Product Description

Product Description

218 BC.

Hannibal Barca has conquered Saguntum and is preparing his army to lay siege on Rome.

But an arrogant Roman Senate is dismissive of the barbarian warrior - and refuses to take any steps to protect the city.

A young man, Gaius, has been brought up as part of the Wolves of Rome, one of the most powerful and feared legions of the Empire.

As the threat from Hannibal rises, the Wolves are given orders to prepare for battle.

Meanwhile, back in Rome, Gaius has found out that his childhood sweetheart, and the love of his life, Julia Varro, has been betrothed to Lucius Aemilius Paullus by her father to secure an important political alliance.

Gaius finds himself trapped between his duty - fighting to the death for the Republic - and his heart - fighting to secure Julia’s hand in marriage.

As the war ravages the nation, and Rome faces one crushing defeat after another from Hannibal’s invading barbarian horde ,Gaius stands to lose his love and his life…

Can he help lead the Wolves - and Rome - to victory against Hannibal?

Or does he stand to lose it all in the fight to secure the Empire?

Set during the events of the Second Punic War, circa 218 – 201 BC, ‘Wolves of Rome’ is a sweeping military epic set against the backdrop of one of the ancient world’s greatest conflicts – a war that would see the end of one nation and the rise of a new world super-power that would forever change the course of western civilization.

'Wolves of Rome combines epic story-telling with convincing historical detail' - Richard Foreman, best-selling author of 'Sword of Rome'.

'Historical adventure fiction at its very best' - Tom Kasey, best-selling author of 'The Dante Conspiracy'.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Entertaining Read 26 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
'Wolves of Rome' is a must read for anybody who would like to learn more about the lives and loves of the ancient Romans. The descriptive passages in this novel certainly provided a real life picture of what it must have been like to live in Rome during the times of the Punic Wars. So much so, that at times I felt as though I was walking alongside the soldiers as they crossed the mountains to face their enemies and an unknown fate.

It is an Epic saga of both bravery and honour and is enriched even more so by the lavish historical references to what has been considered one of the most brutal periods of ancient Rome.The distinctive style in which the author wrote this novel, managed to create a very visual dimension, that was almost tangible.

I also liked the way the author was able to sensitively weave in and around the challenges of the personal journey of Gaius, who was torn between his duty to his country and his ongoing love for Julia, his childhood sweetheart. The Author's knowledge of the everyday lives of the people living during this time was quite extensive and well observed.Even though I am not really a 'history buff' and don't know too much about this period, I still felt enthralled by this novel and would recommend it as a good entertaining read

4.0 out of 5 stars Wolves of Rome 29 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book follows Gaius who is made to leave his home at a young age to join The Wolves of Rome - a legion of warriors, known for their strength and skill, who are called upon to fight whenever Rome needs extra protection. Meanwhile Hannibal Barca is building an army ready to lay siege on Rome - a threat which the Senators are not taking seriously. Gaius finds himself caught up in a deadly battle to save the Empire from the outside threat.

There is also a touching love story running throughout the book. Gaius had to leave his childhood friend Julia behind when he left to train with Wolves, and when he returns ten years later romantic feelings between them have blossomed. However, she is already betrothed to another so he must fight for the hand of the one he loves...

I found Wolves of Rome very entertaining. Some of the battle scenes were perhaps slightly too long/ descriptive for me but generally I was hooked on the storyline.

I gave up to be honest. Story and details were good but the constant spelling mistakes were distracting and irritating. Spellchecker. Basics.

Easy to get into with characters gaining strength as the story unfolds. Only criticism is the ending which falls a bit flat.
