Synopsis

‘Carrhae’ is the fourth and final instalment in the Parthian Chronicles, the adventures of King Pacorus of Dura. It follows on from ‘Parthian Vengeance’.

The great Parthian Civil War is over, leaving behind an empire exhausted by years of bloodshed. After the murderous Battle of Susa, King Pacorus has returned to Dura with a heavy heart. He hopes that Parthia can at last look forward to peace and a united empire under King of Kings Orodes. But no sooner have hostilities ended than Armenia, the client state of Rome, declares war on the empire. Its king, Tigranes, unleashes his army against Parthia. In reply Pacorus must march north to defend Hatra, the city of his birth. But before he can do so he is forced to deal with an enemy army threatening Dura’s western frontier as the Romans seek to seize the caravan city of Palmyra.

Even Dura’s mighty army cannot stave off a series of defeats as the enemies of Parthia circle the empire like hungry wolves. And Pacorus knows that Marcus Licinius Crassus is marching east to extend Rome’s rule from the Euphrates to the Indus and enslave the whole of Parthia.

The scene is set for a showdown on the battlefield of Carrhae, a clash that will decide the destinies of two empires and two men.

These four books have quickly vaulted to the top of my must-read list. The ending of the series had me crying like a baby. Truly a great take on the Parthian Wars.

This is the best of the series. Even though the author takes significant liberties with historical facts, primarily concerning Parthian historical characters such as Surena, the story is much better written and gripping. The character development is more mature and the triumphs and tragedies more moving. Well worth the read.
