eBook (ePub): $4.99
Gaius Cassius Longinus, the Immortal Centurion, has had a hard couple of centuries. When he saw Jesus suffering on the Cross, he tried to lessen His suffering and hasten His death by piercing him in... More > the side with his spear. The centurion and his weapon were changed forever. Longinus cannot die, and the spear, which became known as the Spear of Destiny, brings victory to whoever possesses it. But immortality and invincibility are great responsibilities, and that victory always comes at a price. Between the fifth and eighth centuries Longinus criss-crossed the Mediterranean, and witnessed the transformation of the Roman world. Waves of barbarian tribes migrated into Europe, the Roman Empire fell in the West, but continued in the East, and a new religion, Islam, spread out of Arabia – and Longinus was there to see it all. He came to realize that it was his mission not to fight for one side or another. But above everything else, the Spear of Destiny had to be kept out of the wrong hands.< Less
She Smiled on Constantinople By Reynold Spector

In 717 AD, Constantinople, the capital of the Eastern Roman Empire (Byzantium), appeared doomed. In the preceding eighty years, Muslim Arabs had captured much of North Africa and the Middle East, and... More > were poised to take Constantinople. To save Byzantium, the senate asked a Roman General, Leo III, to become Emperor. Leo and his brilliant son Constantine V radically altered the Byzantine imperial system militarily and culturally. Leo developed a novel idea – that God was angry with the Byzantine Christians because they worshiped Christian icons, relics, and pagan idols, thus ignoring the Second Commandment. God would favor the Byzantines only if they destroyed their icons and purified Christianity. Leo’s policy set in motion a century-long conflict between the iconoclast (icon breaker) emperors and the iconophiles (icon lovers). This religious struggle culminated in a final battle to define Byzantine Christianity and the control of the Empire. This novel recounts who won, why and how.< Less

CYPRUS, DEPRIVATION OF FREEDOM The geographical position of the island of Cyprus never allowed her to be free, nor will it ever be self-governed under the present European Union’s approach to... More > the island’s political situation and its people’s financial problems. Cyprus has always been strategically important for the various tyrannical old Empires; hence the reason why Cyprus was colonized for more than two and a half thousand years. A Mycenaean colony in the 14th century BC, it was ruled successively by the Assyrian, Persian, Roman, and Byzantine empires. Richard I of England conquered it in 1191 and sold it to the French Crusader Guy de Lusignan under whom it became a feudal monarchy.
