Declared by Wilbur Smith as 'the rising star of historical fiction', Ben Kane has become a writing sensation.
To celebrate the hardback release of Hannibal: Clouds of War by Sunday Times bestselling author Ben Kane on February 27th, we have a copy of the compelling novel to give away!
As Rome's war with Carthage continues, two friends – now on opposing sides – confront each other in one of the most brutal sieges of all time.
213 BC. Syracuse. Under the merciless Sicilian sun, a city is at war. Outside the walls, a vast Roman army waits. Yet the city’s incredible defences, designed by Archimedes, mean that Syracuse will not be taken easily.
A veteran of the bitter war since its beginning, Quintus is ready to give his life in the service of the Republic. But dangers face him from within his own ranks as well as from the enemy – who include his former friend, the Carthaginian, Hanno.
Hanno has been sent by his general Hannibal to aid Syracuse in its fight against Rome. Pledged to bring death to all Romans, he is diverted from his mission by the discovery of Quintus’ sister Aurelia, a captive within the city.
Two friends on opposing sides. A woman caught between them. They are about to meet in one of the most brutal sieges of all time. Who will survive?
Hannibal: Clouds of War by Ben Kane is published by Preface, £12.99
