Ariantes is a Sarmatian, a barbarian warrior-prince, uprooted from his home and customs and thrust into the honorless lands of the Romans. The victims of a wartime pact struck with the emperor Marcus Aurelius to ensure the future of Sarmatia, Ariantes and his troop of accomplished horsemen are sent to Hadrian's Wall. Unsurprisingly, the Sarmatians hate Britain--an Island of Ghosts, filled with pale faces, stone walls, and an uneasy past. Struggling to command his own people to defend a land they despise, Ariantes is accepted by all, but trusted by none. The Romans fear his barbarian background, and his own men fear his gradual Roman assimilation. When Ariantes uncovers a conspiracy sure to damage both his Roman benefactors and his beloved countrymen, as well as put him and the woman he loves in grave danger, he must make a difficult decision--one that will change his own life forever.… (mer)

Read through this in a day - a delightful page-turner. Our hero arrives in Roman Britain and resists the temptation to get mixed up with a rebellion, winning a beautiful wife in the process. Lots about horses, too! ( )

Another one of Bradshaw's with an "outsider" protagonist. Sarmatians in Roman Britain on the Wall, helping to defend the Empire. The hero, Ariantes, helps foil a plot against the Empire, falls in love with a Briton, and all the time tries to maintain his own steppe culture while adapting somewhat to the Roman culture. Ariantes was one of the most appealing figures in fiction--stalwart, tactful, and a good strong leader. Most highly recommended. ( )

Competently written, if a bit straightforward and predictable: the plot moves quickly and kept my attention, but there's never really any doubt about the villain or the outcome. The main character, Ariantes, is likable, but he has a dispassionate, matter-of-fact voice and comes off as rather distant. But there are some generally moving moments; I particularly liked the way Ariantes' friendship with Facilis developed. There were times when I wanted more lingering explanation and reflection; things that seemed fairly important (Comittus' druid connections, for example, or Facilis' son's death) were dismissed or lightly brushed over, and the romance progressed very quickly. But this was an enjoyable read; I was glad for a fresh take on Roman Britain. I intend to read more by this author. ( )
