In the final instalment of the Twilight of Empire series, Aurelius Castus is ordered out of retirement to confront the King of Persia's challenge to Rome's authority in the east.

Ferocity, heroism, and savage bloodshed: the next gripping instalment in the Twilight of Empire series. For fans of Ben Kane and Conn Iggulden.

When the simmering conflict between Rome and Persia threatens once again to ignite into open war , there is only one man the Emperor Constantine can trust to hold the eastern frontier.

Aurelius Castus , retired general of the empire, has fought long and hard for Rome. When the summons comes to command an army once more, he obeys with a heavy heart. Is he still the fearsome fighting machine of old? Will his young, ambitious officers respect and follow a great soldier of former days? But when tragedy strikes the imperial household, Castus must race to defend the last bulwark standing against the might of Persia.

In the pitiless heat of the Syrian desert, engulfed by whirling sandstorms and facing a fearless, treacherous foe, Castus knows that the fight ahead will be the fiercest he has ever known, and will very probably be his last.

Ian Ross was born in England, and studied painting before turning to writing fiction. He has travelled widely, and after a year in Italy teaching English and exploring the ruins of empire reawakened his early love for ancient history, he returned to the UK with growing fascination for the period known as late antiquity. He has been researching and writing about the later Roman world and its army for over a decade. @IanRossAuthor

'Sprawling in scope and rich in historical detail, this is a gritty, thrilling end to a wonderful series. Ian Ross not only brings us a scintillating tale, with page-turning action and vivid characters, he also writes with such authority and conviction you could believe he has discovered time travel and witnessed the events first-hand ... Triumph in Dust is a triumph of historical fiction' Matthew Harffy. '[A] series that doesn't let up in quality' Weekend Sport. 'Ross is a splendid writer ... I was gripped by the unexpected twists and turns as history came to life in this fast-moving story' Ruth Downie. 'With consummate skill, Ross presents us with a vision of late Rome that is tense, exhilarating, complex and exotic ... Triumph in Dust stays with the reader long after the last page is turned' Simon Turney. 'Tense and suspenseful, punctuated by horrific violence, unforeseen tragedy, and unexpected heroism' Steven Saylor, author of The Throne of Caesar and the New York Times bestseller Roma: The Novel of Ancient Rome.
