I discovered this author/book through Myeloma UK. I’m very into historical fiction, military. This was a great, technical, historically detailed short read. No idea what comes next in the series, but that’s the aim of a prequel. And whet my appetite it did!

I'm a Scottish writer, addicted to reading and writing historical fiction.

My love of history was first kindled by visits to the misty Roman ruins of Britain and the sun-baked antiquities of Turkey and Greece. My expeditions since have taken me all over the world and back and forth through time (metaphorically, at least), allowing me to write tales of the later Roman Empire, Byzantium, Classical G
