Brucius is dead, his legions destroyed. The Gai-Dubous are believed extinct and the Death Waker has not been seen in almost four years. And Andross the Invincible, the one who used the Orb of Torjen and took its curse upon himself, is presumed dead, though his body has never been found. Now a new threat has begun to form, climbing up from volcanic lands to replace the old dangers with even darker, more ancient ones. The kings of Upperworld, Bracchus and Korsoko among them, must stop rebuilding in order to defend their lands once again. Amidst the turmoil, the old group begins to form as rumors escalate that Andross is, indeed, still alive somewhere, but slowly dying. Ever-loyal to their old friend, the knights set forth to rescue the accursed Tribal, battling ogres, braving monsters and venturing into the foreboding city of the Death Waker, and finally down into the enigmatic depths of Lowerworld itself, where a dark shadow threatens all that lay within its reach. And in that journey, they will face not only the pain of their own individual pasts, but they will also learn the past of their own world, and struggle to maintain hope in a future that will change everything.

A meticulously detailed account of life as a Roman legionary in the last days of the Roman Empire—from battle to rations, camp duties to clothing In 400 AD, Roman rule in Britain was collapsing as the thinly stretched empire was besieged on all sides. This guide explores all aspects of Late Roman military life, from recruitment to weaponry, marriage to wages, warfare to religion. It explores the world of the Roman soldier through the eyes of one man, posted to a British garrison at the edge of the empire, and follows the soldier's life through training, battle, marriage, and business dealings, finally following him south as he leaves Britain for good in defense of Rome. When the legionary finally escapes the worst posting in the Roman Empire, it is only to join what effectively became a death march over the Alps, without food or shelter. Readers of this mesmerizing account will know what it was like to face the chanted battle cry and the charge and slashing axes of the Goths, and why the order "March out!" was so terrifying.

Simon Murray was nineteen when he joined the French Foreign Legion. Inspired by the romantic myths of Beau Geste, he found himself in the ranks of one of the world's greatest - and toughest - fighting forces. He kept a unique diary of the hard living, harsh discipline, and the military tradition of 'March or Die' which he turned into this gripping book. 'Simon Murray's personal account of a gently reared, well-educated British youth's coming of age in the French Foreign Legion has the drama, excitement and colour of a good guts-and-glory thriller . . . Murray is a talented storyteller, and his fellow legionnaires and their disciplined and proud Corps are vividly portrayed. I was hooked from the first page.' Dr Henry Kissinger 'One of the greatest adventure stories in recent years.' Chris Patten
