Poignant relationships, and vividly real battle scenes color the pages of this gripping novel. I enjoyed every moment of this book. The writing is clear and invisible, the research impeccable, and the poignant hardships faced by the characters made for a very engrossing story. The storyline is touched with realism and took many interesting twists and turns. Although the battle scenes were numerous, which will greatly appeal to male readership, this does not detract from holding the interest of female readers. There is something for all in this tale.
The story continues with two more installments in this new series. Ben Kane is a talented, best-selling author, and I love the way he can weave a complex tale. Most definitely, I will be reading more of his work. This is a fabulous book that I read in the span of 24 hours. Yup, it was that good!

Hannibal, Enemy of Rome is engaging and follows the actual events of the Second Punic War very closely. The action only goes up to the battle of Trebia, and I understand that there will be sequels. I look forward to reading Ben Kane's future books on the Second Punic War.
Friendship between sworn rivals, blood debts, impossible love, sense of duty facing certain death, rivalry between brothers, all against the gigantic backdrop of Hannibal's army crossing the Alps and showing in the battle of the Trebia that the threat to Rome was very real. As all of Kane's books the research is meticulous and the reconstruction excellent. Looking forward to the continuation of this epic series!
