At the Harrogate History Festival, I was thrilled to be photographed with Simon Scarrow, author of the famous Eagle (Macro and Cato) series of Roman historical fiction.
Apart from the strapline on the front cover, he said the following kind words:
“Alison Morton has built a fascinating, exotic world! Carina’s a bright, sassy detective with a winning dry sense of humour. I warmed to her quickly and wanted to find out how she dealt with the problems thrown in her path. The plot is pretty snappy too and gets off to a quick start which made it easy to keep turning the pages.
There are a fair number of alternative historical fictions where Rome never disappeared, but for my money this is one of the better ones.”
Established and well-respected authors giving new authors their support is gracious, generous and collegiate. Thank you, Simon.
