About this product
- DescriptionThe first volume of a thrilling espionage adventure series unlike all others-with the unique setting of Late Roman North Africa in 347 A.D. among religious terrorists. The Circumcellions are suicidal extremists determined to uproot the centuries-old Roman army occupation of the Numidian desert and the official Christian church it w defends. Bodyguard-slave Marcus has only one mission-to spy his way to freedom-but has he bargained on betrayal by the man he respects more than any other? Meticulously researched, fast-paced, and well-plotted, 'A Veiled Assassin' introduces the Embers of Empire series that carries Marcus from Donatist fanatics to doomed Gallo-Roman army reformers to corrupt Antioch eunuch courtiers-all of them embers of a empire blindly smoldering towards extinction. 'Roman fiction' fans tiring of the Republic or Imperial periods are welcoming this new series with enthusiasm. A Veiled Assassin promises to rank Hunter alongside Steven Saylor, Robert Harris and Harry Sidebottom.
- Author BiographyQ.V. Hunter is the author of twelve novels, including six Embers of Empire stories of espionage adventure in the Late Roman Empire of the fourth century. Hunter lives in a Jurassien village which was once a lookout point for Roman soldiers posted to Julius Caesar's colony Noviodunum. They were assigned the resettlement and administration of Celtic Helvetic 'barbarians' defeated in the Battle of Bibracte in 58 BC. Hunter is married to a descendant of Alemannic refugees of the Roman Empire. They have three adult children.
