More About the Author

Kevin Ashman is the author of fifteen novels. He started writing in 2011 and immediately enjoyed significant success with his historical fiction books including the best-selling Roman Chronicles and highly ranked Medieval Sagas.

Always pushing the boundaries he found further success with the India Sommers Mysteries as well as three other stand-alone projects, Vampire, Savage Eden and the dystopian horror story, The Last Citadel.

Kevin was born and raised in Wales in the United Kingdom and now writes full time having been signed by a major publishing company. He is married with four grown children and enjoys cycling, swimming and watching rugby as his hobbies.

Forthcoming works include the highly anticipated 'Blood of Kings' series due to be released later in 2015. Links to all Kevin's books can be found on:

I really enjoyed this book. The plot worked well and the action was frequent and well done. It was as good as others I have read dealing with this period and better than novels from some authors who are better known.

However, the reason for 4 stars and not 5 was, as other reviewers have mentioned, the lapses in dialogue and authenticity. To have a 1st century Barbarian King say "It's Okay" was a bit naff. Another instance was when a senior Roman officer told his subordinate that he would hang for his betrayal, not a common means of punishment amongst the Roman legion according to other books I have read on the period. It was this lack of attention to detail that let down a well thought out and otherwise well written novel.

This is a well researched and well written book. I look out for unknown and new authors, largely because they can often surprise you with a cracking story and this is no exception. It is well composed and something I enjoyed reading over the weekend, couldn't put it down in fact. It also sets the seeds of the next book which I am looking forward to.

Kevin Ashman always presents a cracking story and always told from a uniquely different view which means he doesn't churn out the same old stuff you've read before. His stories have an historically correct basis but what he weaves into that is unique.

Again, Kevin Ashman more than delivers the goods. This is an absolutely riveting read and highly recommended. The only fault I have with Kevin Ashman is that he hasn't been writing for years and years and so there are not lots of his books waiting for me to read. Write, write, write please Kevin....I am waiting to buy and read.

It is always nice to find a new author, especially when they have written a fast paced novel like this one! This is not a period of history I am familiar with and was pleasantly surprised by the depth of the authors knowledge and research.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and cannot recommend it highly enough, if you love reading about military history with a cracking storyline this book is for you. I hope Mr Ashman writes many more such books!

After reading the many reviews as you do i decided it was worth a read, the price didn't hurt either. I now feel i have cheated the author as i would have happily paid more. I can only speak from my own point of view but i have found it an engrossing story, exactly what a fiction book should be really. And i really dont get some of the anal comments about this book, it delivers a fast paced story with good action and i really enjoyed it.

This book was incredible. I couldn't put it down. I particularly like the way the you get the views of both the Romans and the native people of Britain. You really get to know the characters well. The book is a joy to read and very easy to pick up and follow from start to finish. I will definitely be reading Kevin Ashman's other books available on kindle!

A cracking read, I read it in one go in one day as I found it the sort of story that you wanted to know what was over the next page all the time.
Kevin paints an excellent mental picture in your mind with his descriptions and really knows how to keep the pace up in a book.
Thoroughly recommended.

This is the first book I bought for the Kindle and it was well worth the price. As others have mentioned it mixes genuine historical characters with fictional ones. There are 2 stories that run separately and then meet up near to the end resulting in a brilliant ending. I've just purchased another Kevin Ashman book (Savage Eden)as a result of Roman and can't wait to read it.
