The City(City of Victory)
AD 114: NICOPOLIS
In the depths of the desert on the empire's Eastern Frontier, the Roman army lays siege to the city of Nicopolis.
Estranged from his beloved Enica to keep her safe, centurion Flavius Ferox has secured his freedom after being framed once again. His next quest: to uncover traitors within the Roman ranks.
As the siege builds, widespread corruption seethes and soldiers are murdered in cold blood. Meanwhile, Ferox's investigation brings him closer and closer to the imperial court, and uncovers connections to Hadrian himself...
Gritty, gripping and profoundly authentic, The City is the second book in a brand new trilogy set in the Roman empire from bestselling historian Adrian Goldsworthy.
