About the Author
Born and raised in Queens, New York, Sam Barone graduated from Manhattan College with a BS degree. After a hitch in the Marine Corps, he entered the world of technology. In 1999, after thirty years developing software in management, Sam retired from Western Union International, as VP of International Systems. He moved to Scottsdale Arizona, to take up his second career as a writer. Seven years later, the author’s first Eskkar story, Dawn of Empire, was published in the USA and UK. It has since been released worldwide. Sam’s sixth book in the Eskkar saga, Clash of Empires, will be published in spring 2013. History and reading have always been two of Sam’s favorite interests, and considers himself more of a storyteller than a writer. “I write stories that I would enjoy reading, and it’s a true blessing that others have found these tales interesting, informative, and entertaining.” Sam and his wife Linda, and their two cats (Minga and Norton) enjoy life in beautiful Prescott Arizona. Sam’s books have been published in nine languages and he has over 200,000 readers. He receives correspondence from all over the world. Sam enjoys hearing from his readers, and invites them to visit www.sambarone.com

A great read.
My one complaint with the book is that it opens with one storyline which then leads immediately into a retrospective retelling of Sargon's early life, which forms the basis of the entire book. The last chapter / epilogue then returns to the original plot line which opened the book, but without having made any real progress.
I thoroughly enjoyed the book, but was left feeling that it was tangential to the Eskkar/Akkad storyline, as if the author became distracted after the first chapter and ended up writing a totally different book to the one intended, and only remembered in time for the epilogue.
This essentially means that the original storyline is not just undeveloped, but in fact it feels like the whole book is just a lead up to the next book, instead of simply being valued as a standalone story about Sargon. Unfortunately that has left me feeling like the first and last chapters were hastily tacked on to try and justify this book in the continuing series about Eskkar / Akkad, which is a shame as it's a good story on its own.
Sam Barone is a fantastic writer and keeps the characters strong and interesting through out the book with really exciting story lines. These books are about the warring tribes of the Steppes people who just took what they wanted from other tribes. I have sent Mr Barone a couple of E Mails to congratulate him on his work and both time he took the time to reply and thank me for reading his books. A true gentleman.

I started the book expecting more tales about Eskkar and Trella and pleasantly discovered the beginning of a new dynasty. Great story!Published on 4 Jan. 2014 by Amazon Customer

Another enjoyable read. I think every reader who is a parent will recognise a teenager developing individual characteristics, based on their experience. Read morePublished on 7 Oct. 2013 by Kev68uk
I read all the books in this series so far and consider Sam Barone one of the best authors, equal to Bernard CornwellPublished on 15 Aug. 2013 by RJA
I always treat my books carefully. Battle for Empire has been no exception. But my copy of the book fell into pieces - extremely irritating. Read morePublished on 5 Aug. 2013 by Carl Graff Hartmann
