Britannia: Part II free pdf 'We are the watchmen- the keepers of the flame.' Britannia in the late fourth century is a wild, dark place and the Pax Romana that has held for three hundred years is crumbling. Justinus Coelius is commander of the Wall and he is facing invasion from Saxons and treachery from within. Leocadius Honorius is consul of Londinium, but his fragile grasp on his lifestyle is broken when he plays dice with the wrong people. Vitalis Celatius just wants a quiet, peaceful life but his sister Conchessa is desperate to find her husband who has fallen foul of the Emperor. And the Emperor is about to face a challenge from Magnus Maximus, the general who takes Britannia's legions to overthrow him. Celtic legend, Egyptian mysticism and Gaelic battle-fury are all interwoven in this dark tale. The surviving Heroes of the Wall are once again thrown into the melting pot of history. How many of them will still be standing at the end?

About Richard Denham

Richard Denham Richard Denham was born in the military town of Aldershot, the son of a sergeant in the British Army and now lives in Farnborough. Ever since studying the Romans at school, he has taken a keen interest in them, specifically Romans in Britain. As a boy growing up with swords, knights, tanks and all things military he also developed an interest in the legends of King Arthur. Being self taught and very demoralised by the romantic fairytales, he discovered to his delight that the "real world" was in fact much more interesting and linked to Roman Britain, proving yet again that the truth is both stranger and more fascinating than fiction. The inspiration for the Britannia series was the cold, impassive footnote Richard would constantly come across "Romans leave Britain." This would have been, for those who lived it, an apocalyptic time never known before- with the Romans having lived, fought, laughed, married and raised children on our island, "leaving" could never be as simple as that. He more or less decided then and there that he would write a series of books one day, shining a light onto this forgotten time. This might have remained an idea for "sometime in the future" until chance meeting with well-established author and historian M.J Trow made it all seem possible. From this meeting came a collaboration resulting in "The Wall." M J Trow A bestselling author of over sixty books, including forty novels, Mei Trow is nevertheless always looking for the next new idea. A military historian by training and consummate story-teller by inclination, he had never thought of writing about the Romans' last hurrah in Britain until he met Richard Denham and then it seemed an obvious subject for a blockbusting series. Using Richard Denham's exhaustive knowledge and his own wide-ranging grasp of history, Mei has brought his skill in bringing the past to life to the table in this collaboration. Reviewers have often mentioned how he makes historical characters seem as though the past is "now" and not a dusty "then" and he has made this as true for fourth century Britain as for Tudor or Victorian England (the Marlowe and the Lestrade series). As a history teacher for more years than he cares to remember, making the past live is his passion and nothing pleases him more than the many reviews that say "I wish he had been my History teacher!"
