Hi All,

Just a shout out to let you know that my new Legionary novel - 'Empire of Shades' - is out.
If you're not familiar with the series, it's Late Roman, and is set in the Eastern Empire during the time of Valens and Theodosius.
Here's the foxy cover art and a teaser intro :)
379 AD: Thracia has fallen to the Gothic horde…
With the ashes of Adrianople still swirling in the air, the Eastern Roman Empire is in turmoil. The emperor is dead, the throne lies empty and the remaining fragments of the army are few and scattered. Numerius Vitellius Pavo, now Tribunus of the XI Claudia, tries to hold his patchwork ranks together amidst the storm. One of the few legions to have survived the disaster at Adrianople, the Claudia do what they can to keep alive the dying flame of hope.
When word spreads of a new Eastern Emperor, those hopes rise. But the coming of this leader will stir the Gothic War to new heights. And it will cast Pavo headlong into the sights of the one responsible for the East’s plight – a man mighty and seemingly untouchable, and one who will surely crush any who dares to challenge him. From the ashes of Adrianople, new heroes will rise… with dark ghosts in close pursuit.
Paperback and eBook, available here:
And there's plenty of goodies - free samples, imagery and companion short stories etc - here:
If you decide to try, I hope you enjoy. Would be great to hear your thoughts too.
