    Summary

    An account of old Aquila's last battle : the Battle of Badon Hill, which led to forty years of peace between Saxon and Briton.

    Aquila is the protagonist of The Lantern Bearers, which tells how his father's Roman British farm was burned by Saxon raiders, how he was seized as a thrall, returned to Britain, escaped and became one of the High King Ambrosius's commanders against the invading Saxon threat. There he met Ambrosius's young nephew Artos - who we now know as King Arthur.

    When Ambrosius died, Artos took over as the leader of the remnant of Roman Britain, and Aquila went with him to fight at the great battle of Badon Hill, as the commander of what had been the High King Ambrosius's bodyguard. Thanks to Carmarthen for last minute beta reading.

    Summary

    Zufrieden lehnte ich mich an eine große Eiche und genoss die Sonnenstrahlen, die schräg von einem beinahe wolkenlosen Himmel einfielen. Doch plötzlich wurde meine Ruhe gestört. Unwirsch sah ich mich um, da lautes Rufen, Waffengeklirr und aufgeregtes Pferdewiehern von der anderen Seite der Lichtung erschollen.

    Summary

    Sollemnis Populusque Romanus

    The year is AD 68. Emperor Nero is on the throne, the Judaean Revolt is nearing its end under the firm hands of Vespasian and his son Titus, and Marcus Caelius Piso Vannus, son of a British freedman and former surgeon to the Fifteenth Apollonian Legion, has just returned from the provinces with an injured shoulder and no veteran's benefits to rent a shabby room in the shadow of the city wall. Thrust into his life, however, comes Amulius Cornelius Celatus -- a noble man from an ancient family, with good hair, a better toga, and the biggest ego this side of the Tiber. You wouldn't think they'd end up living together, let alone fighting crime; but then, neither would you think that one shadowy criminal figure orchestrated the fire of 64...
