The Terror of Constantinople (Death of Rome Saga Book Two) Summary

The Terror of Constantinople (Death of Rome Saga Book Two) by Richard Blake

If you loved Gladiator and Spartacus, you'll love the second book in the DEATH OF ROME SAGA.

610 AD.
Invaded by Persians and barbarians, the Byzantine Empire is tearing itself apart in civil war. Phocas, the maniacally bloodthirsty Emperor, holds Constantinople by a reign of terror. The uninvaded provinces are turning one at a time to the usurper, Heraclius.

Just as the battle for the Empire approaches its climax, Aelric of England turns up in Constantinople. Blackmailed by the Papacy to leave off his career of lechery and market-rigging in Rome, he thinks his job is to gather texts for a semi-comprehensible dispute over the Nature of Christ. Only gradually does he realise he is a pawn in a much larger game.

The Terror of Constantinople (Death of Rome Saga Book Two) Reviews

Vivid characters, devious plotting and buckets of gore are enhanced by his unfamiliar choice of period. Nasty, fun and educational. * Daily Telegraph *
He knows how to deliver a fast-paced story and his grasp of the period is impressively detailed. * Mail on Sunday *
A rollicking and raunchy read . . . Anyone who enjoys their history with large dollops of action, sex, intrigue and, above all, fun will absolutely love this novel. * Historical Novels ReviewThe best historical novel I've ever read. -- L. Neil Smith on * Conspiracies of Rome: Death of Rome Saga Book One *
