Ship of Rome & Captain of Rome - John Stack

If you are a fan of action packed-historical fiction and love the world of Ancient Rome then John Stack is the author for you.

Both novels are set during the lead up to and in the Punic Wars (between Carthage and Rome) and signaled the beginning of the end for the ancient civilization of Carthage. Detailed accounts of Roman army and navy life make for fascinating reading - as does the fictional insights into the wheelings and dealings of Romans senators.

The main characters Septimus and Atticus represent both the ancient traditions of Rome and the new worlds of the empire - and naturally the tensions created by this mix. The final in the trilogy - Master of Rome - in 2011.
