Synopsis of book»

During the sixth century of the Byzantium Empire, corruption is rife. The country is in turmoil and Flavius Belisarius, steeped in military lore, expects to join his father’s cohort, as have his three brothers, to help protect the border of the Eastern Empire.

Flavius’s father Decimus is the Governor of Dorostorum city, and has two goals: to keep out the Sklaveni barbarians and to expose the deep roots of secular corruption. Seeking to prevent a Sklaveni raid, Decimus asks the powerful magnate, Senuthius Vicinus, for help. Vicinus’s debauchery is widespread but his support is crucial to win the battle.

But treachery leads to the death of Flavius’s family. With his life changed forever Flavius swears vengeance on the man that betrayed his father and begins a journey from which there is no way back.

Vengeance is the first chapter in a thrilling trilogy of deceit,of battles won and lost, of betrayal and revenge, as a youth grows into manhood in the cauldron of an empire riven by dispute.

'Set in the sixth century,Flavius Belisarius is the 15-year-old son of centurion Decimus Belisarius, the governor of the city of Dorostorum. But when his father and three brothers are killed, Flavius discovers that they were betrayed. He flees the city with Ohannes, his father’s trusted servant, and begins a journey that takes him into enemy territory, the Roman army, and the great city of Constantinople. A fast-paced novel to introduce the trilogy, this book covers Flavius’ early life, and further volumes will no doubt see him mature and grow, which, upon reading this first book, is a mouth-watering prospect'Aberdeen Press and Journal
