About Gordon Doherty

I'm a Scottish writer, addicted to reading and writing historical fiction.

My love of history was piqued during spells living and working close to both Hadrian's Wall and the Antonine Wall, sites of rich history winding back through thousands of years. The later Roman Empire and Byzantium hold a particular fascination for me. There is something quite special about the metamorphosis from late antiquity into the 'dark ages' and the medieval period.

While historical fiction is my passion, I enjoy writing comedy and sci-fi too. Perhaps one day I'll find a way to combine all three.

Anyway, happy reading!

About the Series: Legionary
The Roman Empire is crumbling, and a shadow looms in the east . . .

In the 4th Century AD, countless barbarian tribes surge against the Eastern Roman Empire's borders, driven by a dark horde that has arrived from the great steppe. On the Danubian frontier, the situation is critical: the crumbling, neglected forts and watchtowers along the riverbank are thinly garrisoned by 'mere' limitanei - the impoverished border legions. Pavo, a slave freed and sent to serve with the XI Claudia in this precarious land, finds himself thrust into a tumultuous sequence of events that will shape his destiny and the fate of the Empire.

Review by: Hans Vyt on Nov. 17, 2011 : (no rating)
I just finished this book. I have to say that i really enjoyed it ! And i'm looking forward to the next installment to this series !
I'm not totally sure it follows history as it really happened but i do not really care ! What i really appreciate is that this book was a very fast and easy read BUT it really built a story. And this is what a lot of books lack. Be an easy read AND be really good built up ! So, thumbs up to the writer 8 You've got one more fan ! Greets from Belgium

Good book, will be familiar to people who enjoy books by contemporary historical fiction writers Conn Iggulden or Bernard Cornwall.
