Pacorus leads his veteran army east to destroy once and for all the forces of his implacable enemies, Mithridates and Narses. But his foes have been waiting for this moment and what Pacorus believes will be a short campaign will turn into a long war that will culminate in the bloodiest battle in the history of the Parthian Empire.Once again Pacorus gathers his faithful companions around him for the life-or-death struggle with the treacherous Mithridates and the ambitious Narses – Domitus, the ex-Roman centurion and now general of Dura’s army; Gallia, his fierce warrior queen; Orodes, the landless prince; Prince Malik of the Agraci; and Surena, destined to become one of the greatest Parthian commanders of all time.A map of the Parthian Empire at the time of Pacorus (the 1st Century BC) can be found on the maps page of my website: www.peterdarman.com

  • Ed Rhodes

    CompellingAs with the other two books I had a hard time putting it down. The last battle with it's twist and turns was great. I was concerned by some lack of editing. Some instances of words missing, or placed out of order, causing me to pause to add or move the displaced word. Other than that I loved the book and have already purchases book four.

    Another Good StoryThis third volume of the Parthian series tells of Pacorus' temporary victory over Mithridates and a shaky peace in Parthia. It also sets up the plot for volume four. Well-written with only a few typos, it is not easy to put it down!

    This is steadily becoming one of my most favorite series' I've ever read. The length, characters, pacing, actionl amazing.I don't know what else I can say, its up there with anything I've read by David Gemmell or Bernard Cornwell. I love how not every battle is an easy victory for Pacorus and his army, its always a grinding battle with strategy that wins out in the end. Strategy and training - "training is bloodless drills, and battles are bloody drills."Honestly though, Dobbai is becoming one o [...]

    Peter Darman has left enough room to complete his series in fine fashion of blood, steel and historical glimpses of a possible past. His alternative perspective on Rome as the bully, rather than the Rome touted by other authors is a refreshing approach.The action scenes he creates are life-like and present insight into aspects of heated battle that have clearly stemmed from good research.Any reader who enjoys historical fiction, along with a great adventure in a well-written novel will enjoy thi [...]

    I loved this - possibly the best of the tree books in the 'Parthian Chronicles' to date. The story flies along, taking some unexpected turns and with plenty of action. I am now trying to find a map of the region in the period of the book to get a better understanding of who is where.I can only hope that more is yet to come in this series as Marcus Lucinius Crassus has not arrived yet! bernard Cornwell, eat your heart out.

  • Reden C Harper

    Overly descriptiveVery good storyline but very redundant in descriptions and an to much worry about the dress and pomp and circumstance of the courtly dealings.
