    Great Adventure Tale

    This is a rare fictional foray into life among the Huns of ancient times. There isn't much known about these people, since they left no written records and few artifacts. However, the author does the best job possible, given the limited resources, in reconstructing this nomad people's world and ways. The result is a great tale that moves from Constantinople across Europe to a final battle between Romans and Huns in what is now France. The story makes abundantly clear what was at stake in the conflict between a world of culture, learning, and burgeoning Christianity and the brutal, repressive, world of the Huns (though environmentalists will appreciate the fact that they used natural resources with admirable economy). At the heart of the story - and apparently crucial in saving civilization from the barbarians - is an unlikely group consisting of a young Roman scribe, a beautiful slave girl, a dwarf and his practical wife. Likable characters and lots of action make this a very readable book.

    Good Read

    This book had a slow start, but the pick-up timing was excellent. The mechanics were excellent. I found one glaring grammatical error. Other readers have reviewed the plot. No need for my doing so.
    A young Roman diplomat, a beautiful Roman girl, a dwarf and the dwarf's fully grown wife are on a secret mission to infiltrate Attila's palace and kill him. The group did not exactly blend into any populace.
    In the final battle scene, there were so many soldiers that fellow soldiers got in each other's way.
    Jonas, both diplomat and soldier, out thought every other character, often in surprising ways.
    I recommend this book for the history and the fiction that prevents the history from being boring. I applaud the author for his research and his weaving together history and fiction.
    Exceptional work.

    Scourge chroncles

    Scourge gave a gasp as air raced back into his lungs. The gasp of the dead returning to life. Scourge looked around the landscape. A blankt of snow covered most of the land. It was breathtakes and beautiful. There were fat plump snow rabbits drinking out of a near frozen river. When Scourge saw them it reminded him of his thirst and hunger pangs. He shakely sat up and saw a gang of brutel cats walking toward him. He hisses and ducks down. But the attempt to hide him se was in vain. The cat knew he was there. They padded closer and closer. Scourge suddently reared up sissing and swiping his paws catching one of them on top of the head. The cat he hit when out like a sack of mouses. The oter cats hissed in fear all together sounding like a giant adder. "SCOURGES GHOST HAS COME BACK" one of the cats yowled " WE MUST-ACCCKKK" thats when the leader a she-cat with a orange pelt and green eyes rammed her paw at his wind pipe. " you fool!!" She hissed " this isnt the real scourge. He died moons ago!! If this is scourges ghost then i will see if i can kill h-" thats when scoure hit her oin the wind pipe. " are you two going to bicker all day or explain what happening?" The she-cat suddenly lunged at scourge claws unsheathed ready for te death-blow. Scourge may be hungry and thirstybut his reflexes were still razor sharp. He spun the the side un sheathing his own claws the she-cats group started to growl and move around him. Scourge closed his eyes feeling adeldrene run through his veins. Suddenly he felt calm and vollected. Every this seemed slow and all the facts became clear: there were 23 cats each one well fed and eagerly trained. They all lunged at him at the same time but to scourge they seemed slow and weak. He opened his eyes and went through a patten of fighting. His claws sliced 22 times the blows were all solid and not at all super ficail. His hindpaws seemed to dance as he moved swiftly through the snow. His claws driped vivid red. Blood, his timeing amd strikes perfect. He ended his moves with a calm ready stance with both paws planted on the snow 22 cats droped dead. Blood stained the blank white snow. The orange-pelted she cat stood solitary in the feild of bodys. Her eyes full of shock. " how....how...did......no one...could have done... that unless...they were......scou- " suddently he lunged at her claws out. The she cat screeched in fear and tried to rear away afraid of her own death. Scourge was to quick his claws raked down her pelt. Te she cat howled inpain. And reared up to smack scourge. Scourge ducked under her blow and shot up slaming his head agients her jaw. Scourge heared a solid smack. And the she cat rolled over our cold. Her chest rised up and down faintly. Scorge let her live. Then scourge......
    TO BE CONTINUED!!!!! XD
