From the Reviews

Fascinating to read, very well written, an intriguing plot and I enjoyed it very much. — Derek Jacobi on Conspiracies of Rome

As always, Blake writes with immense historical and classical erudition, while displaying an ability to render 1500-year-old conversations in realistically colloquial English. — C4SS on The Blood of Alexandria

[Blake’s] plotting can seem off-puttingly anarchic until the penny drops that everyone is simultaneously embroiled in multiple, often conflicting, scams. Aelric’s survival among the last knockings of empire in Constantinople depends not on deducing who wants him dead, but who wants him dead at any given moment. — Daily Telegraph on The Terror of Constantinople

[Blake] knows how to deliver a fast-paced story and his grasp of the period is impressively detailed — Mail on Sunday on The Terror of Constantinople

I can’t resist recommending this first volume of a promised trilogy. Set during the last pangs of Imperial Rome, with a vivid account of the machinations of the early Church, it is well-informed, atmospheric and beautifully written. — Literary Review on Conspiracies of Rome
