Roman - The Fall of Britannia - K.M. Ashman (29
Britannia. The last unconquered stronghold of the Celts and a
land of gold and slaves. A dangerous place of men without fear,
led by mystical Druid warriors, yet still to face the might of
Rome in the unrelenting expansion of the Empire. Four Roman legions
have assembled in Gaul undertaking final preparations for the
invasion of Britannia and two young men are posted to a training
cohort under the sadistic tutorage of battle scarred veteran,
Remus. The training is brutal but eventually the trainees find
themselves involved in their first campaign, The invasion of Britannia.
The legions invade in a frenzy of brutality and one of the defending
Celtic warriors is forced to flee the battle to embark on a frantic
rescue mission to the isle of Druids, where a young girl is due
to be sacrificed. Meanwhile a cohort of legionaries under the
command of Remus is tasked with finding the source of the Celtic
gold. The Romans find themselves in strange and unfriendly environment
and as they close in on their quarry, the fates of all four men
become intertwined and a long held secret revealed, culminating
in a savage climax that affects the very future of Britannia.

Eskkar & Trella - The Beginning (The Eskkar Saga/1)
- Sam Barone (1er février 2012)
Eskkar & Trella - The Beginning is the latest novel
in Sam Barone's five part series, a bronze age historical saga
in the tradition of Conn Iggulden, Bernard Cornwell and Jean Auel.
In Dawn of Empire, Eskkar the warrior and Trella the keen-witted
slave girl come together in a mighty struggle to survive a barbarian
invasion and build mankind's first walled city. But Eskkar's story
began many years earlier, when his family was brutally murdered
in a blood feud. His name and heritage obliterated, young Eskkar
flees his clan and the only life he knows. Condemned as an outcast,
he learns to survive, hunted by his own kind, and hated and feared
by all others.
For fifteen years, Eskkar wanders the Land Between the Rivers,
home of his hereditary enemies, fighting to stay alive and to
reach manhood. All the while he is learning the skills that will
one day make him not only a true warrior, but a leader of men
on and off the battlefield.
Trella, too, witnesses her family destroyed in a single night
of vengeance, and her life of ease and privilege lost. Captured
and sold to a slave trader, she must use her keen mind, extraordinary
perception, and perfect memory to regain control of her life.
While appearing to serve her masters, Trella learns to manipulate
the powerful men who now own her body. Soon she becomes the unseen
influence whose knowledge and training guide the way to the founding
of an empire.
Eskkar and Trella join together and form a unique bond that enables
them to overcome the limits their world has placed upon them.
These are the stories of their journeys toward one another and
to their shared destiny - an enduring love that changes civilization
Dawn of Empire (The Eskkar Saga/2) - Sam Barone
(24 avril 2008)
Three thousand years before the birth of Christ. An epic conflict
is about to begin. The price of victory ? Civilization. The price
of defeat, a return to the dark ages.
The hopes of civilization rest on one man's shoulders: Eskkar,
once a barbarian, nowa warrior in charge of defending a small
town which lies in the path of a vastbarbarian war party. The
last time the invaders came to Orak, they spared no one and the
tiny candle of trade and agriculture that had begun there, the
first in all of human history, was extinguished.
But Eskkar and Trella, the beautiful slave girl he has been given
by the grateful townsfolk, and the raggle-taggle army he has inherited
are not going to flee. They will fight against the overwhelming
odds with foolhardy bravery, subtle ingenuity and the last drop
of their blood. On this tiny band the lathe of history will turn:
victory or darkness ?
Empire Rising (The Eskkar Saga/3) - Sam Barone
(5 mars 2009)
3157 BC. At the eastern edge of the great southern desert in Mesopotamia,
men are at war. Roaming bandits desperate for food, water, women,
and slaves ravage vulnerable town. Yet one thing eludes them:
gold. A rogue named Ariamus has joined forces with Korthac, a
fierce bandit who saved his life, and together they set their
sights on the impenetrable walled city of of Akkad, ruled by the
former barbarian Eskkar and his enchanting wife Trella.
Korthac devises a brilliant plan to conquer the city from within.
Slipping into Akkad in disguise, he will gradually win the trust
of Trella. While Eskkar is away, bringing other towns into his
burgeoning empire, Korthac and Ariamus will strike, wreaking havoc
on the city in a way it never expects.
Told with rich historical detail and full of violence, sex, passion,
and battles reminiscent of the best of Bernard Cornwell, The
Road to Empire is a marvelous trip into the past.
Quest for Honour (The Eskkar Saga/4) - Sam Barone
(2 septembre 2010)
At the dawn of history, an epic war is about to begin in the deadly
quest for honour.
The city of Sumer, ruled by a brutal murderer and his vicious,
power hungry sister, is poised to give birth to the mightiest
empire in history. No one stands a chance as it brings a bloody
war to all those who stand in its way, determined to crush and
enslave those on its borders.
The little city state of Akkad must prepare its fledgling nation
to fight for its very survival. Akkad's warriors are a loyal and
courageous brotherhood, but this is not a battle of villages or
of roving warrior bands; it is a battle for Empire and a fight
to the death...
Battle for Empire (The Eskkar Saga/5) - Sam Barone
(2 mai 2013)
Battle for Empire is the latest novel in Sam Barone's six
part series, a bronze age historical saga in the tradition of
Conn Iggulden, Bernard Cornwell, and Jean Auel. In Dawn of
Empire, Eskkar the warrior and Trella the slave girl come
together in a mighty struggle to survive a barbarian invasion
and build mankind's first walled city. Fifteen years have passed,
and under Trella's guidance, Akkad has become the most prosperous
and powerful city in the Land Between the Rivers. Now Eskkar and
Trella face new menaces to their growing empire - an invasion
from the north, the return of the hostile steppes horsemen, and
their rebellious son, Sargon, who threatens to destroy everything
his parents have worked so hard to create. Eskkar must face his
former clan in a battle that only one side can survive. Meanwhile,
his son Sargon, instead of preparing for his role as heir to the
throne, falls deeper into idleness and disrepute. In desperation,
his parents banish Sargon, sending him to the barbarian warriors
of the steppes to learn honor or die. But even as he dreams of
taking power from his parents, Sargon encounters Tashanella, the
beautiful and gifted daughter of the clan's chief. She shows Sargon
a different path to the future. When he is suddenly thrust into
battle, Sargon discovers that he must learn the way of the warrior
not only to survive, but to save Tashanella's life, and the city
of Akkad. As Eskkar and Trella deal with the northern invasion,
Bracca, Eskkar's companion from the old days, risks his life to
bring warning of yet another danger. The mighty Elamite Empire,
the near mythical land beyond the mountains, has cast its eyes
on the riches of the Land Between the Rivers. The Elamites must
expand to survive, and they, too, plan to invade the Land Between
the Rivers and reduce its people to slavery. Eskkar and Trella
must find some way to defeat this vastly superior force, not of
untrained barbarian hordes, but skilled soldiers led by experienced
conquerors. All of Eskkar's battle skills will be put to the test.
And Sargon becomes the reluctant warrior who holds the key not
only to Akkad salvation, but to his parents' survival.
Eskkar & Bracca - Rogue Warriors/1 (The Eskkar
Saga) - Sam Barone (12 juillet 2013)
At the start of the Bronze Age, the first walled city arose in
The Land Between the Rivers. This city, Akkad, would create the
world's first empire, and Eskkar the outcast barbarian would play
a leading role. But in the years before the founding of Akkad,
Eskkar would wander the land, struggling to stay alive. His only
friend and companion, Bracca, a Sumerian thief, accompanied him.
Together they shared danger as they traveled from one adventure
to the next, almost always pursed by some angry group of villagers.
In one of those adventures, Eskkar is reunited with Iltani.
He'd saved her from bandits while still a boy. Now he has to fight
to protect her again, this time from land hungry murderers who
want her farm.

De la [Grande-]Bretagne des Âges Sombres
à l'évangélisation de la Hesse, J.H. Clay
arpente le Haut-Moyen Âge.
I was born in Birmingham in 1980, and spent much
of my childhood, it seems, clambering around ancient ruins on
family days out. This obviously made an impression, since in 1998
I headed off to the University of York to study archaeology, and
then spent a couple of years as a professional archaeologist in
the Republic of Ireland.
Digging by day and teaching myself Latin before a peat fire by
night, I plotted my return to university. In 2004 I began my PhD
at the Centre for Medieval Studies in York, and spent the next
few years studying Anglo-Saxon missionaries in Germany. I also
lived for a while in Utrecht and Vienna, and excavated in Mexico,
before being appointed Lecturer in Medieval History at Durham
But all this time there was another story that just wouldn't let
me go - a tale of adventure and romance set in late Roman Britain.
Eventually it emerged as my first novel, The Lion and the Lamb,
which was published in 2013.
I can see many other novels to come, all exploring the mysterious
world of Late Antiquity - the time of a crumbling empire, and
the emergence of a new world of barbarian kings, warfare, and
vibrant art; the time commonly known as the Dark Ages...

Condemned to a hovel, beaten by a merciless commander, crushed
by the weather and forced to survive on starvation rations: no
one looking at Paul would ever guess that he is heir to one of
Roman Britain's wealthiest families. But Paul had his reasons
for joining the army and fleeing the family he loves.
But when rumours of a barbarian uprising from beyond the Wall
begin to circulate, Paul realises that his family is in grave
With only the former slave-girl Eachna for company, Paul deserts
the army, for which the penalty is death, and undertakes a hazardous
journey across Britain where danger lurks round every corner.
Epic in scope, rich with historical detail, The Lion and the
Lamb is a novel of Roman Britain on the cusp of the Dark Ages,
when all that stands between her citizens and oblivion is one

The Last Conquest - Berwick Coates
(12 septembre 2013)
Hastings, October 1066. The Normans have landed in Sussex, ready
for battle. They have prepared for everything about the English
- except their absence... Their enemy, King Harold and his fyrd,
are hundreds of miles away, fighting to expel the Viking host
in the north. But they have heard that William has landed and
rumour is that they are marching back, triumphant and dangerous
- and spoiling for a second victory. Back in Sussex, Gilbert,
a young scout in William's army, is sent out in search of the
enemy. He is dedicated and ambitious, and determined to be the
first with news for his leader. Deep in the English countryside,
Edwin, houndsman to King Harold, longs too for glory. He has missed
the first battle against the Vikings, but he will not miss the
second. He knows his king is about to make history, and he is
going to be part of it. And as the action sweeps up towards the
hilltop close to Hastings where Harold will plant his standard
- defying the Bastard of Normandy to come and get it - the ground
is laid for battle. This is the story of the greatest battle ever
seen on British soil and of the men who fought it. This is the
story of the Battle of Hastings.

Enemies at Home. A Flavia Albia Mystery
(Flavia Albia Mysteries) - Lindsey Davis (10 juin 2014)
From renowned author Lindsey Davis, creator of the much-loved
character, Marcus Didius Falco and his friends and family, comes
the second novel in her all-new series set in Ancient Rome. We
first met Flavia Albia, Falco's feisty adopted daughter, in The
Ides of April. Albia is a remarkable woman in what is very
much a man's world: young, widowed and fiercely independent, she
lives alone on the Aventine Hill in Rome and makes a good living
as a hired investigator. An outsider in more ways than one, Albia
has unique insight into life in ancient Rome, and she puts it
to good use going places no man could go, and asking questions
no man could ask. Even as the dust settles from her last case,
Albia finds herself once again drawn into a web of lies an intrigue.
A mysterious death at a local villa begs may be murder and, as
the household slaves are implicated, Albia is once again forced
to involve herself. Her fight is not just for truth and justice,
however; this time, she's also battling for the very lives of
people who can't fight for themselves. Enemies at Home presents
Ancient Rome as only Lindsey Davis can, offering wit, intrigue,
action and the further adventures of a brilliant new heroine who
promises to be as celebrated as Marcus Didius Falco and Helena
Justina, her fictional predecessors.

I'm a Scottish writer, addicted to reading and writing
historical fiction. My love of history was piqued during spells
living and working close to both Hadrian's Wall and the Antonine
Wall, sites of rich history winding back through thousands of
years. The later Roman Empire and Byzantium hold a particular
fascination for me.
I list many fine authors amongst my influences, including: Simon
Scarrow, David Gemmell, Sam Barone, Conn Iggulden, Simon Turney,
Bernard Cornwell, Ben Kane & Valerio Massimo Manfredi. I also
enjoy reading and writing sci-fi and black comedy.
My Legionary series is set in the Eastern Roman Empire

(6 juin 2011)
The Roman Empire is crumbling, and a shadow looms in the east...
376 AD: the Eastern Roman Empire is alone against the tide of
barbarians swelling on her borders. Emperor Valens juggles the
paltry border defences to stave off invasion from the Goths north
of the Danube. Meanwhile, in Constantinople, a pact between faith
and politics spawns a lethal plot that will bring the dark and
massive hordes from the east crashing down on these struggling
The fates conspire to see Numerius Vitellius Pavo,
enslaved as a boy after the death of his legionary father, thrust
into the limitanei, the border legions, just before they are sent
to recapture the long-lost eastern Kingdom of Bosporus. He is
cast into the jaws of this plot, so twisted that the survival
of the entire Roman world hangs in the balance...
Viper of the North (Legionary/2) -

The Danubian frontier is weaker than ever, and a storm is gathering
in the north...
Deep winter, 376 AD: Emperor Valens has withdrawn the field armies
from Moesia and Thracia to fight in the Persian War. The impoverished
limitanei legions left behind to defend the banks of the
River Danubius are now all that stand between the war-hungry Goths
and heart of the Eastern Roman Empire.
For Numerius Vitellius Pavo and the men of the XI
Claudia, the brief from Emperor Valens is simple: to avoid
war with the Goths at all costs while the Roman defences are so
weak. But in the frozen lands north of the Danubius a dark legend,
thought long dead, has risen again. The name is on the lips of
every warrior in Gutthiuda; the one who will unite the tribes,
the one whose armies will march upon the empire, the one who will
bathe in Roman blood...
The Viper !
Land of the Sacred Fire (Legionary/3)
- Gordon Doherty (28 octobre 2013)
The empire is on its knees, but a last hope lies beyond the
377 AD: Emperor Valens has stripped the Persian frontier of its
legions, sending every available man to Thracia in an effort to
contain the rampaging Gothic hordes. Now, covetous eyes have fallen
upon Rome's trade-rich but sparsely defended desert provinces.
Shapur II, Shahanshah of the Sassanid Empire and his many client
kings have long believed Rome's eastern holdings to be theirs
by ancestral right, and those lands have never been more vulnerable.
Thus, Valens must grasp at the slimmest of hopes that a Persian
invasion can be staved off, not by the brute force of absent legions,
but by the tenacity of a hardy few. For in the heart of enemy
lands, something thought long lost might just offer salvation.
When Optio Numerius Vitellius Pavo and a select
group of the XI Claudia are summoned to the Persian front, they
leave Thracia behind, knowing little of what awaits them. They
know only that they are to march into a burning land of strange
gods. They whisper tales of the mighty Persian Savaran cavalry
and pray to Mithras they will see their homes and families again.
All too soon it becomes clear to them that this is no ordinary
mission - indeed, the very fate of the empire might rest upon
their efforts. But for Pavo the burden is weightier still, for
he knows that the east also holds something even more precious
to him... the truth about his father.
