Praise for AURELIA

“A racing climax and a fully satisfying ending” – Kate Quinn

“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

“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

“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 delivers a fast-paced story set in a world slightly – but fundamentally – different from our own. Roma Nova as a country does not exist – not really – but 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
