GAME OF EMPIRES


Richard Blake has done it again,  This is his latest historical novel set in the seventh century, a period very much neglected by novelists in general.  You can get all his books at Amazon HERE.  I've read all of them so far, and if you haven't yet, you're in for a treat.

GAME OF EMPIRES
RICHARD BLAKE

Constantinople, 617 AD
Chained up in a condemned cell, Rodi thinks it’s the last day of his life.
It becomes the first.
Though only fourteen, his brains and skill at forgery make him too valuable to the Roman Empire for wasting in a public execution.

The Lord Treasurer Alaric recruits him into a top secret security agency. His job is to turn the tables in the Empire’s war with the so far victorious Persians.
This is a story that takes you from the glittering palaces and sordid streets and brothels of the Imperial City, to the barbarian-ravaged provinces, to high mountain tops fringed with pine. Here, with no one to help but a naïve Christian missionary, Rodi must prove himself in a contest with the devotees of an obscene and bloody idol and a Persian spy.
Can young Rodi survive and come out on top in this ruthless and secret Game of Empires...?
Game of Empires is a thrilling historical novella, perfect for fans of Simon Scarrow, Bernard Cornwell and Conn Iggulden.
