Product Description

Review

He knows how to deliver a fast-paced story and his grasp of the period is impressively detailed—Mail on Sunday on THE TERROR OF CONSTANTINOPLE

It would be hard to over-praise this extraordinary series, a near-perfect blend of historical detail and atmosphere with the plot of a conspiracy thriller, vivid characters, high philosophy and vulgar comedy.—The Morning Star on THE SWORD OF DAMASCUS

Vivid characters, devious plotting and buckets of gore are enhanced by his unfamiliar choice of period. Nasty, fun and educational.—Daily Telegraph on THE TERROR OF CONSTANTINOPLE

'Blake's plotting is as brilliantly devious as the mind of his sardonic and very earthy hero. This is a story of villainy that reels you in from its prosaic opening through a series of death-defying thrills and spills.'—Lancashire Evening Post on THE SWORD OF DAMASCUS

'Fascinating to read, very well written, an intriguing plot and I enjoyed it very much.'—Derek Jacobi on CONSPIRACIES OF ROME

A rollicking and raunchy read . . . Anyone who enjoys their history with large dollops of action, sex, intrigue and, above all, fun will absolutely love this novel.—Historical Novels Review on THE TERROR OF CONSTANTINOPLE

Another Incredible Work By Blake Feb. 5 2013
By Don Sproat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The author's fifth book in the series continued to amaze and delight this reader and I cannot wait for the next installment! His main and supporting characters are wonderful and so well developed over this long a series that they are like old friends. Of course the same action, intrigue, and naughtiness permeate this book as in the first four. I encourage all persons interested in Roman Empire Era fiction to read the entire series. Kindle readers will be happy that the "Aleric" books are available in that format.
