Into this violent, unsettled land come the outcast Korthac and the remnants of his mighty desert fighters. Joining forces with Ariamus and his brutal band of thieves, the invaders set their sights on the biggest prize of all: the burgeoning city of Akkad—already renowned for its riches . . . and for the courage and wisdom of its two leaders.

Dawn of Empire, was an impressive debut for Sam Barone. I thoroughly loved that book and was keenly awaiting his follow up to see if he could build on that effort. Once again Sam has produced a winner with Empire Rising.

Barone returns to the cradle of civilization in this, his sequel to Dawn of Empire. Lord Eskkar, a former barbarian who earlier saved the city of Akkad from almost-certain defeat, and Lady Trella, an erstwhile slave and his wife, now rule the "biggest city on the Tigris." Hoping to crush the bandits marauding in the countryside and extend Akkadian rule, Eskkar dispatches one band of soldiers south from Akkad and leads another north. In Eskkar's absence, true to form a menace appears on the horizon in the form of Korthac, a newly arrived Egyptian warrior posing as a trader. Infiltrating the city with his followers he aims to seize power while arranging for assassins to take out Eskkar, while his other allies in the form of bandits are sent south to ambush the returning Akkadian soldiers. Inside the city, his followers attack the soldiers left behind to keep order and take a pregnant Lady Trella prisoner. Of course its never that simple and thats what draws the reader onwards in this page turner of a book.

Weaknesses in terms of the story? The outcome of the non stop action might be predictable, but thats about all one can fault since like Dawn of Empire the end result is not something that one doubts for long. Rather its a combination of other things such as the rich manner in which the author renders his Middle Eastern settings in all their historical detail and makes the reader feel they are present as well as the sharp and absorbing way he pens his characters be it heroes or villains and breathes life into them. The sense of adventure and promise of peril that lay ahead are nicely penned so the story doesnt have flat spots which have you skipping pages.

Fans of ancient historical fiction will enjoy this instructive journey to the dawn of civilization. Barone knows his stuff and writes fluently of the everday life of our ancient forbears and the quality of his research is very sound.

All up Empire Rising is a winner from the first page to the last. Highly recommended.

While research into the culture and history of early Mesopotamia has progressed some since these books were written, the author grounds his story in a deep understanding of love, hatred and greed, things that have never changed. The battle scenes are very well written, accurate to the period but gripping. Well worth sharing with others and re-reading.

Mr. Barone's writing style subtlety injects me into a time and place 5,000 years ago. I really feel like I'm inside the book, sensing the sights, sounds, smells, pleasures and pains of life 3,000 years Before Christ. It was not a good time to be a woman, that's certain; but has the mid-east changed that much in 5,000 years? Mr. Barone treats his female characters respectfully; you can see he loves women - the more capable and intelligent the better. However, he accurately portrays the culture of the time, and makes me glad I live now instead of then.

The story of Eskkar and Trella is one of those sagas that you wish could continue. I have read all the series several times. This is my THIRD time reading Empire Rising and like a good movie that you can see over and over again ( not that many of them) this book is a truly good read. Mr. Barone has captured what it must have been alike during the early Bronze Age .and I find myself hoping he will write one more ...

I have one more to read to finish this series. Loved it so much I named my new dog Trella after Eskars wife. The only reason I gave it four stars is that the author assumes that you have not read the previous books in the set and spends a lot of time explaining past happenings and biographies of each character in each book.
Overall a definite read for those who like historical fiction.
OCARO
I loved Dawn of Empire. This book is better by any measure. The writing style and dialogue is more flowing. Mr. Barone chooses to write the action in a non-linear fashion, switching scenes and rewinding the time line to catch-up to the action. At first disarming, I grew to see the value particularly in the final battle scenes with its divided action. He develops the Lani character into someone we grow to understand and believe in. Similar to his treatment of Trella, Sam Barone understands the value of a strong female persona. Even the minor characters are sufficiently developed to generate empathy (or hate).
While the ultimate results of the siege were predictable, there were enough little surprises along the way (boats, a heroic cat,....) to captivate this reader.
This book stands alone. By all means read DOE if you haven't, but the author has cleverly interwoven the necessary background into this novel without boring those that have. Very nice job.
More please!!

Let me be clear by saying I liked this book. It's not as great as the first in the series, but I did like it. It was formulaic and easy enough to figure out. I absolutely hated Korthac, but took solace in the fact that he would clearly meet an untimely end. I wish the author had put some more detail into his demise. Did I already say I hated him?
Very enjoyable -- too bad there's such a long wait for the next volume! While this continues the saga of Eskkar & Trella, it is truly Trella's reign that is being established. Eskkar relies so much more on her wisdom that is well beyond her years as well as her keen "sixth sense" to aid her to stay ahead of the political intrigues that begin to manifest society in Akkad. She's smart enough to know there are many more enemies than the recently defeated barbarian hordes. Those new enemies now seek to usurp Eskkar & Trella and gain the riches of Akkad's citizens. One has to remember this is 5,000 years ago - not yet ready for democracy as we know it!
