Bruce Corbett divides his time between his home on Ile Perrot, just west of Montreal, and his wife's family cottage in scenic Entralac, Quebec. After counselling teenagers and adults for over 40 years, he retired to concentrate on his writing and photography. To date, he has written a collection of Science Fiction short stories, which are now available individually or as a newly-released ebook. Two Science Fiction novels await the final editing. The project closest to his heart, however, is his series of historical novels based on a fictional hero, Ambrose, a Prince of Wessex, set in the time of Alfred the Great. There are now nine novels in the series.
Ambrose, Prince of Wessex; Southern Journey.by Bruce Corbett
Ambrose and his friends flee for their lives from imperial Constantinople. The Grand Chamberlain wants them dead, and has dispatched an admiral and a fleet to dispose of them. The prince hopes to return to his native Wessex. Caught by pirates, they are enslaved on Crete, but manage to cause a slave rebellion and escape to Alexandria. The Byzantine fleet follows, and Ambrose is forced to flee across all of North Africa. They are forced to fight mercenaries, Tuareg raiders, and the open desert. Finally, a Muslim slave trader sneaks them into southern Italy, but even there the chase is far from over.

I was anticipating some drop off in reading enjoyment in this series but I think that I enjoyed the 3rd book even more than the first 2. My only dissapointment was that Barnes and Noble did carry the fourth installment in this series. I down loaded it, however, from another source and it was great, as well.
