1 Riches, Anthony Arrows of Fury - Empire Volume Two
London Hodder and Stoughton 2010 0340920335 / 9780340920336 Hard Cover Near Fine Near Fine 
A near Fine unmarked copy (Fine apart from a very small crease to the corner tips of two pages) with near Fine dustjacket which is not price clipped. Second impression. 342 pages. 1 map. The thrilling novel continues the story of Marcus Valerius Aquila, fugitive from the Rome of Emperor Commodus, and his part in the war for Hadrian's Wall. The Battle of the Lost Eagle saved Hadrian's Wall. but the new governor of Britannia must stamp out the rebellion of the northern tribes or risk losing the province. Rampaging south with sword and flame under the command of their murderous chieftain Calgus, they have stretched his forces to the limit. For Marcus - now simply Centurion Corvus of the 1st Tungrian cohort - the campaign has become doubly dangerous. As reinforcements flood into Britannia he is surrounded by new officers with no reason to protect him from the emperor's henchmen, and death could result from a careless word as easily as from an enemy spear. Worse, one of them is close on his heels. While training two centuries of Syrian archers to survive a barbarian charge and then take the fight back to their enemy, the new prefect of the 2nd Tungrians has discovered his secret, and only a miracle can save Marcus and the men who protect him from disgrace and death. Following on from 'Wounds of Honour', Anthony Riches combines meticulous research with brilliant storytelling to capture the authentic feel of what life was like for the Roman Army in a brutal war with a remorseless enemy.
