One empire will rise Flamininus of Rome and Macedonian King Philip's battle-hardened armies are on the march towards their final, climactic encounter.   

The other must burn. The outcome will decide the fate of Greece. But, on opposite sides, legionary Felix and Phalanx soldier Demetrios have more pressing concerns: staying alive long enough to taste glory....

I returned this one, could not stand it.

I bought this based on the good reviews but I just got so irritated with it I returned it. In brief my issues are 1) a simple ( not in a good way) narrative. 2) whole stretches of narrative that I could not understand what the point was. 3) simple, and incorrect narrative of an attack on a defended wall.
A possibly unfair summary: compared to Sidebottoms novels, which are not perfect, this is a children’s book.

Excellent historical fiction

Great portrayal of historical characters and if you like battles this book has plenty of them with vivid detail. Steven Pacey does a great job of narrating. Definitely would recommend.

Fast paced exciting story!

I have spent the last few years reading history’s of Rome. I wanted to take a break from that interest. Still loving Roman History I thought that might explore historical novels. Wow did I catch the bug. Ben Kane hits the sweet spot for me. Steven Pacey is very good at reading . . . a performance really. I really enjoyed the series and I’m happy to recommend all of Mr. Kane’s work.

great book, highly recommend.

I bought the first book not knowing what I was getting into (not being familiar with the author) and by the end, I was hooked. The author does a great job of taking you to these places while also keeping the story moving at a good pace. I am interested in these characters and have appreciated how they have developed. I have really come to like Ben Kane's writing and will continue to listen to more of his books!

Steven Pacey is amazing, as always. Bringing books from the realm of reading into storytelling is a challenging skill and he is a true master. If you listen to the sample reading of books multiple times, really trying to Judge if you can listen to that narrator (like me), you can never go wrong if read by Pacey.

Well written follow up to Clash of Empires

I enjoyed the story line and the battle scenes. The author does a nice job of introducing the characters and developing them. You begin to look forward to reading how each character progresses in the story.

Loved it!

As with the first book, this audio book had me on the edge of my seat much of the time. Story and performance couldn't have been better, bringing me right there in time and place.
