The third century BCE: One man will bring an empire to its knees.
The wars between Rome and Carthage will see some of the most bloody and savage battles of all time. Hundreds of thousands will die, and Rome will win mastery of the known world.
Amid this, a figure will emerge who has become the stuff of myth and legend: Hannibal Barca.
In this breathtaking chronicle of love and hate, heroism and cruelty, one of history’s greatest generals returns to life. Hannibal learns, through suffering, that man is but a shadow of a dream.
A scintillating, blood-soaked tale of loss and victory, this is a masterful piece of historical fiction, perfect for fans of Simon Scarrow, Conn Iggulden and Ian Ross.
