Description

"A racing climax and a fully satisfying ending" - Kate Quinn

1960s Roma Nova. Retrained as an undercover agent, ex-Praetorian officer Aurelia Mitela is sent to Berlin to investigate silver smuggling, but barely escapes a near-lethal trap. Her lifelong nemesis, Caius Tellus, is determined to eliminate her and ruin Roma Nova. When Aurelia is closing in on him, he strikes at her most vulnerable point. Aurelia must make an agonising decision - her country, her love or her child?

A former military commander, Aurelia is one of Roma Nova's strong women, but she doubts in her heart and mind that she can overcome her implacable enemy. And what part does the mysterious and attractive Miklós play - a smuggler who knows too much? If you enjoy reading mystery books for women with plenty of twists and a female protagonist driving the action, this is for you!

Fourth in the Roma Nova thriller series, where Roman fiction is brought into the 20th century through an alternative history lens and first of the AURELIA trilogy. INSURRECTIO and RETALIO complete the trilogy.

Review quote

"Alison Morton's skill as a writer is superb; her heroines are feisty and full of kick-ass determination; the heroes are heroic, and the villains are the thoroughly nasty bad-guys they are meant to be." - Historical Novel Society

"Morton raises the bar on her Nova Roma series with a thrilling and intriguing history of what might have been. Effortlessly weaving fact and speculative fiction, AURELIA explores a 1960s that is at once familiar and utterly different - a brilliant page turner that will keep you gripped from first page to last. Highly recommended." - Russell Whitfield, author of the Gladiatrix series

"Meticulously researched. Wonderfully imagined. Alison Morton's Roma Nova will stay with you long after you have closed the pages." - Liesel Schwarz, author of Chronicles of Light and Shadow

"What if the Roman Empire hadn't fallen? Alison Morton handles this intriguing premise with her customary panache in AURELIA."
-Ruth Downie, author of the Ruso Medicus series

"Brilliant! Alison Morton's alternative world of Roma Nova - a feisty soldier heroine plunged into the depths of criminal conspiracy, and mind-blowing action all the way to the tense finale. Aurelia is a fabulous read." - David Ebsworth, Historical Novel Society award-winning author

"Yet again, Ms Morton paints this alternate world of hers with such colours, such details, that by the time the book has ended it comes as a surprise to return to a world without Roma Nova, without strong, impressive women like Aurelia Mitela. I am already looking forward to the next instalment - in fact, I crave a next instalment!" - Anna Belfrage, author of The Graham Saga
