A big thank you to everyone who has helped A Dragon among the Eagles to get to #1 in three categories on Amazon.co.uk, and up there as well on Amazon.com over the last few weeks.

The support has been very humbling…

A Dragon among the Eagles – A Novel of the Roman Empire

The Legions are marching!

The prequel novel to the Eagles and Dragons series is now out on Amazon and Kobo!

Here is what it’s all about:

At the peak of Rome's might a dragon is born among eagles, an heir to a line both blessed and cursed by the Gods for ages.

In A.D. 197, Emperor Septimius Severus led one of the largest invasion forces in Rome’s history against the Parthian Empire.

Among the men of thirty-three legions is Lucius Metellus Anguis, a young man from an ancient Equestrian family. Against the wishes of his conservative father, Lucius is determined to pursue a career in the military and resurrect the glory of his family name on the battlefield rather than the marble of the Senate.

However, as in all conflicts, Lucius’ ideals and his faith are challenged as he witnesses the worst in humanity.

As the imperial legions fight their way through Mesopotamia to the Parthian capital of Ctesiphon, Lucius discovers the inner strength that may well ensure that this young dragon rises from the ranks of Rome’s eagles.

Can a man survive the trials of war unscathed? Do the Gods indeed favour the bold?

March to war with Rome’s legions and find out!


I’m very excited to put this book out into the world. It was quite the journey to research and write this novel. I hope you historical fiction/fantasy fans out there enjoy it!

A Dragon among the Eagles is a FREE download on Kobo, and .99 cents on Amazon (Amazon won’t allow it to be Free for now).

If you are so inclined, and if you are craving some adventure in the Roman Empire, check it out today!

Author of historical fantasy/fiction set in the Roman Empire and ancient Greece. writingthepastblog.blogspot.com - Tweet me @AdamHaviaras
Introduction

I am a writer of historical fiction/fantasy with Eagles and Dragons Publishing, trained as an historian and archaeologist. 

For as long as I can remember I have loved the past, stories of ancient peoples and places. Places are portals to the past and so I like nothing more than walking the ground of an ancient site, taking in the details and facts and then letting my imagination take over. 

One day I came to the realization that it would be a great thing to combine two of my favourite things, history and creative writing, to make the past accessible, thought provoking and above all, entertaining. I have studied ancient and medieval history and archaeology, and creative writing since 1991 and obtained an Honours B.A. from the University of Toronto, and a Masters from the University of St. Andrews, Scotland. My studies have focussed on ancient and medieval warfare with a very special interest in Arthurian studies.

I'm always interested in connecting with other history lovers, readers, writers and anyone who loves to create art. 

So, drop me a comment or stop by my blog to connect around the virtual hearth fire.

Cheers!
