4th Century/Eastern Roman Empire

Gordon Doherty (Gordopolis), Legionary: Viper of the North - a story of the Roman border legions' struggle against the Gothic crossings of the Danube in 376AD.

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Deep winter, 376 AD: Emperor Valens has withdrawn the field armies from Moesia and Thracia to fight in the Persian War.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!

Swords of Rome

Swords of Rome - written by Christopher Lee Buckner

2nd century BC/Second Punic War

It is a time of great crisis and bloodshed as the two greatest powers of the ancient world - Carthage and Rome are locked in a deadly struggle for control over the Mediterranean. But for one young Roman soldier named Gaius who once dreamed of glory and honor, finds himself trapped between his duty to the Republic, and his heart, for in Rome is Julia, a childhood friend and the one woman who has given his life meaning. However, the daughter of the wealthy and influential senator, Terentius Varro has promised her to his political rival Lucius Aemilius Paullus, dividing Gaius’ loyalties as war ravages Italy, and as Rome faces one crushing defeat after another from Hannibal’s invading barbarian horde, Gaius stands to lose more than just his love and his life.

Set during the events of the Second Punic War, circa 218 – 201 BC, Swords of Rome is a sweeping military epic set against the backdrop of historic events and figures, fought during one of the ancient world’s greatest conflicts – a war that would see the end of one nation, and the rise of a new world super-power that would forever change the course of western civilization. This is the human story of this war and the people that fought it.
