Editorial Reviews


Does the name of the Chinese village of Liqian derive from the Latin word "legion"? Are its inhabitants descended from Roman legionaries captured by the Parthians at the battle of Carrhae in 53 BCE? As a scholar, I have to say that this intriguing notion is probably legend rather than history, but no matter: Lewis McIntyre shows that it's a great starting-point for an epic adventure. From Roman Spain to the Han empire of China, the story ranges over the whole known world of 2000 years ago (and even a bit beyond!), with authentic historical background and best of all plenty of imagination. It's a real page-turner, packed with exciting action, ingenious twists and turns, and varied and interesting characters whose fate you will really care about--a perfect book for the twenty-hour flight from London to Sydney, as I can personally attest.
- Dr Nicholas Sims-Williams, PhD, Professor Emeritus, School of Oriental And Asiatic Studies, University of London
