The historical fiction genre welcomes a new author into the field. The first book in Rafael Scott's trilogy "Lion's Brood: The Story of Hannibal " promises exciting new material in a genre that is too often ignored. The story of Hannibal Barca and the Second Punic War is fast paced action from start to finish. The story begins with Hannibal's father, Hamilcar, and his obsession with Rome, which filters through to his oldest son. The circumstances of Hamilcar's defeat at the end of the First Punic War are well conveyed, and the story flows easily from humiliation from defeat to the quest for vengeance. With the death of Hamilcar, Hannibal comes to prominence in the Carthaginian world and the stage is set for the invasion of Italy and the Second Punic War.
