Yes, we have achieved much. Have we destroyed even more? In the name of Rome, Scipio Africanus systematically destroyed the hard-won empires of Hannibal and Alexander the Great.
With breathtaking battle scenes and a tale of violent passions, Scipio is a stunning sequel to Hannibal, Ross Leckie's acclaimed bestselling historical novel.
This inspired narrative reveals the aristocrat, general, politician, and aesthete behind the Roman triumph to bring us a novel of love and betrayal, about a genius who discovers he is only a man.

Review by DorianG
Stunning, stylish and extremely well written. Leckie paints a vivid picture of the man behind Scipio (Africanus) and his story of how he saved Rome from Hannibal. The first book in the trilogy, Hannibal, is equally well written and weaves the tale of Hannibal's rise to power and his hatred of Rome.
