about this item

The award-winning author of Clash of Eagles and Eagle in Exile concludes his masterly alternate-history saga of the Roman invasion of North America in this stunning novel.  Roman Praetor Gaius Marcellinus came to North America as a conqueror, but after meeting with defeat at the hands of the city-state of Cahokia, he has had to forge a new destiny in this strange land. In the decade since his arrival, he has managed to broker an unstable peace between the invading Romans and a loose affiliation of Native American tribes known as the League.   But invaders from the west will shatter that peace and plunge the continent into war: The Mongol Horde has arrived and they are taking no prisoners.   As the Mongol cavalry advances across the Great Plains leaving destruction in its path, Marcellinus and his Cahokian friends must summon allies both great and small in preparation for a final showdown. Alliances will shift, foes will rise, and friends will fall as Alan Smale brings us ever closer to the dramatic final battle for the future of the North American continent.Praise for Eagle and Empire“The pace . . . is breathless and the action relentless. . . . A satisfying culmination to the adventures of a Roman warrior in the New World.”Kirkus Reviews  “The final volume of [Alan] Smale’s Clash of Eagles trilogy is relentless, with characters and readers hardly getting a breath before the next threat comes crashing down. . . . Smale’s hard-hitting and satisfying conclusion will be a must for his readers, as the trilogy will be for any fan of alternate history.”Publishers Weekly (starred review)Praise for Alan Smale “In Alan Smale, speculative fiction has been dealt a winning hand. Part historian, part anthropologist, part scientist, Smale is a Renaissance man with a storyteller’s gift for letting tireless research inform the narrative without overwhelming it. Smale entertains, educates, and enraptures.”—Myke Cole, author of Javelin Rain Clash of Eagles “Just when it seems there is nothing new in [alternate] history comes this debut.”Library Journal (starred review)  “Epic in its sweep, exciting in its narrative, and eyeball-kick-sharp in its details.”—Nancy Kress, Nebula and Hugo award-winning author of Beggars in Spain Eagle in Exile “The pace and scope of a Michener or Uris epic . . . Smale’s action scenes slash across page after page, intense and bloody.”Kirkus Reviews (starred review)  “Thoroughly believable . . . Marcellinus is
