The Encircling Sea Summary

The Encircling Sea by Adrian Goldsworthy

From bestselling historian Adrian Goldsworthy, a profoundly authentic, action-packed adventure set on the northern frontier of the Roman Empire.

AD 100: VINDOLANDA.
A FORT ON THE EDGE OF THE ROMAN WORLD.

Flavius Ferox, Briton turned Roman centurion, is charged with keeping Rome's empire safe. But from his base at the northern frontier of Britannia, he feels enemies closing in from all sides.

Ambitious leaders await the chance to carve out empires of their own. While men nearer at hand speak in whispers of war and the destruction of Rome.

And now more sinister threats are reaching Ferox's ears. Stories about the sea-dwelling men of the night, who have cursed the land and only come ashore to feast on men's flesh.

These are just rumours for now. But Ferox knows that rumours stem from truth. And that no one on this isle is safe from the great, encircling sea...

'An instant classic of the genre' HARRY SIDEBOTTOM.

'An authentic, enjoyable read' THE TIMES.

The Encircling Sea Reviews

'Praise the gods, Ferox returns in a novel of explosive action and profound authenticity. No one knows the Roman army better than Adrian Goldsworthy, and no one writes more convincing Roman fiction' Harry Sidebottom.
'Adrian Goldsworthy undoubtedly knows his stuff' For Winters Nights.
'Goldsworthy really knows the past and makes it feel like you're living it' Weekend Sport.
'With Goldsworthy's academic background, the historical accuracy of the novel is unquestioned. More impressive are the quality of the narrative and the complexity of the characters. More of an adventure novel than the usual sword-and-sandals epic ... A hugely enjoyable read by a master of non-fiction turned deft hand at Roman historical fiction' Historical Novel Society.
