AN EPIC HISTORICAL QUEST SET AT THE DAWN OF THE AGE OF GUNPOWDER. In the world after 1066, vast empires clamor for dominance. From the Normans in the north to the Byzantines in the south, battles rage across Europe and around its fringes. But in the east, an empire still mightier stirs, wielding a weapon to rule the world: gunpowder. Seeking the destructive might of this 'fire drug,' the mercenary Vallon -- a man made of grit and earth as much as of flesh and blood -- is sent by the defeated Byzantine emperor on a secret and near-impossible quest to the far off land of Song Dynasty China. Alongside a squadron of highly trained soldiers, Vallon is accompanied by the learned physician Hero, hermit-like tracker Wayland and a young, ego-driven upstart named Lucas. All have their own reasons for going, all have secrets. It's a quest that will lead them across treacherous seas and arid desserts and into an uncharted land of mountains and plains beyond the Silk Road. Many will die...but the rewards could be extraordinary.

The year is 1072. The Normans have captured England. The Turks have captured a Norman knight. And in order to free him, a soldier named Vallon must capture four rare hawks. On a heart-stopping journey to the far ends of the earth, braving Arctic seas, Viking warlords, and the blood-drenched battlefields, Vallon and his comrades must track down their quarry one by one in a relentless race against time. The scale is huge. The journey is incredible. The history is real. This is Hawk Quest.

?El libro, además de seguir las andanzas del hijo de Napoleón III y la española Eugenia de Montijo, detalla el esplendor de la Francia imperial, la Inglaterra victoriana, la epopeya del pueblo zulú y culmina con el mayor desastre sufrido por tropas británicas ante fuerzas indígenas: la batalla de Isandlwana.? (Diario El Mundo) ?Pasamos de un escenario a otro como quien lee un trepidante best seller. No da tregua al lector metiéndonos con un lenguaje cercano a cada acto de la vida de nuestro protagonista. Es una historia a la vez mítica y trágica que nos enseña no solo una parte de la historia de Francia y su familia imperial sino también como estaba la situación del mundo europeo y el gran reino de los bravos zulúes.? (Blog Historia con minúsculas) La increíble historia del legítimo heredero al imperio de Francia y aspirante a rey consorte de Inglaterra, que murió en una emboscada atravesado por media docena de lanzas. La historia de Napoleón Luis Eugenio Bonaparte, el hijo de Napoleón III, creador del Segundo Imperio francés, y la española Eugenia de Montijo, es una historia trágica que conmocionó a Europa. El último Napoleón nos introduce de lleno en esta historia en la que se mezclan escenarios tan sugerentes como la Francia imperial, la Inglaterra victoriana o el reino zulú en el África austral y nos traslada de un modo novelesco, como corresponde a esta genuina novela de aventuras, el periplo vital, breve pero intenso, del que hubiera sido Napoleón IV. Un hombre que luchó por merecer el trono de Francia y acabó muerto en África, sin haber contraído matrimonio y sin descendencia. Carlos Roca utiliza para relatar esta historia en la que se mezcla amor, traición, aventuras y batallas antológicas, un estilo que camina en perfecto equilibrio en la frontera entre el ensayo histórico y la novela de aventuras. La dinastía napoleónica, que instauró Napoleón Bonaparte, mezcla enormes fracasos con inigualables victorias, este es el sino que hereda Napoleón III que se ve obligado a exiliarse a Inglaterra, después de haber logrado el Segundo Imperio, por su desastrosa derrota en la guerra contra Prusia, en Francia se instaura la Tercera República y el joven Luis Eugenio crece con las ansias de grandeza de su padre y se resiste a considerar que el trono de Francia está perdido. Decidirá hacerse un nombre y para ello, con el permiso de la reina Victoria, se enrolará en el ejército inglés y marchará a la guerra contra los zulús. El joven Luis Eugenio encontrará la muerta en una emboscada en 1879 y su muerte conmocionó a Francia, que perdía al último representante de la saga napoleónica, a Inglaterra, porque aspiraba a convertirse en rey consorte y, por supuesto, a su madre que nunca se recuperó del golpe e incluso viajó al lugar en el que su hijo había perdido la vida. Razones para comprar la obra: - El libro recoge una historia de pasión, de amor y de valor y la presenta de un modo a caballo entre el ensayo y la novela, lo que facilita la lectura y la asimilación de los datos. - La disposición de los hechos y la estructura de la historia son rigurosamente cronológicas por lo que seguir los acontecimientos es más sencillo. - La obra desvela los motivos que llevaron al hijo de Napoleón III a enrolarse en el ejército de su enemigo histórico, Inglaterra. - Además de Luis Eugenio y la dinastía napoleónica el libro nos narra el declive de la dinastía zulú, dos sagas gloriosas cuyos destinos chocarán trágicamente. Con la muerte de Luis Eugenio, que cede sus derechos dinásticos a su primo segundo Napoleón Víctor, se acaban las aspiraciones napoleónicas al trono de Francia, se frustra su enlace con Beatriz, aspirante al trono inglés y Eugenia de Montijo recibirá un golpe del que sólo se recuperará cuarenta años después cuando se reúna con él, en la cripta de la abadía de Saint Michael.

An enthralling prequel to his bestselling Roma Sub Rosa series of mysteries set in the Ancient World, Steven Saylor takes readers back to the younger days of Gordianus the Finder. The year is 92BC and Gordianus has just turned eighteen and is about to embark on the adventure of a lifetime: a far-flung journey to see the Seven Wonders of the World.Gordianus is not yet called 'The Finder' - that title belongs to his father, who we meet in these pages. But at each of the Seven Wonders, the wide-eyed Roman encounters a mystery to challenge his powers of deduction. Here is a portrait of a master sleuth in the making, the earliest exploits of the man who will become the most sought-after investigator in Rome. Accompanying Gordianus on this travels is his tutor, Antipater of Sidon, the world's most celebrated poet. Together, teacher and pupil journey to the fabled cities of Greece and Asia Minor, and then on to Babylon and Egypt. They attend the Olympic Games, take part in exotic festivals, and marvel at the most spectacular constructions ever devised by mankind.Praise for Steven Saylor:'Saylor expertly weaves the true history of Rome with the lives and loves of its fictional citizens.' Daily Express'Saylor's scholarship is breathtaking and his writing enthrals' Ruth Rendell'With the scalpel-like deftness of a Hollywood director, Saylor puts his finger on the very essence of Roman history.' Times Literary Supplement'Readers will find his work wonderfully (and gracefully) researched... this is entertainment of the first order.' Washington Post
