    MOBI Nick Brown #185; #185; The Siege PDF #180; siege pdf, The Siege PDF/EPUBCassius Corbulo is a poor warrior he is young and inexperienced As an imperial security service agent he expected to spend his service years behind a desk organising supplies To the surprise of him and the reader he is thrust into the prestigious role of Centurion His task is to organise the defence of Alauran a stronghold in the Syrian dessert and rein in its wayward defenders who have been leaderless for too long The problem is he’s straight out of officer training and has never fought in real combat nor has he expected ever to do so Consequently he has to act the part of an experienced warrior or the men would never follow him Suffice to say by posing as a centurion he has some big boots to fill Luckily for him he has one tool at his disposal his intelligence And he needs it too for the soldiers of the stronghold resent orders from such a young officer To make things worse a murder occurs in the heart of the stronghold castin

    MOBI Nick Brown #185; #185; The Siege PDF #180; siege pdf, 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 Queen 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

    MOBI Nick Brown #185; #185; The Siege PDF #180; siege pdf, 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 c

    MOBI Nick Brown #185; #185; The Siege PDF #180; siege pdf, The Siege PDF/EPUBI am going back in time by reading this one I was lucky enough to be sent the latest as it was at the time 'The Black Stone' which was actually number four in the series I’d seen the name and some of the covers before that but not got onto reading any But having been solidly impressed by TBS I’m making up for lost time by starting again at the beginning with ’The Siege'And maybe time travel is perhaps not at all a bad metaphor for me to use for this review As Nick Brown certainly has a knack for bringing the period the landscape and the characters to convincingly vivid life We’re back in 270 AD on the eastern edges of the Roman Empire and as with all the best books the story is a deceptively simple one The main character and of the subsequent novels of course is Cassius Corbulo He is just 19 as the book begins straight from officer training he is sent to command the Roman forces who find themsel

    MOBI Nick Brown #185; #185; The Siege PDF #180; siege pdf, The Siege PDF/EPUBCassias Corbulo is a fresh grain officer who has been dropped into the role of defending a key resource with a rag tag group of soldiers With a much larger contingent of the enemy on the way he must pull this group together to defend Rome’s interests and save his own lifeWith so many books set in Roman Britain that I have been reading lately it was nice to get a different picture of the vast Roman Empire Syria is such a completely foreign place Nick Brown did an excellent job of bringing the country to life and the trials of fighting in such a harsh and unforgiving environmentCassius is an interesting character He is in over his head he does not

    MOBI Nick Brown #185; #185; The Siege PDF #180; siege pdf, The Siege PDF/EPUB35 starsI liked the refreshing original setting of the novel the Romans in Syria at the time of the revolt of Queen Zenobia's Palmyrans the superb characterization especially Cassius Corbulo as a realistic and very human hero with some very well done character development and the great first half of the story from the introduction of Cassius till the organisation of the garrisoned troops In the second half of the book came the siege itself with a whole lot of battle scenes and my attention wandered somewhat The outcome with the praetorian was also quite predictableStill a good first book with a lot of potential for the sequels

    MOBI Nick Brown #185; #185; The Siege PDF #180; siege pdf, 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? There are the subtle parts of a new writer like will they be a writer of explosive action or slow burn deep facts or a mix of them both?With so many authors out there turning out great books it then means its down to the marketing and the cover artists to draw the eye and make you pick up the book and read the back coverWith Siege of Rome the cover is fantastic giving the reader the impression of action pace and history Some excellent back cover blurb to really rope the reader in so i was hooked and ready to part with my cashwas it a good idea?Yes is the simple answer the cover is actually slightly deceiving as the book is not just an all out action thriller it is a well paced well thought out story with a great plot with a complex multi faceted hero in the guise of Cassius Cor
