Pressestimmen

Praise for Iron & Rust: 'An amazing story of bloodlust, ruthless ambition and revenge' The Times Praise for Harry Sidebottom: 'Sidebottom's prose blazes with searing scholarship' THE TIMES 'Superior fiction, with depth, authenticity and a sense of place' TLS 'A storming triumph...wonderful fight scenes, deft literary touches and salty dialogue' DAILY TELEGRAPH 'Explosive action and knuckle-whitening drama' GUARDIAN 'Sidebottom knows how to keep readers hooked from first to last' DAILY EXPRESS Praise for the Warrior of Rome series: 'The point of the novel, however, is action, heroic deeds, and gore. The qualities a writer of such stories needs - imagination stimulated through the soles of his feet as he walks the scenes of his tale, and a sound knowledge of the period - are abundantly possessed by Sidebottom ... a gripping book' TLS 'The latest in this series of novels on Rome's Persian Wars, Lion of the Sun, is, like the first two, a book to keep you up well past your bedtime. It's all about war and killing; I loved it' EVENING STANDARD 'The lionisation of war makes my blood run cold, but Dr Harry Sidebottom's prose blazes with such searing scholarship that there is enormous enjoyment in this rumbustuous tale of the late Roman Empire ... Sidebottom treads in the footsteps of the greatest mimetic historian-storytellers of the 18th and 19th centuries. He makes you feel as though you are there' Bettany Hughes, THE TIMES 'Harry Sidebottom works on Rome's 3rd-century army the magic that Patrick O'Brian applied to Nelson's navy. He has the touch of an exceptionally gifted story-teller drawing on prodigious learning' Tim Severin, author of the Viking Trilogy

Kurzbeschreibung

From the bestselling author of WARRIOR OF ROME comes the first book in a new series set in third century Rome, a dramatic era of murder, coup, counter-rebellions and civil war.

In a single year six Emperors will lay claim to the Throne of the Caesars…

SPRING AD235

Dawn on the Rhine. A surprise attack and the brutal murder of the Emperor Alexander and his mother ends the Severan dynasty and shatters four decades of Roman certainty.

Military hero Maximinus Thrax is the first Caesar risen from the barracks. A simple man of steel and violence, he will fight for Rome.

The Senators praise the new Emperor with elaborate oratory, but will any of them accept a Caesar who was once a shepherd boy? And in the streets of the eternal city, others merely pray to escape imperial notice.

In the north, as the merciless war against the barbarians consumes men and treasure, rebellion and personal tragedy drive Maximinus to desperate extremes, bloody revenge and the borders of sanity.

Iron & Rust, the first book in a major new series, creates a world both sophisticated and brutal, yet firmly rooted in history; a world of intrigue, murder, passion and war, a world where men will kill to sit on the Throne of the Caesars.

The perfect companion to this excellent series is the ROMA VICTRIX WINE BEAKER Roma Victrix Wein Becher

Once again Harry Sidebottom delivers with this superb pre-equal series (Throne of the Caesars) to the excellent Warrior of Rome series.

The narrative takes place some 20 years before that of Sidebottom's excellent Fire in the East, when the Severan dynasty suddenly and violently is terminated with the assassination of Alexander Severus.

His death was the pivotal event beginning the troubled Crisis of the Third Century where a succession of short-reigning military emperors, revolting generals, and counter claimants presided over governmental chaos, civil war, general instability, barbarian incursions, and great economic disruption. He was succeeded by Maximinus Thrax, the principal protagonist in this new series.

Enough has been said on the narrative by previous reviewers, therefore as far as I am concerned this latest offering by the author is in keeping with the high standard of his previous works, with his usual in-depth attention to historical detail, combined with political intrigue, gritty battle scenes, and a compelling exciting prose throughout. Highly recommended.

Having privately studied Roman military history for over forty years and having read most of the notable historical novels dealing with the subject, I can only say how important this book and coming series is to those really interested in Roman military and political history. This period (mid- 3rd Century AD) had been notoriously neglected by practically all historical authors up to Harry Sidebottom`s truly epic "Warrior of Rome" series. Now, with "Iron and Rust" he begins a second series dealing with the period leading up to the age of the soldier emperors, begining in this novel with Maximinus Thrax (AD 235 -238) and (hopefully) following the story through to at least the reign of Aurelian (AD 270 - 275). I can understand if somebody who is not aquainted with the complex history of the period may be confused by the number of important personalities Sidebottom deals with in the book, but all will play crucial parts in the future. It is an excellent book and I hope just the start of a very long and breathtaking series.

I really do like the Balista books of Mr. Sidebottom, so I was very disappointed about this book. Totally different to his other books. No real story line in this book, a lot of people and names, but you will not like or dislike any of them, because you will not get to know them. Several sidestories may make sense in the second book, but make no sense however in this book. If I could, this would be the first book I`d like to get my money back!
