The Terror of Constantinople August 24, 2011

Posted by Ann in Fiction, Historical Fiction.

My husband was reading a book he really liked so I asked him to write something about it:

If you like exciting tales of intrigue or historical novels set in interesting periods of time, you’ll enjoy The Terror of Constantinople by Richard Blake. Set in Constantinople in 610 A.D., our hero, a native of Britain named Aelric, finds himself in the capital city of of the Eastern Roman Empire, on a mission involving the Papacy, while also caught up in the middle of a revolt against the current emperor, the unpopular Phocas. There is plenty of sex, violence and intrigue, although history buffs also will notice that Blake sneaks in quite a bit of information about what life was like in the early Byzantine empire. Readers can also get a glimpse of Rome in the Dark Ages if they read Conspiracies of Rome, the first book of the series, which the Rocky River Public Library also owns.
