The Veiled Assassin PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Veiled Assassin free pdf The first volume of a thrilling espionage adventure series unlike all others-with the unique setting of Late Roman North Africa in 347 A.D. among religious terrorists. The Circumcellions are suicidal extremists determined to uproot the centuries-old Roman army occupation of the Numidian desert and the official Christian church it now defends. Bodyguard-slave Marcus has only one mission-to spy his way to freedom-but has he bargained on betrayal by the man he respects more than any other? Meticulously researched, fast-paced, and well-plotted, 'A Veiled Assassin' introduces the Embers of Empire series that carries Marcus from Donatist fanatics to doomed Gallo-Roman army reformers to corrupt Antioch eunuch courtiers-all of them embers of a empire blindly smoldering towards extinction. 'Roman fiction' fans tiring of the Republic or Imperial periods are welcoming this new series with enthusiasm. A Veiled Assassin promises to rank Hunter alongside Steven Saylor, Robert Harris and Harry Sidebottom.
