The young Cornelius marches with the fifth legion to chastise the barbarian hordes of Dacia who dared cross Roman borders; He dreams of glory wealth and a later life of ease in the senate. But his life was to change; in a decisive battle the legion is crushed. The few survivors, fleeing to the carpathian mountains, harried by war bands; starving and dying from the extreme cold find that there is something more to fear. There is something stalking these mountains, something older and darker than simply death. Cornelius finds himself welcoming this darkness and becoming part of it. This is a story of blood and treachery. War and power, it is a story of horror pain and damnation. But it is also a story of friendship and eternal love for all changes in an eternity. This tale takes you from the mighty civilisations of Rome,Samarkand and China to the barbarian lands of Scotland and Romania. It is a tale of gut-wrenching battles, ambition and blood; fought both friends and between them.

    I found this very different from R.Walker's previous books, especially at the beginning; being pretty much historical fiction though it was as always well written and conceived. As the story developed however: through its many plot twists and turns, I realised that this will appeal to Mr Walkers earlier readers but will attract many new followers. I challenge anyone to predict the ending while still reading but the clues are all there. Without giving too much away, Cornelius becomes one of the best anti-heroes I have ever read. Highly recommended.

    I was taken in after reading the first pages. The story is refreshingly original, rich in historical foundation, depth of characters, and wit. Fascinating war stories of legendary Rome, love, magic, and suspense make Cornelius a great read. The plot empowered with romance and the supernatural carries with it something you never want to let go of, and when the book ends, you simply want more. Toward the end the eroticism and pleasure of lovemaking is so enthralling that i lost myself in the story for a moment. However i think the overall message of the book is love and its transforming love transforms and liberates. I believe readers of love and romance as well as readers of historical fiction and fantasy will find something to treasure in this book. Very well done. Really great.
