When the falcon has flown, the mountain lion will charge from the east, and all Byzantium will quake. Only one man can save the empire . . . the Haga! 

1046 AD. The Byzantine Empire teeters on full-blown war with the Seljuk Sultanate. In the borderlands of Eastern Anatolia, a land riven with bloodshed and doubt, young Apion's life is shattered in one swift and brutal Seljuk night raid. Only the benevolence of Mansur, a Seljuk farmer, offers him a second chance of happiness. Yet a hunger for revenge burns in Apion's soul, and he is drawn down a dark path that leads him right into the heart of a conflict that will echo through the ages.

About the author

Gordon is a Scottish writer, addicted to reading and writing historical fiction. His Legionary and Strategos novels have been an Amazon smash-hit, and have gone on to be translated and published in Russia, Italy and Greece.

 

Gordon's love of history was first kindled by the ruins of Hadrian's Wall and the Antonine Wall, and travelling around the ancient world has kept the fire burning brightly ever since. He finds the Late Roman Empire and Byzantine eras intriguing, particularly the metamorphosis from late antiquity into the 'dark ages' and the medieval period. Equally, the Bronze Age and Classical Greece are firm favourites of his.

A  mercilessly agonizing memory can sometimes break a person and render them incapable of facing even the commonplace without being unnerved.  Sometimes it can endow a person with near superhuman ability to take action in any circumstance.

You are in for a treat from The Queen of New Pulp Adventure! Vic Challenger always delivers fast-paced action, unpredictable adventure and adrenaline pumping fun!  Vic’s novels are not like anything you’ve read lately.  They are imaginative, prototypical tales like a clever friend might share over coffee and will enthrall you in unaccustomed ways, then compel  you to search for more! 

Visiting Africa in 1919, Vic brushes shoulders with death on more than one occasion  and everyone around her concludes she is uncannily calm and proficient in the face of the most horrible threats.  Vic understands their awe but to her it is second nature. She seems to have been born with the facility for adventure, yet  when she turned thirteen her skills did magnify and that’s when the eerie dreams began - dreams so vivid that she would wake with her body feeling their impact. She still had those dreams when she visited Africa and there nature conspired to solve their mystery.  Yet the solution was not a conclusion but a beginning.  It evoked a monumental quest which might take a lifetime and would likely lead Vic into every dangerous corner of Earth.  The first hurdle was to simply design a plan to make the quest successful and Vic had no ideas.  How was she going to find something she lost - on the day she died, 100,000 years ago?

Begin the adventure!  Discover the secret of Vic’s dreams and find out how Vic will search. Attempt to survive the wild Yucatan jungles of the 1920’s and learn the truth about thunderbirds. Experience the excitement today! Buy your copy of Time Doesn’t Matter now and begin the series.
