Valerio Massimo Manfredi – “Empire of Dragons”

Publ: 2006 ISBN: 9780330438261
Rating: ***

Beginning in Persia this historical novel, set in 260AD, sees Romans travelling East to the Chinese empire. I enjoyed it but sadly it did not live up to the previous Manfredi novels - Tyrant and The Last Legion. The English seemed a bit stilted at times despite the translator being the same person – Christine Feddersen-Manfredi.

Valerio Massimo Manfredi see The Last Legion
