Ben Kane comes to Ely for the first time with the second book in his gripping trilogy, Eagles of Rome. One of the most exciting historical novelists around, Ben has established his reputation with a combination of masterly story-telling and sound historical detail. Hunting with Eagles tells of the battle-scarred Centurion Tullis, still hell-bent on revenge five years after the annihilation of three legions in the wilds of Germania.
Ben is joined by Ely regular, the best-selling Harry Sidebottom. The third book in Harry’s epic series set in third century Rome is Fire and Sword; a dramatic tale of murder, coup, counter-rebellions and civil war. Filled with intrigue, betrayal and bloody battle, Fire & Sword creates a magnificent world built on brutality and political games, where no one is safe from retribution – not even those who dare to rule.
Join these two masters of their genre as they explore not only the might of Rome itself, but also the methods and impulses that underpin historical fiction.
