Victorian era England/ Egypt, solving mysteries.
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!

England, 1189. A new king has just been crowned.
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!

Somewhere outside Babylonia 680 BCE. Sennacherib just been murdered and Esarhaddon is having trouble up North. Cimmerians again and not a Conan in sight.

Just north of Richmond, Virginia, at the time of Gabriel's Rebellion. I never could believe this story had not been written. It has now, by Gigi Amateau. Well worth the read. Gigi was kind enough to sign two copies for me recently; one for myself, and one for my niece, with whom I have walked the land Gabriel walked.
