    PDF The Siege PDF Ç í ar1web.co siege kindle, The Siege PDF/EPUBWhat stood out for me was the character growth of Cassius Corbulo the young sensitive inexperienced Security man leading the defense of a small garrison of Romans and Syrians pitted against an overwhelming force of ueen Zenobia's Palmyrans 270 AD The siege and climactic battle were very exciting and compare favorably with battle scenes in other novels I'm very happy the author did not feel compelled to insert love interest which to me would have been out of place here I'm sure as the series progresses though Cassius will meet some attractive young ladiesThis novel is a keeper and I hope to read of this series

    PDF The Siege PDF Ç í ar1web.co siege kindle, The Siege PDF/EPUBI got rather excited by the idea of this book when I saw it an actionadventure about a secret agent traveling to exotic locations where he faces off against outlandish villains for the benefit of king and country What? No not James Bond It’s some Roman called Corbulo Cassius CorbuloActually the book isn’t nearly as much Bond in a toga as I had expected Cassius is young and inexperienced and while he is a secret agent frumentarius he mainly operates as a common soldier The Palmyrans are coming and he needs to assume control of a fortress since there’s literally no one else in the area who can see to its defense As such the book is far of a knockoff of Harry Sidebottom’s Fire in the East the first of the Warrior of Rome books which also concerned a soldier sent to assume command of a Syrian fortress in that case a whole city and defend it agai

    PDF The Siege PDF Ç í ar1web.co siege kindle, The Siege PDF/EPUBWhen ever you get a new debut author in a genre its potentially a mixed blessing could this be a new giant of the genre? could he she be a turkey?
