AD 273.

Obsessed by the solar religions of the east, the emperor Aurelian sets out to obtain every sacred object within his realm. But one - a mysterious rock said to channel the power of the sun god - lies beyond his reach. Warrior-priest Ilaha has captured the legendary stone and is using it to raise an army against Rome.

For Imperial agent Cassius Corbulo and ex-gladiator bodyguard Indavara, stopping him constitutes their greatest challenge yet. Assisted by a squad of undercover soldiers and a Saracen chieftain, they trek south across the deserts of Arabia, encountering sandstorms, murderous money-lenders and a ruthless German mercenary.

And when they finally reach Ilaha's mountain fortress, they face thousands of warriors who will give their lives to protect him ... and the black stone.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Praise for AGENT OF ROME: THE IMPERIAL BANNER:

'The Imperial Banner is Roman adventure at its best... brutal action leavened by a cynical brand of military humour, history, mystery, romance and an almost tangible sense of cohesion and camaraderie amongst Cassius and his cohorts. It's a formula that works well in so Brown's capable hands... Cassius's next assignment can't come too soon!'

* Lancashire Evening Post *
'If you love Scarrow, adore Iggulden and of course admire Scott, then make sure you add Brown to your list. Great stuff.' * Falcata Times *

Praise for AGENT OF ROME: THE SIEGE:

'A masterful debut from a new author completely at home in this era'

* Manda Scott *
'Once the action kicks off you won't be able to put it down.' * Anthony Riches, author of the Empire series *
'Perfect pace, vivid combat sequences and superb characterisation' * Lancashire Evening Post *
'Brown promises to be one of the most exciting sword-wielding writers in an ever-popular arena.' * The Oxford Times *
'A thrilling and fascinating coming-of-age adventure' * Book Gazette *
'Nick Brown has the craft of storytelling at his fingertips ... The Siege is a fast-paced and satisfying read' * Russell Whitfield, author of Gladiatrix *
'Brown has given this Roman military/adventure story a great twist in having Cassius hail from the secret service ranks ...The Siege is also a character study and offers a rare glimpse into 3rd century Rome and her occupation of Syria.' * Historical Novels Review *
