4.0 out of 5 stars Good story- fascinating topic, 7 Aug. 2013

This review is from: Warrior of Rome VI: The Amber Road (Kindle Edition)
"The Amber Road" is the 6th title in Harry Sidebottom's "Warrior of Rome" series. it is set in the middle of the third century when the Roman empire was faced by invasion from without and mutinies leading to instability at the top, with Emperors coming and going with bewildering speed. Our hero Ballista, an Angle prince who was sent to Rome as a hostage and has risen to great prominence, is sent on a mission to his birthplace to win their support in the struggle of rival emperors. he faces danger from the Goths who have a blood feud with him, and he is hardly welcome in his old home where times have changed and new men have arisen. Sidebottom has improved as a writer as the series goes on. His characters are believable and multi-faceted. his prose can be a little pedestrian at times, but his description of places, people and things are a testimony to well researched material, thoughtfully presented. As a lover of Ancient History I find the story fascinating and the plot well worked. I await book 7 eagerly.
