About the book

After saving the emperor's life in Rome, Marcus and his comrades have been sent across the sea to the wealthy, corrupt Greek metropolis of Aegyptus, Alexandria. An unknown enemy has slaughtered the garrison of the Empire's last outpost before its border with the mysterious kingdom of Kush. Caravans can no longer reach the crucial Red Sea port of Berenike, from which the riches of the East flow towards Rome.

The Emperor's most trusted and most devious adviser has ordered Marcus's commander Scaurus and his trusted officers to the south. With orders that are tantamount to a suicide mission, and with only one slim hope of success.

Can a small force of highly trained legionaries restore the Empire's power in this remote desert no-man's-land, when faced by the fanatical army of Kush's iron-fisted ruler?

About the Author

Anthony Riches

Following a childhood which featured a deep interest in the military rooted in his father and grandfather’s service in the two world wars, Anthony Riches took a degree in Military Studies at Manchester University. Working for a succession of blue-chip companies over the next twenty-five years, he gravitated into business systems and change project management, and has worked as a freelance project manager in the UK and Europe, the USA, the Middle and Far East over the last two decade.

Over the same period, Riches gradually refined his ability to write fiction which led to the publication of his hugely popular Empire series, beginning with Wounds of Honour, the most recent being The Scorpions Strike. In addition, Anthony has also written the Centurions trilogy: The Betrayal, Onslaught and Retribution.
