The Judas Scrolls : When the Judas Scrolls Rise Brutal Civil War Follows.
As the Roman Empire crumbles and barbarians settle in the provinces, Marcus Astorius, a soldier and part-time assassin works for the Praeses, the Governor of Hispania Carthaginiensis. The Praeses sends him to retrieve the stolen Judas Scrolls - an heretical chapter of the Bible, lest it cause unrest in the province. When a vision appears before him he withdraws, defeated and bewildered. Disgraced and dismissed from service he farms and breeds horses with his son Julius, but his past will not relinquish him so easily. Sheltering an heretical priest, he invokes the wrath of the Praeses and fleeing with his son, he becomes a reluctant supporter of Sophia, the beautiful queen of the Arevaci tribe, in the northern city of Clunia. There, against all odds, besieged by a Roman legion, he finally comes to terms with whom he his and what he truly believes in.

About MR Fredrik Nath
Fred Nath is a full time Neurosurgeon. Fred was born in Sweden and brought up in London and has worked in Liverpool, Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Glasgow in his training (a long, long time ago). He lives in the northeast of England with his teenage daughter; his three sons having grown up and flown the coop. In the last twenty-six years he's run twenty-five Great North Run half-marathons, trekked Island Peak to 6000m in Nepal, crossed the highest mountain pass in the world (also in Nepal) [which you can see on You-tube], done a 12,000ft tandem parachute jump and began writing, like John Buchan, "because he ran out of penny-novels to read and felt he should write his own." Fred loves a good story, which is why he writes. To date, he has had published five French resistance thrillers, three books in the Galdir series and the first instalment of a four book series 'Amulet' has recently appeared in print - all published by Fingerpress publishers. How does he find time to write? Get up a bit earlier and go to bed a bit later - sleep makes you unproductive! He also loves the Dordogne, French wine and a good family getogether!
