A cracking read. In-depth characters and wreaks of good research. The story races along at a thumping pace - visceral battle scenes, full of surprises with a really believable hero and a treacherous villain.

Plenty of action in this Rome based fictional recreation of the life of a gladiator slave.

Heavily influenced by the movie Gladiator, and the recent Spartacus tv series, if you are looking some immersive violence with the stereotypical gaul vs roman backdrop then this is the book for you

I wasn't, really, expecting that much from this book and I've never heard of Nick Morris before. So it was pleasantly surprising to find that this book is engaging, well paced, historically authoritative and thoroughly enjoyable. It certainly doesn't feel like someone's first book. As a story, it's like an amalgam of the HBO TV series 'Spartacus: Blood & Sand' and the film 'Gladiator' so there's not too much original stuff here but the fine detail of the historical context is spot on and really transports the reader into the locations.

There was just one jar in the story for me; surprising given Mr Morris's impressive credentials as a martial artist. That was when the hero, having been speared in the chest by a hugely powerful man, grabs the spear shaft with one hand and manages to hold it so still that the beast of an opponent can neither drive the blade home nor pull it out. Hmmm.

Unfortunately, Mr Morris has been very ill served by the keyboard pixies at Kindle who have mangled the job of translating the text into fluent 'Kindle'. I lost count of the number of times 'worst' was used when 'worse' should have been. Mr Morris's fluidity of writing was jarred by the clumsy Kindle rendition. If I was NM I wouldn't bother complaining, I'd just go around there and rip off someone's head; it's a shame to waste all of that special forces experience.

If every author writes his first book about what he knows best, then I can see a history teacher, historical warfare buff and serious martial artist in War Raven. The authority shows. I just hope that Nick Morris can find another book in there somewhere because I would, certainly, buy it.

Nicholas Morris has created a hero in Guntram who stirs the imagination and is well worth another tale or two. The other main players fit very well into the story too. All in all it was a very good read.

Engrossing from the first to the last page. Great Story.
Will definately be reading any other books by this author and especially if they continue where this book ended.

A thoroughly enthralling read. Depicting the might of Rome and its blood lust of the arena. The description of the gladiators contests was riviting as was the description of Arminious betrayal of Rome. Interspersed with the story of Guntram and his life as gladiator and free German. Can't wait to read the next volume.
