The Sword of Damascus (Death of Rome Saga Book Four) Summary

The Sword of Damascus (Death of Rome Saga Book Four) by Richard Blake

The fourth book of the DEATH OF ROME SAGA is a must-read for those who loved the heroism of Gladiator and Spartacus.

687 AD.
Expansive and triumphant, the Caliphate has stripped Egypt and Syria from the Byzantine Empire. Farther and farther back, the formerly hegemonic Empire has been pushed - once to the very walls of its capital, Constantinople.

But what is all this to old Aelric, now in his nineties, and a refugee from the Empire he's spent his life holding together? No longer the Lord Senator Alaric, Brother Aelric is writing his memoirs in the remote wastes of northern England, and waiting patiently for death. Then a band of northern barbarians turn up outside the monastery - and then another.

Before he can draw another breath, Aelric is a prisoner of unknown forces, and headed straight back into the snake pit of Mediterranean hatreds. What awaits him at the end of his long and dangerous journey is a confrontation that decides the fate of all mankind.

The Sword of Damascus (Death of Rome Saga Book Four) Reviews

It would be hard to over-praise this extraordinary series, a near-perfect blend of historical detail and atmosphere with the plot of a conspiracy thriller, vivid characters, high philosophy and vulgar comedy. * The Morning Star *
If you like your Dark Age stories to be, well - particularly dark - then you'll love this. * Historical Novels Review *
Blake's plotting is as brilliantly devious as the mind of his sardonic and very earthy hero. * Lancashire Evening Post *
The Sword of Damascus is fast-paced and with as much gory action as you could shake a spear at. * Driffield Times *
