Product Description

Product Description

64 AD.

It has been over a century since Caesar first landed on Britain’s shores.

Now Rome has conquered the savage land, but civil unrest still prevails.

Quintus Liberius Verus, a newly assigned centurion to the Ninth Legion, has been sent from Judea to take up a new post in Britain.

A distinguished soldier, who rose from optio to centurian, achieving the prestigious rank of pilus prior for his work in the legion, he has decided he needs a change.

Where better than the edge of the world to start anew?

Britain, the mysterious island spoken of more in myth than reality, is still wild and untamed. Though Rome had come to these strange isles decades before – her legions spilling native blood, putting down revolts and building huge cities – the land is still savage and uncivilized.

When Verus arrives, he realises the situation in Britain is unstable. The natives are still resentful of their captors – the embers of war are burning deep below the surface.

Can Verus help keep the peace in these uncertain times?

Or will he be powerless to stop the Whispers of Rebellion?

HASH(0xa019e810) out of 5 stars This first in a series of stories about uprisings against ... Sept. 17 2014
By R3 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This first in a series of stories about uprisings against the Romans in Britain packs a lot of punch. It has humor, a budding romance, battles, and plenty of details about Roman soldiers and their manner of fighting against the "barbarians." The author appears to have done extensive research into the time period and portrays the civilization as it might have been--from the might of the Romans to the acceptance of some of the conquered peoples, while others fight for freedom. It was definitely worth the read.

HASH(0xa018b5dc) out of 5 stars Rome Unbound: Whispers of Rebellion Jan. 25 2015
By K. Kumar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Rome Unbound is a piece of historical fiction that takes place during the British rebellion of Rome. Before reading this book, I was not familiar with the British rebellion, but according to the author both the storyline and the main character, Verus, are a fictionalized accounts of this rebellion. What really impressed me about this story was the author's ability to bring to life these characters in a way where the reader understands the motivations behind their actions and is really immersed in the story. In some chapters, the story is told from the viewpoint of the Roman side and in other chapters the story is told from the rebellion side, and then eventually the two stories intersect.

Rome Unbound has a visceral feel at times and it comes across as authentic. I really enjoyed the battle scenes, which were told from both sides. The book weaved in parts about strategy and techniques used by the Roman side and rebellion side that added to my interest. Also, I liked the main character, Verus, and being able to understand his backstory and his role in the fighting the rebellion.

Rome Unbound is a short, enjoyable story and I would recommend it to people interested in the topic.

HASH(0xa0152b94) out of 5 stars more love! But overall very good Oct. 20 2014
By Tatyana - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
The book is well written and is overall intriguing, but has to my taste too much description of characters. I do understand you need all that in order to fully understand what's going on later, but it could be more intriguing in the beginning. My advice to the author with later books is to capture reader with some really intriguing scenes first and then go on telling a story. Also, more love! But overall very good!

HASH(0xa0286ed0) out of 5 stars Good Read Oct. 11 2014
By ladylawyer8650 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The author has a way with words. This was the first book in a series about the decline of Rome. The author made grammatical errors of the kind many authors of late seem to be determined to make. I liked the characters. Tiberius was around looking up and down at the protagonist to the delight of the soldiers standing nearby.

Thank you, Mr. Buckner, for a good read.

By Ingrid Muller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This book was a captivating reading, moving at thriller's pace while the main character was the hero you're used to watch solving other people's problems. Recommend the book to those who like historical adventure books and fiction.
