    PDF history books.co ð The Siege Kindle È 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 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

    PDF history books.co ð The Siege Kindle È 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 subseuent novels of course is Cassius Corbulo He is just 19 as the book begins straight from officer trainin
