An Emperor for the Legion

An Emperor for the Legion

Tribune Marcus Scaurus, leader of a Roman legion that was mysteriously transported to a strange world of magic, decides to challenge Ortaias Sphrantzes, who has assumed the throne of Videssos, after using sorcery to murder the Emperor.
The Legion of Videssos

The Legion of Videssos

Since the Roman legion had been mysteriously transported to a world of magic, tribune Marcus Scaurus had served the rulers of war-torn Videssos well. He had ousted the Pretender and put Thorisin Gavras on the throne. That made him a hero. But in Rome or Videssos, Fortune was a fickle goddess. Now he and the legion were returning in triumph to the city of Videssos after defeating a powerful army of rebel mercenaries. But Marcus, betrayed by the one closest to him, was seized, dragged before the Emperor and questioned under the truth drug like a traitor. In court, only Alypia Gavra stuck by him – but consorting with the Emperor’s niece was dangerous. It could lead to exile – or death! Yet Alypia was beautiful. And Marcus was lonely…
Swords of the Legion

Swords of the Legion

In Videssos the city, tribune Marcus Scaurus was bored. The legion that had been magically transported to this strange world was far away. But the Emperor’s niece Alypia was near – and willing. When their secret trysts were betrayed, Emperor Thorisin Gavras was forced to condemn Marcus as a traitor – but with a promise of freedom and Alypia, if he could reclaim a rebel province from a fanatic usurper, with no military aid. With only centurion Gaius Philippus, Marcus set out to try the seemingly impossible task. But the fates conspired against them, driving them further westward, into the innermost sanctum of Videssos’ great enemy Yezd – and toward the torture chambers of the evil, deathless wizard-prince Avshar. But behind them, without orders, the men of the legion were on the march!
Krispos the Emperor

Krispos the Emperor

Krispos had seized the throne of Videssos as scarcely more than a peasant youth. With wit, luck, and magic, he had held it through a generation of turmoil. But now came his greatest challenge, as he struggled to save his empire from tearing itself asunder. For a strange heresy had taken root in the land, spreading secretly among peasants and zealots, among the poor and among the traitors. And all too soon, hidden dissent flared into open revolt. When Krispos led his legions against the rebels, his three sons rode at his side. Phostis, eldest of the princes, was expected to follow Krispos to the throne. But it was Phostis who had given the heretics a hearing, and now it was Phostis who disappeared into the rebel ranks. As the renegades seized their day, Krispos waged ever more desperate war against and implacable foe that would not scruple to set brother against brother, father against son…
Peregrine: Primus

Peregrine: Primus

Peregrine was the illigitimate son of the king of Sapodilla, which, as every schoolboy knows, was the last pagan kingdom in the world to resist Christianity. Cast out of Sapodilla as required by law when he reached his majority, Peregrine sallied forth into the Dark Ages with his page Dafty and the rather time-worn sorcerer Appledore to find his fortune. What he found instead was: dragons, whores, Huns, Roman legions, emperors, and a delightful collection of mysteries and adventures…
