As Rome''s war with Carthage continues, two friends -- now on opposing sides -- confront each other in one of the most brutal sieges of all time. A new Hannibal novel by the Sunday Times bestselling author of The Forgotten Legion series.
     213 BC. Syracuse. Under the merciless Sicilian sun, a city is under siege.
     Outside the walls, a vast Roman army waits. Yet the city''s incredible defences -- designed by Archimedes -- mean that the city will not be easily taken. 
     A veteran of the bitter war since its beginning, Quintus is ready to give his life in the service of the Republic. But dangers face him from within his own ranks as well as from the enemy -- who include his former friend, the Carthaginian, Hanno. 
     Hanno has been sent by his general Hannibal to aid Syracuse in its fight against Rome. Pledged to bring death to all Romans, he is diverted from his mission by the discovery of Quintus'' sister Aurelia, a captive within the city.
     Two friends on opposing sides. A woman caught between them. They are about to meet in one of the most brutal sieges of all time.
     Who will survive?

About the Author

''History is more than facts on a page. It''s the sounds, the smells, the people, the passion. History should make you think: "I was there". My books are born from my obsession with Roman history. I''ve followed Spartacus''s trail across Italy. I''ve stood at Cannae and pictured Hannibal''s army meeting the massed legions of Rome. I''ve watched the sea lapping against the fortifications of Syracuse, besieged by the Romans for close to two years. Immerse yourself in these incredible stories and -- like me -- remind yourself why the legend of Rome endures.''

Editorial Reviews

"You feel the ground tremble beneath the phalanxes, hear the battle cries of the legions, smell the carnage of war." --Giles Christian

"A compulsive, relentless story, vividly recounted in muscular prose." --Daily Telegraph
