Join us to celebrate the launch of Snorri Kristjánsson's new historical novel, The Hidden Legion - Book One in The Blood Dawn Trilogy, about a rag-tag bunch of renegades secretly defending the Roman Empire against mythological monsters.
About the Book:
A bold new historical fantasy of Gods and monsters, of Heroes and Soldiers. A story of the Roman Empire as never before.
DEATH HAS COME TO AEMILIUS.
It is the twentieth year of the reign of Emperor Tiberius Caesar Augustus. The Empire spans the known world. No power is greater, and nothing can threaten the peace it brings. And no one must know of the horrors that haunt it.
Aemilius thought he would die heroically in battle like his forefathers, mourned by a loving wife and many children, but he’s barely a man when a harpy flies down out of the old myths and knocks him from his horse. Stunned and helpless, he waits for his end… and is saved.
Formed on the bloody battlefield of Teutoburg, the Hidden Legion are an order of soldiers, magicians, and rogues so secret that the Empire itself would hunt them down if they were exposed. And now Aemilius is one of them.
A darkness is growing across the Empire, and someone is setting traps for the Legion themselves. Aemilius and his new comrades set off on the hunt for an unknown enemy…
About the Author:
A teacher, a stand-up comic, former cement packing factory worker and graduate of the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts, Snorri Kristjánsson also writes things. Sometimes they are books (mainly about Vikings), sometimes they are films (mainly not about Vikings) or silly stage plays (you probably don't want to know, to be honest). He now spends his days working with words, eating cakes and teaching Drama.
