The dawn of the 5th century AD, and the Roman Empire totters on the edge of the abyss. Already divided into two, the Imperium is looking dangerously vulnerable to her European rivals. The huge barbarian tribes of the Vandals and Visigoths sense that their time is upon them.
But, unbeknownst to all these great players, a new power is rising in the East. A strange nation of primitive horse-warriors has been striking terror on border peoples for fifty years. But few realise what is about to happen. For these so called 'Huns' now have a new leader. And his name is Attila - 'the Scourge of God.'
Thus begins a saga of warfare, lust and power which brought the whole of the Christian world to its knees - and ended in blood on the fields of France. It is a story of two men: Attila the Hun and Aetius the Roman. One who wanted to destroy the world, and one who fought one final battle to save it...

"The Knights of St John have made the rock their home. Centuries ago, Ottoman might expelled them from the holy land and now their old foe is near again. Thousands are coming to besiege this tiny island, with only a few hundred knights and local soldiers to stand in their way. Far away on English shores, Nicholas Ingoldsby knows nothing of the ties that bind him to this sun-parched land. But as all of Europe looks on, a few men will answer the Knights' call to arms. On that small rock an epic struggle with be played out - the story of men, warriors and slaves, but also the story of two worlds colliding"--P.  of cover.
