    • This series is set at such an interesting time, during the reign of Constantine. Action, battles and emotional conflict compete for your attention.


    • Aurelius Castus' story, set against the background of Emperor Constantine's Empire, keeps getting better and drawing me in more and more. I was completely engrossed in the pages; in fact I read it two times running. This novel dealt with Constantine's civil war with Licinius for eventual control of the empire and Constantine's eventual victory; Castus, as one of the main commanders, had a big part to play. Also, there was [unknowing, not intentional] treachery and betrayal on the part of the Cae [...]



    • This is the fifth and presumably final installment (there's nowhere left to take the characters,so it has to be) in the Twilight of Empire series and it's a shame to see it end. Ian Ross is another in a line of outstanding writers from the UK who have chosen to tackle the days of the Roman Empire, a subject which American writers seem to steer clear of for some reason, but that's OK since it would be hard for them to top the efforts from such outstanding writers as Ben Kane and Ross.It's difficu [...]


    • Book 5 of the twilight of empire series and it might just be the best of the lot! Aurelius Castus is such a great character, loveable and endearing, you can’t help but root for him in every book!Constantine himself is depicted brilliantly.

    • c2017 (1) FWFTB: Constantine, Crispus, torture, honour, survival. Another superb outing for Castus but a very tangled web indeed. I knew what was going to happen but that didn't ruin the enjoyment of the book because the characters and world are so well drawn. Constantine has a few years left in him so what is Castus going to get up to now. Although, his faithful band of cohorts are diminished. Definitely recommended to the normal crew.
