Publisher's Summary

Evil from beyond time...

The Malwa Empire squats like a toad across 6th century India, commanded by ruthless men with depraved appetites. The thing from the distant future that commands them is far worse. 

An advisor without a body...

Those who oppose the purulent hell the Malwa will make of Earth have sent a crystal, Aide, to halt their advance. Aide holds all human knowledge - but he cannot act by himself. 

A champion for all times...

Count Belisarius, the greatest general of the age and perhaps of all ages, must outwit the evil empire - and then, when there is no longer room to maneuver, to meet it sword-edge to sword-edge, because, no matter what it costs... 

...evil cannot be allowed to rule men!

I love this series, the writing is amazingly good

Drake is a master at bringing your intellect up and toilet humor altogether. I love the plot line and I can't wait to read the next book.

Incredible Alternate History

When you can make the military people believable, add humor, base it on actual history and culture you have done a remarkable job and Eric Flint did that with this book/series.

I Love It When a Plan Comes Together

This is the third book in the Belisarius series. The first wave is coming and Belisarius is sent on campaign to slow them down. Outnumbered 10-to-1, Belisarius will have to find a way to stop the Malwa juggernaut.

Belisarius is now in his element: at the helm of the Roman army. This book is where you get to see why Belisarius is considered the greatest General of his time.

Again, the story and military battles are excellent! My only gripe is that the authors forgot to include the maps and diagrams from the physical book as a PDF. It is so much easier to understand the troop movements if the maps were included. (I will try reaching out to Eric and David. Hopefully someone sees my message.)
