It makes life interesting for Marcus and company, since not even a victory is set in stone—it's all about how it's spun politically in Rome. Despite some troubling finding my feet, I thoroughly enjoyed the time I spent with Marcus and the Tungrian cohorts in Dacia. Riches tells a compelling tale that spares no one and had me blinking in shock at some of the turns of events in the book. I was completely drawn in by the men of the Tungrian cohorts and I was really glad I could crack open the next book, The Eagle's Vengeance , immediately.
While The Wolf's Gold stands well enough on its own — its plot and the Tungrians' mission for the book are all resolved and completed — the overarching story is clearly still ongoing, with Marcus having received an important new piece of information to aid him in his quest for justice and revenge.
I may have only joined the adventure late, but I'm glad I did and I look forward to spending many more books with Marcus, Julius, Scaurus and company. This book was provided for review by the publisher. Another excellent book in the series I'm reading the series as far as it's gone before I read the latest one.
There are a few good writers of excellent Roman fiction well set in the historic context and Anthony Riches is one of them. Apr 06, Mervyn Cartwright rated it did not like it.
Couldn't finish this book, in fact I was wondering why I started to read it. Characterisation is crude, storyline confusing. Not recommended. May 05, Carole rated it liked it. A very good read.

The Wolf's Gold: Empire V
I've been a fan of Tony Riches since Corvus first put in an appearance in Wounds of Honour, and I'm always pleased to pick up an 'Empire' book. I've done reviews of the others so far, and I would reference them in this review. The first three in the series I always considered very much a single story arc over three books.
Moreover, they were staunchly and solidly novels of the Roman military. Cue Tony's curveball: The Leopard Sword. The fourth book in the series was somethi I've been a fan of Tony Riches since Corvus first put in an appearance in Wounds of Honour, and I'm always pleased to pick up an 'Empire' book. The fourth book in the series was something of a departure in style, concentrating more on an ingenious plotline of intrigues and banditry than on the military campaigns we'd come to expect. Having read reviews and spoken to people since, I'm not sure how well-received the change was.
I personally thought it was a triumph and a real growth in character, style and plot crafting. Well The Wolf's Gold should be an all-pleaser as far as I can see. In one way, it's very much a return to a military-oriented plotline, with stretches of good solid campaigning in there, which should please the die-hard 'Military Riches' fans, and yet also involves a depth, ingenuity and intricacy of plot that has been born - in my opinion - from the style of Leopard Sword. The plot to this masterpiece moves us once more. The first three books had us in Northern Britannia, and the fourth shifted the action to the forests of Germany, while in this one, the poor beleaguered Tungrian cohorts are sent to Dacia modern Romania into the Carpathian mountains to provide defence for the gold mines that are essential for imperial revenue.
