Praise for Attila: The Judgment

“Alliances, betrayal, assassination, gory battles, torture and cruelty mark this blood-soaked historical, and Napier describes it all vividly and with sword-pounding impact.”
-- Publishers Weekly

"Rip-roaring...a tale jam-packed with epic set pieces, bloody blattles, a fair bit of history, and the requisite lusty interludes...[a] gripping novel."
--Daily Mail (UK)
"William Napier has a genius for making the blood-dimmed chaos of ancient history into the very stuff of thrilling narrative."
--Tom Holland, author of Rubicon and Persian Fire
