Empire of Dragons
« on: November 15, 2007, 08:41:20 PM »
Only just found this guy, Valerio Massimo Manfredi, He has written a few that look like they will be right up my ally :)

I have just finished reading "empire of dragons".

Twelve or so Romans from a sieged  legion is captured by the Persians, taken deep into Persian territory. They then end up crossing China. There is a mixture of Roman resilience and virtue and Chinese qi and kungfu like arts. Traitors, loyal friendships, tyrants, romance even and diabolical nasties.
Nicely written IMO.
The runes they're ruined Ive ruined the runes.
