A closely fought race, treachery in a back alley, a visit to the shrine of an Egyptian Goddess. A Roman centurion discovers that Fate will always hold him in her power.
The German frontier, spring 6 BC. When Lucius Cominius Tullus, a recently promoted centurion, gambles on a foot race between rival legionaries, he has no idea that his wager will endanger his very life, and that the streets of an Empire border town can be as deadly as the bloodiest battlefield.
A prequel to Ben Kane’s dramatic new trilogy, Eagles at War, The Shrine also includes a sample chapter from the first book in the series.
A cracking short story from Ben Kane that delves into the past of a hero to be. Its definitely quirky, has a lot going for it and in some parts is reminiscent of David Gemmell’s fortune telling for Druss the Legend. All round, a read that not only drew you into Ben’s world but one that will act as a great way to start the cracking series. Back this up with solid prose and of course an author who knows how to weave a story and all round you’re in for a treat.
