Roman Spies Take the Back Gate to Hell

Standard

As past posts will attest, I’m intrigued by a literary mash-up, and this one is definitely mash-uppy. A spy thriller set in ancient Rome. Who’da thunk it? Apparently, author Q.V. Hunter.

 

The Back Gate to Hell, a Novel of the Late Roman Empire by Q. V. Hunter. $5.99 from Smashwords.com
Roman agent Numidianus’ mission to spy on Caesar Gallus and his vicious consort Constantia tosses him into Antioch’s cesspool of corruption. This third adventure in the Embers of Empire pits Marcus against the warring heirs to the Constantine dynasty and the eunuchs who rule them. Can Marcus save the Empire? More important, can he save his son Leo from mutilation by the Chief Eunuch, Eusebius?

    Better to start with Hunter’s “The Veiled Assassin,” then “Usurpers,” before moving on to this volume three, because there’s a great narrative arc across this new series.

    The first three of Hunter’s books are all up on Smashwords as of last week. I read on an iPad, so that’s cool. Thanks for an interesting blog.
