Join these two masters of the historical fiction genre, Ben Kane and Harry Sidebottom,  as they explore not only the might of Rome itself, but also the methods and impulses that underpin historical fiction.

The Sunday Times bestseller, Ben Kane returns to Bath for The Falling Sword, the gripping follow-up to Clash of Empires. Fighting on opposing sides, Felix and Demetrios think they have survived the worst of the campaign. Reeling from his defeat at the hands of the Macedonians, Rome’s furious General Flamininus gathers his legions for the final strike on King Philip’s mighty phalanx. But between vicious infighting, unruly locals, and intense battle, both will be tested as the final showdown between two great civilisations begins . . .

Ben is joined by bestselling author Harry Sidebottom with The Lost Ten. Valens, a junior officer in the Roman Army, joins a crack squad of soldiers on a dangerous mission, but little does he know what’s in store for him. Deep in hostile territory, inexperienced Valens finds himself in charge. And as one by one his soldiers die or disappear, he begins to suspect that there is a traitor in their midst.
