Description

<p><b>A powerful new novel set in the fourth-century Roman Empire by critically acciaimed historical novelist Simon Turney, <i>Para Bellum</i> will delight fans of Scarrow, Kane and Cornwell.</b></p><p>AD 381. Five years have gone by since a Roman governor ordered the deaths of a Gothic king and his attendants at a feast in their honour. This disastrous act led to warfare in the Roman Empire and the death of the Emperor Valens.</p><p>Now, the Empire is calm once more, but for the eight legionaries who committed the killings, the bloodshed is only just beginning. Fritigern, brother of the murdered king, has sworn revenge on his brother's killers. Now king of a powerful Gothic tribe, he will not rest until the men are hunted down.</p><p>Flavius Focalis is one of those legionaries. Surviving an attack at his villa, he realises the danger he and his family are in, and seeks to warn his former comrades, for he knows Fritigern will give them no quarter. So begins a deadly game of cat-and-mouse across the Empire, as, by land and sea, the former soldiers face the wrath of their implacable enemy, and return to the scene of the greatest battle of their age: Adrianople. For war is coming again – and the only question is, do they die now, or die later?</p>
