Ancient Roman Novels on Kindle

Updated on September 13, 2014

Stock up on your Ancient Roman Novels

I love the Kindle editions of books! I can get my dose of historical novels - especially my Ancient Roman novels so cheaply.

Stock up on swashbuckling adventures, outstanding military history, murder, romance and the glory and gore that was Rome

Now you can do it cheaply and conveniently with your Kindle,

Hard Boiled

Nox Dormienda (A Long Night for Sleeping) (Arcturus Mystery Series Book 1)
Nox Dormienda (A Long Night for Sleeping) (Arcturus Mystery Series Book 1)

The cynical detective, the femme fatale, and the seedier sides of town, all help create the feel of the classic detective stories of the 1940s.

 

A little humour in Iberia

No Roads Lead to Rome
No Roads Lead to Rome

Are the problems of modern corporate culture actually modern? Bureaucratic posturing and power-grabbing in the ancient Roman world has parallels to our own time.I wish this novel had been longer

 

Tales from the Legions

Simon Scarrow's popular Roman Empire series is a combustible concoction of intrigue, treachery and violence. His books always deliver intense action, authentic detail and the beguiling characters of Macro and Cato.

James Mace also writes of the legions in action - plenty of it too. His Artorian Chronicles folloow the adventures of Artorius who joins the legions at age 17, his heart full of revenge.

Both of these authors write soldiers' novels, giving a rich picture of life in the legions as well as a solid historical background with plenty of fighting, military tactics and general life as a soldier.

More from the Legions

James Mace is an old hand in the Ancient Roam soldier genre. A former soldier himself, he writes with authentic historical detail, of the adventures of a young legionary, Artorius.

Soldier of Rome : The Legionary - Book One

What a fool you are, Quintilius Varus! Arminius thought. Your head and your bloody Eagles will soon be mine

As soon as we hear the name of General Varus, we know that the dreadful rout of the legions in Teutoberg Forest is coming up.

 

Soldier of Rome : The Sacrovir Revolt - Book Two

It's the year 20 CE and legionary Artorius has matured during his five years in the legions, stronger in mind; and stronger in body. Like the rest of the Legion, he is unaware of the shadow growing well within the Empire’s borders, a shadow that looks to envelope the Rhine Legions.

 

Soldier of Rome : Heir to Rebellion - Book Three

Soldier of Rome: Heir to Rebellion (The Artorian Chronicles Book 3)
Soldier of Rome: Heir to Rebellion (The Artorian Chronicles Book 3)

The city of Lugdunum is the scene for a series of grisly murders.Artorius inadvertently finds himself at the centre of the search to find these mysterious killers before they undermine the city’s faith in the protection of the legions

      I haven't thought of actively shopping on kindle for novels of any kind... don't yet really enjoy reading on the computer... feels too much like 'work' as that is all I do all day, every day, stare at the writing on the computer screen!

      Lenses like this may make me finally reconsider and start shopping more in Kindle!

      I'm currently reading the 'Gordianus the Finder' series by Steven Saylor - murder mysteries in the Rome of Cicero, Pompey and Caesar. 'Roman Blood' is the first one, if you've not read them, and it is available on Kindle I believe.
