Hannibal: Enemy of Rome Summary

Hannibal: Enemy of Rome by Ben Kane

In the First Punic War, the Roman legions defeated and humiliated Carthage, their only serious rival for power in the Mediterranean. Now a brilliant young Carthaginian general, called Hannibal, is out for revenge. Caught up in the maelstrom are two young boys, Hanno, the son of a distinguished soldier and confidant of Hannibal, and Quintus, son of a Roman equestrian and landowner. A disastrous adventure will see Hanno sold into slavery and bought by Quintus' father. Although an unexpected friendship springs up between the two boys - and with Quintus' sister, Aurelia - the fortunes of the two warring empires once again separates them. They find themselves on opposite sides of the conflict and an alliance forged through slavery will be played out to its stunning conclusion in battle.

Hannibal: Enemy of Rome Reviews

"If you want a story that lives and breathes, characters that you genuinely care about and action that leaves you breathless, Ben Kane is your man ... You feel the ground tremble beneath the phalanxes, hear the battle cries of the legions, smell the carnage of war. You sense the sweeping tides of history that changed the world ... An epic tale, triumphantly told" Giles Kristian, author of the RAVEN series "Any book that creates a hole in your life when it ends can only be a very good thing" Bookbag
