    May 28, 2018

    A thrilling and action-packed novel which takes a look at the conflict between the Republic of Rome and Macedon and Greece. This is the final struggle between those two great powers of ancient Europe - Greece and Rome - and it is bloody, with disasters and very few triumphs on both sid...

    A pretty good action packed novel based on the greek and romans at war. Multiple character arcs from both sides, both from the war/fighting perspective as well as the political pov. The action scenes were alot of fun, and quite graphic. I think the overall plotting was a little too cha...

    Review Series five begins for Ben Kane with Clash of Empires, two empires butting up against one another, one a shadow of its once greatness but still with sharp teeth, and the other an Empire on the rise, growing, determined and ravenous for conquest. LInk to full review: https:...

    So pleased to have won this book in a Goodreads First Reads giveaway. It's not usually a book that I would normally read, but was surprised as to how much I enjoyed it. It certainly makes a change to read something different and based upon this book, I shall be looking out for more ...

    There's no doubt about it - when it comes to Roman military history, Ben Kane is the undisputed master and this is another in a line of meticulously researched novels set during the days of the Roman Empire. Usually, we find the Roman armies battling barbarians somewhere,but this time ...

    This fantastic book is the 1st volume of the "Clash of Empires" series from the author Ben Kane. The historical details, which you can find at the end of the book in the Author's Note, concerning this wonderful story are very well researched and documented, and these details are super...

    I won an advanced uncorrected proof copy of this book in a Goodreads giveaway. As I read the uncorrected proof I cannot quote from the book directly or comment on the typos that I found but due to a mix up my book only arrived a fortnight before the actual release date and because of o...

    Kane Is More Than Able! This was my first time with a Ben Kane novel and I guarantee it won't be my last! This looks set to be a series that will be genuinely epic in nature and scope. The multiple viewpoints cover life at both the top and bottom of both sides in this clash of Ancie...

    This is without doubt Ben Kane's best book to date and he'd already written some good ones! Set around 200BC and shortly after the defeat of Hannibal of Carthage at Zama, this book recounts some of the battles fought between Macedonia and some of its neighbouring states, as Philip, ...

    I love Ben's books, and have devoured them all since I first discovered The Forgotten Legion many years ago. This, I think, is one of his best. As always, the story is told from all angles. From Flamininus in Rome, trying to bribe his way to make himself consul of Rome. He is hungr...

    Some of the storylines were better than others, but I liked how there were several character arcs occurring at once. I'm no expert on ancient Rome, but my main takeaway from reading this is that Ben Kane probably is. The world felt very authentic. I listened to this as an audiobook, an...

    Im a huge Ben Kane fan, so this book i have been waiting on for months and months and months...it was certainly worth the wait though. Clash of empires is a brilliant, well written story about the romans and the old greek macedonians and how they came to be one. In this book there ar...

    This book is a gripping read and one through which I learned about the brutality of life in in both the Roman and Macedonian armies. By cleverly having main characters on both armies the author allows you to make up your own mind which, if either, side you wish to support. Both have le...

    I'm a big fan of Ben Kane so I had high hopes for this book. Whilst it didn't hit the heights of the Forgotton Legion I still loved it. The book centres around 4 main characters and all are given plenty of exposure. The way Ben is able to draw you in to the world with the detail he pro...

    Awesome start. Simply a great read. Book 1 of a new trilogy and I'm already impatient for the other 2. Clash of empires is non stop action pretty much from start to finish. The characters are almost real and I know I'm going to be sad when some or all of them get killed. 10 out of ...

    another great read by Ben Kane, I loved the subject matter of this book Iam big fan of both Roman and Greek ancient battles. Mr Kane does an excellent job in describing the battle scenes and the switching back and forth from Roman to Greek prospective in the story was awesome. ...

    Educating and entertaining I can't believe there is no sequel to conclude the ultimate subjugation an annexing of Greece. Ears watering, just hope it happens ...

    Nothing on scarrow Was a struggle at times with too many characters hard to like and no ending to seemingly random story lines. ...

    Yet again, Ben Kane has produced the goods. This is a first class read that grips from the very first chapter. A great addition to an impressive body of work. Loved it! ...

    A pretty good action packed novel based on the greek and romans at war. Multiple character arcs from both sides, both from the war/fighting perspective as well as the political pov. The action scenes were alot of fun, and quite graphic. I think the overall plotting was a little too cha...

    Review Series five begins for Ben Kane with Clash of Empires, two empires butting up against one another, one a shadow of its once greatness but still with sharp teeth, and the other an Empire on the rise, growing, determined and ravenous for conquest. LInk to full review: https:...

    So pleased to have won this book in a Goodreads First Reads giveaway. It's not usually a book that I would normally read, but was surprised as to how much I enjoyed it. It certainly makes a change to read something different and based upon this book, I shall be looking out for more ...

    There's no doubt about it - when it comes to Roman military history, Ben Kane is the undisputed master and this is another in a line of meticulously researched novels set during the days of the Roman Empire. Usually, we find the Roman armies battling barbarians somewhere,but this time ...

    This fantastic book is the 1st volume of the "Clash of Empires" series from the author Ben Kane. The historical details, which you can find at the end of the book in the Author's Note, concerning this wonderful story are very well researched and documented, and these details are super...

    I won an advanced uncorrected proof copy of this book in a Goodreads giveaway. As I read the uncorrected proof I cannot quote from the book directly or comment on the typos that I found but due to a mix up my book only arrived a fortnight before the actual release date and because of o...

    Kane Is More Than Able! This was my first time with a Ben Kane novel and I guarantee it won't be my last! This looks set to be a series that will be genuinely epic in nature and scope. The multiple viewpoints cover life at both the top and bottom of both sides in this clash of Ancie...

    This is without doubt Ben Kane's best book to date and he'd already written some good ones! Set around 200BC and shortly after the defeat of Hannibal of Carthage at Zama, this book recounts some of the battles fought between Macedonia and some of its neighbouring states, as Philip, ...

    I love Ben's books, and have devoured them all since I first discovered The Forgotten Legion many years ago. This, I think, is one of his best. As always, the story is told from all angles. From Flamininus in Rome, trying to bribe his way to make himself consul of Rome. He is hungr...

    Some of the storylines were better than others, but I liked how there were several character arcs occurring at once. I'm no expert on ancient Rome, but my main takeaway from reading this is that Ben Kane probably is. The world felt very authentic. I listened to this as an audiobook, an...

    Im a huge Ben Kane fan, so this book i have been waiting on for months and months and months...it was certainly worth the wait though. Clash of empires is a brilliant, well written story about the romans and the old greek macedonians and how they came to be one. In this book there ar...

    This book is a gripping read and one through which I learned about the brutality of life in in both the Roman and Macedonian armies. By cleverly having main characters on both armies the author allows you to make up your own mind which, if either, side you wish to support. Both have le...

    I'm a big fan of Ben Kane so I had high hopes for this book. Whilst it didn't hit the heights of the Forgotton Legion I still loved it. The book centres around 4 main characters and all are given plenty of exposure. The way Ben is able to draw you in to the world with the detail he pro...

    Awesome start. Simply a great read. Book 1 of a new trilogy and I'm already impatient for the other 2. Clash of empires is non stop action pretty much from start to finish. The characters are almost real and I know I'm going to be sad when some or all of them get killed. 10 out of ...

    another great read by Ben Kane, I loved the subject matter of this book Iam big fan of both Roman and Greek ancient battles. Mr Kane does an excellent job in describing the battle scenes and the switching back and forth from Roman to Greek prospective in the story was awesome. ...

    Brilliant I know when I've enjoyed a book when I swipe the page to find I've reached the end and think nnnooooo (there's no hiding where you are with a physical book, but it's easy to lose track electronically!!!). Bring on the next instalment please Ben. ...

    This is the first time I have read a book by this author and it certainly won't be the last. I have never read a book covering this era in history and it was brilliantly written and researched. Would give ten stars if I could. Very highly recommended. ...

    3.5 ...

    Educating and entertaining I can't believe there is no sequel to conclude the ultimate subjugation an annexing of Greece. Ears watering, just hope it happens ...

    Nothing on scarrow Was a struggle at times with too many characters hard to like and no ending to seemingly random story lines. ...

    Yet again, Ben Kane has produced the goods. This is a first class read that grips from the very first chapter. A great addition to an impressive body of work. Loved it! ...

    This book is a gripping read and one through which I learned about the brutality of life in in both the Roman and Macedonian armies. By cleverly having main characters on both armies the author allows you to make up your own mind which, if either, side you wish to support. Both have le...

    I'm a big fan of Ben Kane so I had high hopes for this book. Whilst it didn't hit the heights of the Forgotton Legion I still loved it. The book centres around 4 main characters and all are given plenty of exposure. The way Ben is able to draw you in to the world with the detail he pro...

    Awesome start. Simply a great read. Book 1 of a new trilogy and I'm already impatient for the other 2. Clash of empires is non stop action pretty much from start to finish. The characters are almost real and I know I'm going to be sad when some or all of them get killed. 10 out of ...

    another great read by Ben Kane, I loved the subject matter of this book Iam big fan of both Roman and Greek ancient battles. Mr Kane does an excellent job in describing the battle scenes and the switching back and forth from Roman to Greek prospective in the story was awesome. ...

    Brilliant I know when I've enjoyed a book when I swipe the page to find I've reached the end and think nnnooooo (there's no hiding where you are with a physical book, but it's easy to lose track electronically!!!). Bring on the next instalment please Ben. ...

    This is the first time I have read a book by this author and it certainly won't be the last. I have never read a book covering this era in history and it was brilliantly written and researched. Would give ten stars if I could. Very highly recommended. ...

    3.5 ...

    Educating and entertaining I can't believe there is no sequel to conclude the ultimate subjugation an annexing of Greece. Ears watering, just hope it happens ...

    Nothing on scarrow Was a struggle at times with too many characters hard to like and no ending to seemingly random story lines. ...

    Yet again, Ben Kane has produced the goods. This is a first class read that grips from the very first chapter. A great addition to an impressive body of work. Loved it! ...

    A thrilling and action-packed novel which takes a look at the conflict between the Republic of Rome and Macedon and Greece. This is the final struggle between those two great powers of ancient Europe - Greece and Rome - and it is bloody, with disasters and very few triumphs on both sid...

    A pretty good action packed novel based on the greek and romans at war. Multiple character arcs from both sides, both from the war/fighting perspective as well as the political pov. The action scenes were alot of fun, and quite graphic. I think the overall plotting was a little too cha...

    Review Series five begins for Ben Kane with Clash of Empires, two empires butting up against one another, one a shadow of its once greatness but still with sharp teeth, and the other an Empire on the rise, growing, determined and ravenous for conquest. LInk to full review: https:...

    Kane Is More Than Able! This was my first time with a Ben Kane novel and I guarantee it won't be my last! This looks set to be a series that will be genuinely epic in nature and scope. The multiple viewpoints cover life at both the top and bottom of both sides in this clash of Ancie...

    This is without doubt Ben Kane's best book to date and he'd already written some good ones! Set around 200BC and shortly after the defeat of Hannibal of Carthage at Zama, this book recounts some of the battles fought between Macedonia and some of its neighbouring states, as Philip, ...

    I love Ben's books, and have devoured them all since I first discovered The Forgotten Legion many years ago. This, I think, is one of his best. As always, the story is told from all angles. From Flamininus in Rome, trying to bribe his way to make himself consul of Rome. He is hungr...

    This book is a gripping read and one through which I learned about the brutality of life in in both the Roman and Macedonian armies. By cleverly having main characters on both armies the author allows you to make up your own mind which, if either, side you wish to support. Both have le...

    I'm a big fan of Ben Kane so I had high hopes for this book. Whilst it didn't hit the heights of the Forgotton Legion I still loved it. The book centres around 4 main characters and all are given plenty of exposure. The way Ben is able to draw you in to the world with the detail he pro...

    Awesome start. Simply a great read. Book 1 of a new trilogy and I'm already impatient for the other 2. Clash of empires is non stop action pretty much from start to finish. The characters are almost real and I know I'm going to be sad when some or all of them get killed. 10 out of ...

    another great read by Ben Kane, I loved the subject matter of this book Iam big fan of both Roman and Greek ancient battles. Mr Kane does an excellent job in describing the battle scenes and the switching back and forth from Roman to Greek prospective in the story was awesome. ...

    Brilliant I know when I've enjoyed a book when I swipe the page to find I've reached the end and think nnnooooo (there's no hiding where you are with a physical book, but it's easy to lose track electronically!!!). Bring on the next instalment please Ben. ...

    This is the first time I have read a book by this author and it certainly won't be the last. I have never read a book covering this era in history and it was brilliantly written and researched. Would give ten stars if I could. Very highly recommended. ...

    3.5 ...

    Educating and entertaining I can't believe there is no sequel to conclude the ultimate subjugation an annexing of Greece. Ears watering, just hope it happens ...

    Nothing on scarrow Was a struggle at times with too many characters hard to like and no ending to seemingly random story lines. ...

    A thrilling and action-packed novel which takes a look at the conflict between the Republic of Rome and Macedon and Greece. This is the final struggle between those two great powers of ancient Europe - Greece and Rome - and it is bloody, with disasters and very few triumphs on both sid...

    A pretty good action packed novel based on the greek and romans at war. Multiple character arcs from both sides, both from the war/fighting perspective as well as the political pov. The action scenes were alot of fun, and quite graphic. I think the overall plotting was a little too cha...

    Review Series five begins for Ben Kane with Clash of Empires, two empires butting up against one another, one a shadow of its once greatness but still with sharp teeth, and the other an Empire on the rise, growing, determined and ravenous for conquest. LInk to full review: https:...

    So pleased to have won this book in a Goodreads First Reads giveaway. It's not usually a book that I would normally read, but was surprised as to how much I enjoyed it. It certainly makes a change to read something different and based upon this book, I shall be looking out for more ...

    There's no doubt about it - when it comes to Roman military history, Ben Kane is the undisputed master and this is another in a line of meticulously researched novels set during the days of the Roman Empire. Usually, we find the Roman armies battling barbarians somewhere,but this time ...

    This fantastic book is the 1st volume of the "Clash of Empires" series from the author Ben Kane. The historical details, which you can find at the end of the book in the Author's Note, concerning this wonderful story are very well researched and documented, and these details are super...

    I won an advanced uncorrected proof copy of this book in a Goodreads giveaway. As I read the uncorrected proof I cannot quote from the book directly or comment on the typos that I found but due to a mix up my book only arrived a fortnight before the actual release date and because of o...

    Kane Is More Than Able! This was my first time with a Ben Kane novel and I guarantee it won't be my last! This looks set to be a series that will be genuinely epic in nature and scope. The multiple viewpoints cover life at both the top and bottom of both sides in this clash of Ancie...

    This is without doubt Ben Kane's best book to date and he'd already written some good ones! Set around 200BC and shortly after the defeat of Hannibal of Carthage at Zama, this book recounts some of the battles fought between Macedonia and some of its neighbouring states, as Philip, ...

    I love Ben's books, and have devoured them all since I first discovered The Forgotten Legion many years ago. This, I think, is one of his best. As always, the story is told from all angles. From Flamininus in Rome, trying to bribe his way to make himself consul of Rome. He is hungr...
