Published by Trafford
Following the forced exile
Cethen Lamh-fada and his family by the Ninth Hispana
Legion, (as told in Eboracvm, The Village), the book
Eboracvm, The Fortress continues the story as their
children come of age. As the fate of both generations grows
inexorably entwined with that of their Roman counterpart, the
legate Gaius Sabinius and his son Marcus, each must decide
where true loyalty lies; and, in so doing, deal with the inevitable
consequence. As their cultures clash, both sides find themselves
drawn further and further northward, one pursued, the other
the pursuer, in a surprisingly ironic twist of fortunes. According
to history, the outcome of the extended campaign of General
Gnaeus Julius Agricola seemed inevitable in its conclusion; but
defeat is a personal thing, and not always total. In the long run,
the final battle at Mons Graupius settled nothing; in the short
run, it was a Ôright buggerÕ for both sides, but mainly for the
families of people such as Cethen Lamh-Fada, and his sharp
witted wife, Elena.
Laced with action and turmoil, plus a dose of hard romance, the
narrative is told with a dark humour that highlights the never
ending ironies of choice, many of them strikingly familiar today.
In the words of Marg Gilks, author and editor: The characters live
and breathe on the page, moving through meticulously researched
and vividly described settings that not only bring the ancient
world to life, but show the reader that some aspects of the human
condition transcend time.
