    One thought on “The Flames of Cyzicus”

    1. originally posted at: thebookplank/2015Ever since having had the pleasure of reading The Siege, the first book in Nick's Brown Historical Fantasy series Agent of Rome, I have been hooked. Over the time with The Black Stone and The Far Shore I have only come to like this series more. When it comes to Historical Roman Fiction Nick Brown is definitely the author to follow. The two short stories so far that featured in this universe all focused on different characters, with The Flames of Cyzicus, Ni [...]

    2. How long has it been since I last read of Cassius Corbulo in ‘The Black Stone’? Well I’m not sure, but it feels like half a decade. And I don’t know how long we have to wait for the next instalment. It gets like that with a really good series, doesn’t it? Like a drug. You’re waiting, twitching, for your next fix. Luckily, Nick Brown has given me enough of a fix to keep me going until his next novel is released.Flames of Cyzicus is a short story of around 10,000 words, which is long e [...]

    3. So we are back with Corbulo and Simo for a nice short tale set between books 1 & 2 of the Agent of Rome series. It's a nice little tale with a decent plot the only thing it lacked for me was some sort of a twist or surprise. For a short story it great though and for someone like me wanting to get into the Agent of Rome series again this is good book to do it. Some times i need a good short story to break up my reading progress going from one 400 page book to another books like this are perfe [...]

    4. Another job well done with this story. The character (Cassius) that Nick has created is probably my favorite literary character. He's not always good, and you don't always like the things he does (or his reasons why), but that makes him even better! It's been so long since I've read a book without Indavara, it was strange haha - but this story didn't need him. Shows the great investigative skills of Cassius, and helps you realize why he is chosen and why he succeeds in later stories.

    5. When I see a Nick Brown short/book it’s a drop everything and read occasion and once again Nick delivers. A quick simple story that really helps readers get a good background on Cassius and why he is so good at what he does and what makes him think the way he thinks. I loved it.

    6. Great readQuick read that was entertaining , I didn't want it to end.Free book on kindle from a great writer.

    7. When it comes to Roman Historical Fiction, Nick Brown is the man! In The Flames of Cyzicus: A Cassius Corbulo short story we catch up with Corbulo who has received a promotion and has a lot going on. His responsibility is to prepare for a visit from a Legion of Rome.Cassius thinks this should be a pretty simple assignment until in one night several granaries go up in flames. While this isn't a major problem at first, things escalate and Cassius knows he has to get to the bottom of this and quick [...]

    8. A nicely done short story that gives us a look into the mind and abilities of Cassius Corbuloe unlikely hero of the author's series about Corbulo starting with The Siege.

    9. Great reading back to a younger Corbulo. Hard to really get into a story when it’s only 10,000 or so words but Nick does a brilliant job of squeezing in as much plot as he can into a few sheets of paper.We see Corbulo in the city of Cyzicus, still in the early days of his career. The story is set shortly after the first novel in the series, ‘the siege’ and we see Corbulo actually fulfilling his duties as a member of the frumentarii (grain collectors, often used as spies in the mid to late [...]
