A.D. 255: The Roman Imperium is stretched to the breaking point, its authority and might challenged throughout the territories and along every border. One man is sent to marshal the defenses of a lonely city and to shore up the crumbling walls of a once indomitable symbol of Roman power, a man whose very name means war, a man called Ballista. So unfolds an epic drama--a story of empire, heroes, treachery, courage, and most of all, of brutal, bloody warfare.

I am left with a distinct feeling of ambivalence about this book. I have neither praise nor censure to bestow upon it. Which could be it's main issue in my eyes, it did not induce any emotion from me. Not to love or hate, not to recommend or malign it.

Harry Sidebottom shows off his research a little too much, but he definitely keeps you reading.

A tremendous read, fast moving and totally additive! Wonderfully realized characters and a action-filled tight plot. A sit-up-late read!
