Still in England. Simultaneously in the 5th, 9th, and 14th centuries.
Into battle we ride with Gods by our side
We are strong and not afraid to die
We have an urge to kill and our lust for blood has to be fulfilled
WE´LL FIGHT TILL THE END! And send our enemies straight to Hell!

Nope. Three different series that I'm reading (all at once, 'cause I tend to do that.)

Yum! I've been to Rome and can vouch for the food, not too sure about the men though ;)
