The Warrior of Rome is back.
In AD 256, the specter of treachery hangs ominously over the Roman Empire. The sparks of Christian fervor have spread through the empire like wildfire, and the imperium is alive with the machinations of dangerous and powerful men. All the while, Sassanid forces press forward relentlessly along the eastern frontier. The battle-bloodied General Ballista returns to the imperial court from the fallen city of Arete only to find that there are those who would rather see him dead than alive. Ballista is soon caught in a sinister web of intrigue and religious fanaticism, and his courage and loyalty will be put to the ultimate test in the service of Rome and the emperor.
Renowned for their skilled blending of action and historical accuracy, Harry Sidebottom’s Warrior of Rome novels take listeners from the shouts of the battlefield to the whispering of the emperor’s inner circle.

Great book, Terrible narrator
While the book in itself is extremely well written in both content and literary usage, the narrator is absolutely horrendous. Maintaining a monotone throughout the entire novel, he manages to make even a great writer like Harry Sidebottom seem boring and shallow.
