More About the Author

Marc Jones was born in 1970 to a family that regards books as being a staple of life. Having graduated from Swansea University with a degree in history it therefore made perfect sense for him to then get a job in radio. He has written for a range of financial magazines and made the jump over to writing fiction in 2013. He has so far specialised in writing alternate history, something that fascinates him.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 30 Mar 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a very well thought out and written alternate history of what happens if the Britannians (the inhabitants of Roman Britannia) discover the stirrup. It follows the career of Cato from the end of the first book through a campaign in Southern Scotland and its aftermath.
My only possible complaint is that it is too short but every word counts and there is no waffle unlike some 1000 page + stories.
There are two surprises in store when you read this and they are both worth it.
I've read the first volume several times and have thoroughly enjoyed it every time. I more than suspect that this will be the same.

5.0 out of 5 stars History with a twist 3 July 2014
By J. N. Bullock VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This tale of life in post Roman Britain is a cut above the average and Marc Jones has used his talents to weave a believable and enthralling adventure. The story is vividly told and the research is close to flawless.

My greatest complaint is that the two books should be just one and to sell them as two is a bit of a rip off but only a bit of one. Better editing and proof reading would get rid of the annoying errors that drag down this part of the publishing market.

Recommended to any one who enjoys a good page turner and if Cato 3 pops up I will be there.

A great second installment to an excellent yarn, interesting if slightly hasty ending, any more like this in the pipe line?

Really enjoyed this second in hopefully a long series of books. My only problem is that I didn't want the story to end
Many thanks Marc. Keep them coming.

4.0 out of 5 stars LETS HOPE THERE IS A THIRD VOLUME 15 July 2014
By hookie - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
A good second part to this story.I enjoyed the insight into a part of history I knew little about,in particular with the historical
characters mentioned.I think the description of the cavalry operations is good without being over the top.A good book for one
reading session and it does not require to much thought.
4.0 out of 5 stars Neck Breaking Epilouge 28 Jun 2014
By Lowell Montejo - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love this story for its advances and character development and what if, however, that epilouge was so knee jerk and introduces way too many characters I have no care for. It left a bitter taste in my mouth.

4.0 out of 5 stars Continues a great 'What If' 8 May 2014
By Arthur E Kieran - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I like the fact that I can't see exactly how the politics/nation-building plays out.

So far:
* England becoming a stand-alone nation - but will assist in 'smacking down barbarians".

* Gaul - May go the same way as England, or may not, based on the fact they are too close to the
'Diminished, but powerful', Roman Empire.

* Rome (dimminished but still powerful)
Can Rome get over: The Strongest soldier Rules !
Therefore any man who wants to be Emperor (or the power behind the Emperor) has to prove
he can beat anyone who approaches him in power - not matter how much weaker that makes
Come-On guys, focus on slamming the Barbarians and find a Political Solution so that the Roman Emperor
doesn't have to go to war with anyone (civilized) who develops any military power.

Plus I see some signs of commercial/economic power being mentioned in the story line.
I want more of that. Let's get some ships sailing and some traders trading.
3.0 out of 5 stars It's a fun read 18 April 2014
By Vincent G. Adornato - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The first volume had a unique aspect, it turned on the invention of the stirrup and strong leaders emerging when in reality they didn't. The 2nd volume follows the first and the alternative history develops. While the story moves on, the characters don't develop further and this book doesn't hold as much interest as the first. It's still fun to read and well worth the price, both for entertainment and to encourage an author who seems to have some real potential.
