Jonathan Clements is the author of many books on East Asian history, including biographies of emperors and empresses, statesmen and warriors, foreign visitors and outcast rebels.

Product Description

Review

"The novel nicely slots the story into the events of Blood and Sand... The action sequences are excellent, not an easy task especially when those reading will compare it to the visuals on the show." --Geek Mom

"From Capua to Neapolis, Spartacus: Swords & Ashes is a novel about villainy and heroism with some blood-soaked action thrown in for good measure." --TV Overmind

"A vastly entertaining book, with a colorful palette of characters to propel each scene forward. The pace never slacks, and when your thirst for blood begins to take hold, this book delivers." --The Daily Rotation

"J.M. Clements [is] an indefatigable and very talented hack who always delivers more than he needs to. This novel is a perfect example... Unlike most mass market paperbacks produced today, this is a book that can be re-read without falling apart. And thanks to Clements, you might very well want to re-read it." --Open Letters Monthly

"J.M. Clements manages to set a pace that captures most of the frenetic energy of the series." --Horror Talk

"Swords and Ashes also adds a mystery element to the Spartacus story line that fits extremely well and makes the book all that much more interesting." --8 Days a Geek

A very well written and apparently extensively researched story. It's set slightly apart from the early events in the first series of Starz's Spartacus with plot twists which draw you in and keep you guessing until the final page. Very enjoyable and a credit to the author.

Although many of the main characters from the series appear in the book, it doesnt really have the feel of the series. It was ok, but felt as though it should have been a much bigger book. I felt as though the story was rushed and didnt conclude satisfactorily. For the price i was expecting better. I also bought the other spartacus book, "Morituri" and that was far better. It felt exactly like the series and was a far more entertaining story.

I purchased this book between the end of the first series and release of the second and needed a Spartacus fix. It moves as smoothly as the studio, the script is spot on and it's a bit of fun. I must have read this in less than a day. I would reccomend it for any Spartacus fan or for anyone who wants a quick Roman read.

I had my doubts that a novel could do justice to the spectacular TV series which was visually amazing, but the author has captured the mood and characters very well. You can imagine the actors speaking the words on the page. I struggled to put the book down.

Follows the storyline of the tv series quite well, easy to imagine on the screen, accurate characters and their quirks, good little substory
