An ancient power struggle, an empire expanding and a proud, warrior people facing the end of their way of life.

It is 219 BC and Carthage has a new General who is intent on expanding their colonies in Iberia, but resistance is growing. Violent raids up and down the east coast of Iberia are occurring. Caros is the son of a wealthy trader and discovers his family murdered after a raid on their village. Honour bound to avenge their murders, Caros turns from trader to warrior to hunt his family’s killers. In doing so he befriends a gifted tracker, gains prestige among strange, foreign horsemen and falls in love with a beautiful woman. For Caros, peace and happiness are elusive though as resistance to Carthage finally ignites a conflagration that will change the course of history. He finds himself riding to battle in the army of a young Carthaginian General and while doing so becomes a hero of his people. Even heroes can be broken though…

Tell us about Caros.
Caros is a young merchant who becomes involved in the war that is breaking out in Iberia between Carthage and the tribes. He is reluctant to do more than avenge his family’s death, but soon grows to enjoy the bonds that form between him and the regular warriors. His natural leadership asserts itself and in the course of the tale he becomes a celebrated hero of his people.

Tell us a little about yourself.
As a child my playground was the wide open veldt with the blue African sky above. Jungle gyms grew naturally from seed and the pet store was just beyond the garden gate. I wore shoes under protest and then only to school and church. I needed a bath every single night.

I served as an ops medic in the army for two years and treated gunshot wounds and arrow strikes. I’ve swum in the crocodile-infested Okavango and seen entire villages succumb to malaria. I have hunted poachers and listened from my sleeping bag to hunting lions prowling and roaring beyond the firelight.

Life is a little tamer now. I have a beautiful wife and a strapping young man that is my son. In my spare time I write about what I love and what I love is the past. The very ancient past and the heroes of those times.
