Praise for RETALIO

“RETALIO is a classic tale of resistance and resilience as an exiled Aurelia Mitela leads an army of the dispossessed to free Roma Nova from the clutches of the despicable Caius. As always Alison Morton’s alternative world where a fragment of the Roman Empire has survived to the present day feels utterly authentic and Caius’s Roma Nova, where women have been turned into virtual slaves is chillingly reminiscent of the Nazi occupied territories of the Second World War. RETALIO reaches an explosive climax in the tunnels of the capital as Caius’s empire crumbles, and the only regret when the action stops is that this is the final book of a remarkable trilogy.”
Douglas Jackson, author of Gaius Valerius Verrens series

“Alison Morton’s RETALIO is an international thriller, full of intrigue and espionage, set against an imaginative retelling of a history that feels authentic and real. The fight-back for Roma Nova has begun, and what an entertaining ride it is!”
Matthew Harffy, author of The Bernicia Chronicles

“Tense, thrilling and incredibly timely, this is what happens when women fight back. When a progressive society is taken over by an egomaniacal despot, women can succumb or retaliate. Morton shows alarming prescience. RETALIO is a terrific concept engendering passion, love and loyalty. I actually cheered aloud.”
J J Marsh, author of the Beatrice Stubbs series

“RETALIO is an engrossing read from the very first page with a cast of characters who grapple with their situation and loyalties. Aurelia is a tough but principled heroine you’ll root for over the course of every twist and setback she faces as she heads towards the finale and a meeting with her arch nemesis. An exciting, gripping and page turning read.”
L J Trafford, author of The Four Emperors series
