“INSURRECTIO - a taut, fast-paced thriller and I enjoyed it enormously. Rome, guns and rebellion. Darkly gripping stuff.” – Conn Iggulden
Caius Tellus wants to seize power in Roma Nova and destroy a system that’s safeguarded its people for over fifteen centuries.
Aurelia Mitela, ex-Praetorian and chief imperial councillor, vows to stop him.
But Roma Nova in the early 1980s is paralysed by a ruler afraid to rule. Old laws are choking reform. Fear sparks riots only to be exploited by the charismatic leader of a rising nationalist movement.
Aurelia fights to combat increasing panic engulfing Roma Nova. Founded at the dusk of the old Roman Empire the tiny state now faces total meltdown.
But Caius is also on a personal vendetta – to destroy Aurelia herself.
Part political thriller, part deadly personal rivalry, INSURRECTIO is Roman fiction brought into the 20th century through an alternate history lens with a strong female protagonist with heart and courage leading the action. If you enjoy reading mystery books for women with plenty of twists, this is for you!
