He vows to take Trebizond and kill Gabras...Trebizond is a gripping work of historical adventure fiction which has been inspired by other historical novelists, including Robert Graves, Alfred Duggan and Rosemary Sutcliff. Author N J Holmes is most comparable to modern novelists like Ben Kane, Simon Scarrow and Harry Sidebottom.
