    Who would have thought that Cassius would willingly accept a new mission Well if three men raided my house in the middle of the night and wounded my bodyguard in a very sensitive area I’d want to escape too Indeed someone is out to get Cassius so he accepts what he believes to be a nice easy mission to get away from his pursuers However his new mission isn’t easy; it is uite the opposite and he becomes dis

    Perhaps not the best one in the series so far I have got to say It felt like there were long time where it seemed as though nothing much happened with relevance to the mission Though when it did it than made up for it and is surely better than most And a great relief not to be staggering from one huge battle to anotherThe story

    Another job well done by Nick Brown This time he releases information about Indavara's past And it the end it looks like the cliffhanger is due to this past This book was different than the rest in that by the end the enemies were defeated but not killed or captured They cleverly escaped from Cassius This was a pretty cool twist even though we all love to see Indavara kick some ass he did plenty of this to others thro

The Emperors Silver Agent of Rome #5

E this and intense pressure from his superiors the young officer eventually closes in on the gangBut his enemies will do anything to protect their profits and Cassius and Indavara soon find themselves fighting not only for the emperor but for their very surviva Another of the Agent of Rome books which was a thoroughly good read The mix of characters is really interesting and engaging and as ever a really good plot or were there several I thought at the beginning that this one might be less exciting as the characters did but no it was just as gripping Downside The last two lines of the book mean that I now have to go straight on to the next one Not a problem really

CHARACTERS The Emperors Silver Agent of Rome #5

Still recovering from his previous assignment in Arabia imperial agent Cassius Corbulo has been spending most of his time and money on women and wine Unfortunately for him word of his achievements has reached the emperor Aurelian's deputy and he is sent north t Who would have thought that Cassius would willingly accept a new mission Well if three men raided my house in the middle of the night and wounded my bodyguard in a very sensitive area I d want to escape too Indeed someone is out to get Cassius so he accepts what he believes to be a nice easy mission to get away from his pursuers However his new mission isn t easy it is uite the opposite and he becomes distracted from his investigation as his mysterious assailants gradually catch up with him The result is a minor case of paranoia and an investigation that he would normally be able to solve with reluctant enthusiasm and ease A mission to escape Indeed he is sent to investigate the production of counterfeit coins which he does not take seriously at all He is just too distracted He treats the mission in the beginning as if it is unimportant and inconseuential thus he makes a massive mistake on the basis of some very flimsy evidence The result is a minor humiliation that could become a major one if his mission isn t brought to a speedy resolution His reputation could become seriously tarnished if he doesn t get himself together But the threat of his assailants lingers at the back of his mind so his mission takes a backseat as his priority becomes his own safety The result is a character that does not have the same drive he once had He lacks the enthusiasm he bore in the The Far Shore and the resilience he harboured in the The Siege But who can blame him He is in fear for his life He has made many potential enemies in his previous investigation and they may have finally caught up with him It s no wonder that he cannot focus on the current investigation that he is only utilizing as a means of escape Fantastic character dynamicsThe plot did not start as fast in this book as it did in others but it would be uite unrealistic if it did This really lends itself to the brilliant characterisation in this series Cassius had such a traumatic experience in the last book trying to recover The Black Stone that he is left in a state of unrest He just wants to drink wine and chase girls not silver whilst trying to protect himself from a mysterious hunter He no longer wants to risk his life for an ungracious Empire but is duty bound to do so Conseuently his enthusiasm is at an all time low and his reluctance at an all time high Cassius needs the help of his two friends than ever in this novel Cassius s bodyguard Indavara has become somewhat of a laughing point for this novel and it is for the right reasons The bodyguard has gets himself into some rather tight scrapes which makes for a amusing dynamic between the trio than the previous intelligence insults directed at Indavara Despite the personal crisis he has in this novel Cassius would have been died long ago without him so he owes him his life several times over In addition Simo s kindness and personal faith leads to some problematic encounters which almost danger the investigation itself However without his brilliant organisation skills Cassius would have struggled to unravel the tight web that leads to the coin counterfeiters The two characters create many problems but without their help Cassius would have completely failed this mission Overall this is another brilliant edition in the series The plot was not uite as fast in this one but that was a necessary facet for the characters to overcome their personal obstacles and develop further Indeed the dynamic between the three characters is why I enjoy this series so much and why I will continue to read it Moreover the ending page of this book really twisted everything around and will leave me in sustained suspense for the next year This definitely was the strongest ending in the series so far

Asked with smashing a counterfeiting gangCassius tracks the criminals to the city of Berytus where his investigations are hampered by civil unrest and uncooperative officials not to mention the personal problems of his servant Simo and bodyguard Indavara Despit Perhaps not the best one in the series so far I have got to say It felt like there were long time where it seemed as though nothing much happened with relevance to the mission Though when it did it than made up for it and is surely better than most And a great relief not to be staggering from one huge battle to anotherThe story is again a detective story a whodunnit set in the Roman Middle East 273AD Corbulo is once handed the hot potato mission this time to track down whoever is putting fake Roman money into the system The system is actually good because while I didn t think that fake Roman money was either a thing or a thing that would actually be a problem worth worrying about it was of course Like it is today It s about confidence in the system and the conseuences of that confidence being eroded or removed by uncertainty and mistrust And that s where Nick Browns books really come into their own By showing us life Roman life as it was a little further down the scale from the Emperors and Generals usually written about we can perhaps easily relate it to our own lives and struggles And see both that the Romans were a lot like us a lot further developed than people me usually would think for a people living 2000 years ago and very little has changedThe story is much of a team effort I felt this time out Simo and especially Indavara have increasingly important even pivotal roles to play Andthe whole thing hangs on an excellent to be continued type theme at the end there Great not to be neatly tied off great to have me wanting to get stuck into the next oneThe World s best book blog Speesh ReadsFacebook Speesh Reads
