Fabius's success brings him admiration and respect, but also attracts greed and jealousy - the closest allies can become the bitterest of enemies. And then there is Julia, of the Caesar family - a dark horse in love with both Fabius and his rival Paullus - who causes a vicious feud. Ultimately for Fabius, it will come down to one question: how much is he prepared to sacrifice for his vision of Rome? Inspired by Total War: Rome II, the bestselling Total War series, Destroy Carthage is the first in an epic series of novels. Not only the tale of one man's fate, it is also a journey to the core of Roman times, through the world of extraordinary military tactics and political intrigue that Rome's warriors and citizens used to cheat death."--Page 4 of cover

"Sword of Attila begins with the fall of Carthage to the Vandals in AD 439. Rome has already been sacked by the Goths, Britain has been abandoned and the empire in the west is feeling the brunt of barbarian invasions laying waste to the provinces and leading to uneasy alliances with Germanic warlords. As the last remaining Romans flee Africa, a new and more ominous threat emerges, to Romans and their new allies alike - a power from the east like no other since the days of the Persian empire, the Hun army under their general Attila. Can a small band of Roman officers, steeped in the tradition of the old ways, admirers of Polybius and Scipio and Caesar, bring back to Roman arms the glory that once made her great? Or is the idea of Rome now lost to history, a Rome where every second legionary is a barbarian, where it is the new warlords who see themselves as the true inheritors of Roman military glory? Inspired by Total War: Rome II, from the bestselling Total War series, Sword of Atilla is the second installment in an epic series of novels. Only one final battle will tell, a battle that the last dying Sibyl had foretold would see the earth dry up and the rivers be replaced with torrents of gore, where the victors would be the ones who drank their own blood ."--
