4.0 out of 5 stars Top notch Roman Fiction, 28 April 2012
This review is from: The Leopard Sword: Empire IV (Empire series) (Hardcover)
I've enjoyed Anthony's books since he burst onto the seen a few years ago, they had a great combination of action, a familiar setting for me and added a cracking lead character who demonstrated both tenderness, naivety and the ability to fight when it came to it.

Add to this sharp prose, a great sense of pace which when backed with a writing style that's very easy to get into, you can't help but sit back and enjoy the adventure.

Here in the latest title there's more of the same with a villain that's the same level as Corvus, has a solid combat style which when accompanied with an almost mythical blade makes for a real challenge for our Centurion hero, almost as if he were a flip side of the same coin. Add to this the Tungarians' marching back to their homelands to help take some of the heat from our hero with a graphic change of scenery and fighting style and all in this book was a pure joy from start to finish. I really can't wait to see what Anthony comes up with next.
