Publisher's Summary

Ferocity, heroism, and savage bloodshed: the next gripping instalment in the Twilight of Empire series. 

When the simmering conflict between Rome and Persia threatens once again to ignite into open war, there is only one man the Emperor Constantine can trust to hold the eastern frontier. Aurelius Castus, retired general of the empire. When the summons comes to command an army once more, he obeys with a heavy heart. Is he still a fearsome fighting machine? Will his young, ambitious officers respect and follow a great soldier of former days? When tragedy strikes, Castus must race to defend the last bulwark standing against the might of Persia. 

In the pitiless heat of the Syrian desert, engulfed by whirling sandstorms and facing a fearless, treacherous foe, Castus knows that the fight ahead will be the fiercest he has ever known.

Wow what a great read!

A fitting end to an incredible series. Bitter sweet.
Incredibly written. In true Ian Ross style, it’s action packed, with battles that get your heart racing and constant excitement of events.

Glad I discovered Ian’s work and cannot wait for his next book!

The best one yet!

Remarkable story, very ingenious plot and excellent narration by Jonathan Keeble. Can Castas make a comeback, or is the end of the series? I do look forward to more from Ian Ross!

So very grateful!

Thank you Mr Ross. A truly mesmerising and inspiring series from the first word to your last. And of course, to Mr Keeble too for an incredibly plausible and entertaining performance. Will miss these characters, these friends.

WOW

Absolutely brilliant story. From the first word of book 1 to the last word of this one, the author and narrator have woven a love story into the brutality of a dying empire. Intrigue and deception threading their way through the narrative. The humanity of the characters was epitomised by Diogenese' and Castus' relationship. A mix of sadness and joy at the end too. Superb

Wonderful Adventure - from the first to the last s

6 *
What exciting, nail biting action and outstanding narrative by Jonathan Keeble. I'm so sorry this is the last book in the series. What a wonderful series of six books. I thought that Simon Scarrow was unsurpassed but he now has a very fine peer in Ian Ross.

For those who have not yet started listening to this series by Ian Ross, I envy you.
