- 5 Mushroom Heads
Usurper sees Darman at his best; he has got the mix of fast-flowing narrative and authentic military action spot on. This book follows Pacorus and his fellow Kings as they journey to Afghanistan for a royal wedding. Luckily, for battle-loving aficianados, disaster strikes and Pacorus is forced to defend the Parthian Empire from a new Eastern threat.
The story grips throughout and the detail keeps the reader in the moment. I read this book in three sittings - always a good sign! There is a good mix of well known characters and new blood which bodes well for future instalments in the series.
The book can be bought in Kindle format for £2.75 and in paperback for £11.76 on Prime.
If you haven't read the others in the series, start at the beginning and binge the full set!
