272 AD

The Roman Emperor Aurelian has defeated Queen Zenobia and crushed the Palmyran revolt.

Faridun's Banner, hallowed battle standard of the Persian Empire, has fallen into Roman hands and is to be returned to the Persians as part of a historic peace treaty. But on the eve of the signing the banner goes missing.

Recalled to Syria, imperial agent Cassius Corbulo is charged with recovering the flag. Accompanied by his faithful servant Simo and ex-gladiator bodyguard Indavara, Cassius must journey across the dangerous wastes of Syria to the equally perilous streets of Antioch. He and his companions face ruthless brigands, mysterious cults, merciless assassins and intrigue at every turn.

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... 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 *
