Don't miss the next epic novel in the Eagles of the Empire series - TRAITORS OF ROME is out on 14th November 2019, and available for pre-order now! THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER The gripping and action-packed new adventure in Simon Scarrow's bestselling Eagles of the Empire series, not to be missed by readers of Conn Iggulden and Bernard Cornwell. It is AD 55. As trouble brews on the eastern fringes of the Roman Empire, Prefect Cato and Centurion Macro prepare for war... The wily Parthian Empire has invaded Roman-ruled Armenia, ousting King Rhadamistus. The King is ambitious and ruthless, but he is loyal to Rome. General Corbulo must restore him to power, while also readying the troops for war with Parthia. Corbulo welcomes new arrivals Cato and Macro, experienced soldiers who know how to knock into shape an undermanned unit of men ill-equipped for conflict. But Rhadamistus's brutality towards those who ousted him will spark an uprising which will test the bravery of the Roman army to the limit. While the enemy watches from over the border... Praise for Scarrow's bestselling novels: 'Blood, gore, political intrigue... A historical fiction thriller that'll have you reaching for your gladius' Daily Sport What readers are saying about THE BLOOD OF ROME: 'Yet another masterful story of the legions by Simon Scarrow' 'Well-crafted book incorporating fact and fiction. As usual, a great read. Simon Scarrow at his best again' 'Simon Scarrow is a master of storytelling and rip-roaring adventures. Totally enthralling'
