A LIGHT IN THE DARK AGES SERIES

This three-book series presents an imagined history of life in Britannia in the Fifth century in the years after the Romans departed. This is the Dark Ages, a time of myths and legends, that builds to the greatest legend of all – King Arthur. The series is complete, following the launch of Uther’s Destiny in March 2018.

Uther’s Destiny – Book three in the series. In the year 467 AD Britannia is in shock at the murder of charismatic High King, Ambrosius Aurelianus, and looks to his brother and successor, Uther, to continue his work in leading the resistance to barbarian invaders. Uther’s destiny as a warrior king seems set until his world is turned on its head when his burning desire to possess the beautiful Ygerne leads to conflict. Could the fate of his kingdom hang in the balance as a consequence?

Court healer and schemer, Merlyn, sees an opportunity in Uther’s lustful obsession to fulfill the prophetic visions that guide him and must use his wisdom and guile to thwart the machinations of an enemy intent on foiling his plans. Meanwhile, Saxon chiefs Octa and Ælla have their own plans for seizing the island of Britannia and forging a new colony of Germanic tribes. Can Uther rise above his family problems and raise an army to oppose them?

Ambrosius: Last of the Romans –  Book two in the series. Britannia lies open to invasion following the sudden end of Roman rule. Cruel tyrant Vortigern has seized control and chosen to employ Saxons in his mercenary army. But who is the master and who the puppet? Enter Ambrosius Aurelianus, a Roman tribune on a secret mission. He finds that the influence of Rome is fast becoming a distant memory as Britannia reverts to its Celtic tribal roots.

AbandonedBook one in the series. This is a novella, set in Britain in AD410 in the immediate post-Roman period – was it liberation or abandonment for the Britons?
