 11th novel in Anthony Riches' best-selling Empire series takes Marcus Aquila and his most trusted allies to Egypt. 

After saving the emperor's life in Rome, Marcus and his comrades have been sent across the sea to the wealthy, corrupt Greek metropolis of Aegyptus, Alexandria. 

An unknown enemy has slaughtered the garrison of the empire's last outpost before its border with the mysterious kingdom of Kush. Caravans can no longer reach the crucial Red Sea port of Berenike, from which the riches of the East flow towards Rome. 

The emperor's most trusted and most devious adviser has ordered Marcus' commander Scaurus and his trusted officers to the south. With orders that are tantamount to a suicide mission and with only one slim hope of success. 

Can a small force of highly trained legionaries restore the empire's power in this remote desert no-man's-land, when faced by the fanatical army of Kush's iron-fisted ruler?

Keep them coming.

I have enjoyed this entire series. It often repeats itself however, there is most always an interesting tactic in play unknown until the end. I often laugh out loud at the banter and we surprising lose a key character unexpectedly. I look forward to more because there is some unfinished big time revenge yet to be leveled. I enjoy the reader I have a lot of hours listening and he has grown on me. I have listened to several more than once. I enjoy historical novels based in the last century BCE through third century CE. We know so little and I enjoy an honest effort to fill in the gaps I fine it just great fun. To take a fragment and build upon it and plug it into a storyline well the authors guess is as good as anybody’s. Because we just don’t know thus Historical Fiction.
