Author Nick Brown wrote the “Agents of Rome Book Series” series of historical novels. The publication of the series began in 2011, when “The Seas” was released.
The series features an intelligence officer named Cassius Corbelo, who has completed his officer training for the first time. He is aided by Simo, his loyal servant, and Idvara, a former Gladiator bodyguard on various missions that he goes on.
The first book in the series is set in 270 AD. and it goes forward in time, although it doesn’t take long for the first four books.
Nick wanted Cassius to be unusual for a hero. He came to know that, during his investigation, into the Roman “Secret Service”, all he knew was that he was a reluctant hero rather than a perfect promise.
“The Seas” is the first novel in the “Agent of Rome” series, released in 2011. The year 270 AD it is. Now the weakened kingdom faces a desperate threat: Queen Zenobia of Pulmaira turns an army trained by the Romans against each of their former masters and destroys the invincible armies.
Agents of Rome Book Series
Egypt, Arabia and Palestine have fallen and now the capital of Syria, Antioch, is exposed.
Cassius Corbulo is assigned a field assignment to round up some of the wounded legionnaires, but some urgent new orders suggest they replace first. He is the only Roman officer classified for the Palimarian advance.
He has to command the Aluran fortress, the last fortress the Romans take over, and hold it against the enemy until reinforcements can help.
Cassius sees the things in Aluran that would kill a veteran veteran, let alone a nineteen-year-old boy who has no experience in warfare. Only a scattering of divided and democratic legionaries remains and some are supported by sinister Syrian auxiliaries as well as drunken Praetorian guards.
With Polymaren arriving in just a few days, Cassius must find a way to find the courage, discipline, and skill to save Alauran, organize the garrison, and secure Rome’s eastern border.
Cassius jumps on the course, initiates fear and uncertainty about his career options, and gains more experience. The author gets right into the story and the action without having to bother with setting the scene. The climactic and siege battles were very exciting and the pace of the entire novel is very remarkable.
“The Imperial Banner” is the second novel in the “Agent of Rome” series, released in 2012. The year 272 AD. it is. The Roman Emperor Aurelian defeats Queen Xenobia and the platoon’s rebellion fails, but now there are few black forces threatening a fragile peace.
