Anthony Riches

3 Reviews

Rated 0

Fiction, Historical adventure, Historical fiction

The action moves to Rome itself in the seventh novel in the Empire sequence, praised by authors including Conn Iggulden, Ben Kane and Manda Scott.

'A master of the genre' The Times

The seventh novel in Anthony Riches' acclaimed Empire sequence brings Marcus Aquila back to Rome, hunting the men who destroyed his family.

But the revenge he craves may cost him and those around him dearly.

The young centurion's urge to exact his own brutal justice upon the shadowy cabal of assassins who butchered his family means that he must face them on their own ground, risking his own death at their hands.

A senator, a gang boss, a praetorian officer and, deadliest of all, champion gladiator Mortiferum - the Death Bringer - lie in wait.

The knives are unsheathed, and ready for blood . . .

Praise for The Emperor's Knives: Empire VII

  • This is fast-paced and gripping "read-through-the-night" fiction, with marvellous characters and occasional moments of dark humour. Some authors are better historians than they are storytellers. Anthony Riches is brilliant at both. - Conn Iggulden

  • A damn fine read . . . fast-paced, action-packed. - Ben Kane

  • Stands head and shoulders above a crowded field . . . . real, live characters act out their battles on the northern borders with an accuracy of detail and depth of raw emotion that is a rare combination. - Manda Scott
