The unmissable conclusion to Tim Leach's critically acclaimed historical adventure series set in the Roman Empire.

180 AD. North of the Wall, Sarmatian warrior Kai and his adopted tribe, the Votadini, struggle for survival, cast into unfamiliar lands by Roman reprisals.

When news arrives that an old enemy is in charge of the Votadini's hated foes, a confederation of tribes known as the Painted People, and has roused them to action, Kai heads south towards the Wall, hoping to ally with the Romans against this resurgent threat.

Meanwhile, the Romans have heard tales of butchery and mayhem beyond the Wall. Lucius, Legate of the North, believes is is Kai and his allies who are responsible, and sends forth an expedition to capture his old comrade.

Can Kai and his loved ones survive the onslaught – or will the combined might of Rome and the hatred of their enemies spell the end for the warrior and his tribe?

The Hollow Throne is perfect for fans of Bernard Cornwell and Adrian Goldsworthy.

Reviews for Tim Leach:

PRAISE FOR TIM LEACH: 'Roman military adventure at its best. Leach's resurrection of a lost and misunderstood people serving Rome at the edge of the world ranks with the best historical fiction available today' Simon Turney, on The Iron Way. 'Brilliantly atmospheric, utterly compelling and beautifully written' Caroline Lea, on A Winter War. 'Tim Leach writes beautifully. This is gorgeous prose, immersing the reader in the trials of this cold, cold place at such a time of brutal crisis. It's lyrical and thoughtful' For Winter Nights. 'Superb... This is a thoughtful, literary take on a world that is more often depicted in a boy's adventure way. The focus in Leach's book is not on the fighting, but on the strange, inescapable logic that makes the fighting inevitable' The Times, Book of the Year, on Smile of the Wolf. 'A poetic, absorbing narrative with many of the same qualities as the medieval Icelandic sagas that it echoes and reimagines' Sunday Times, Book of the Year, on Smile of the Wolf. 'Smile of the Wolf bares its fangs from the first page. Like a medieval tapestry, the storytelling is rich with imagery. Readers will be lured spellbound into this lyrical and evocative Icelandic saga. It deserves huge success'

“Want more.....”

The 'A Winter War', 'The Iron Way' and finally 'The Hollow Way' has been a joy to read. So much so that I want another book to continue some storylines. Always found myself reading more...
