We are absolutely delighted to welcome back Harry Sidebottom to celebrate the publication of the latest in the Warriors of Rome series, The Amber Road. Harry’s brilliant combination of gripping storytelling and a keen eye for historical details make this series one of the greatest historical epics of recent years, and The Amber Road will not disappoint staunch fans or newcomers to his work. Ballista is once again caught up in politics, subterfuge and some seriously dangerous goings-on as he navigates a difficult return to his home and birthplace…Harry is a completely fascinating speaker, alternating between the scholarly rigour that gives us such a rich image of the Roman Empire in his writing and a wealth of wit and warmth as he lets us in on the secrets of the world of historical novel writing!
