Hannibal Barca: The Lion of Carthage by Peachill Publishing ( a collection of writers ) is a book I would file under "historical action novel" while sitting on the high-speed train traveling from Beijing to Zhenjiang engross in the pages of war and honor of a man taking on the much romanticize Roman Empire. After each chapter, I stop and reflect the action written so well, written without being dry and long-winded. Hannibal Barca pride himself in defense of Carthage and understood what it took to defeat Rome. Some titles are given, and some are earned the title of "The Lion of Carthage" is a heavy burden for a son of an overshadowing general within these pages of this book the title of "Lion" is well deserved. In the mist of battles, Hannibal rallies his man to be honorable and defeat Rome, “Hannibal raised his sword and rushed back toward the front lines, yelling as he went. “To the river, men! Send them floating back to Rome!” Far removed we are from history and understanding the sheer madness of the criminal empire of Rome. We know the actual ending of Carthage. The eventuality of Carthage being lost forever due to Roman's campaign of total salt the Earth destruction but just as the Celt's legendary tales that mystify us in asking how did they win the battles against the "Roman Might" or in Hannibal's case crossing the Alps in harsh conditions. Hannibal's crazy outside the box thinking establishes that Africa had great generals who believe in defending their home. With Peachill Publishing outstanding work on Hannibal Barca: The Lion of Carthage someone needs to base a screenplay from this source and make an epic movie. I would love to take my son "Hannibal" and say "look at this movie of this heroic man, I named you after him and not the cannibal people assume."

    “Aut viam inveniam aut faciam” a.k.a. “I will either find a way or make one”... the famous saying of Hannibal while crossing the Alps is one of my life mottos and carved permanently on my shoulder.

I kept wondering what would happen next. I enjoy historical fiction and this book did not dissapoint. Peachill, the writers of this book, is a collection of different writers who contributed to the writing of this book. Being that it was written by many different people, I wasn't sure if it would flow well throughout the story. I was wrong, this book flowed beautifully from one chapter to the next. I also like the idea that this book was written by multiple authors and done so well. I would recommend this book to fans of historical fiction. I loved it and can't wait to read more from "Peachill". I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with a review copy of this book in exchange for my honest and unbiased opinion of it.

    I received this book through Goodreads First Reads and am grateful for the opportunity. I found the book to be an enjoyable and compelling depiction of the Second Punic War, and I generally had no issues with the content. The only issue I really had was the limits to the content.

I found the book to be an enjoyable and compelling depiction of the Second Punic War, and I generally had no issues with the content. The only issue I really had was the limits to the content. The Punic Wars were epic affairs, and while I appreciated the book's narrative of the events, I still felt that it had the potential to cover a lot more. The chapter set-up, with some chapters being only a couple pages or paragraphs in length, gave a sense of haste to the book as a whole and inhibited its ability to go into depth on key parts of the struggle. For instance, the abrupt jump from the end of the war to Scipio razing Carthage - and said chapter being only one page, undercut the emotions for those scenes. Nevertheless, the characters were interesting and I enjoyed reading about the war and politics.

    This is another awesome book by Peachill. It had me on the edge of my seat, lots of action and nail biting moments, respect, family and love. I could not put it down; I read it in one sitting. Very well written that made you feel you were right there alongside the characters. Whether you are a fan of history or not, I highly recommend Peachill!

    I gave this book a 5 star rating because it is truly one of the best historical novels I've had the pleasure of reading. The detail is top notch to the point you feel you are literally right there with the characters. It is one of the most well written stories I've read in a long time. I wasn't sure how I would take to the concept of writing and was thoroughly and pleasantly surprised. Consider me a fan!
