With The Shield, the second volume of T.H. Paul's debut fantasy series, the scope of the threat to the mortal world of Teth-tenir begins to reveal itself. Trem Waterhound and his companions survived the Passage of Cronakarl and arrived in Southron, but they are far from safe. Trem is badly injured, and the others have to navigate the desolate Endless Sands to some form of safety before their limited resources run out. Even should they survive the desert, danger looms to the north. The horde of Broken is descending upon the Order of the Eagle Knights and their castle of Aves. Should their army overwhelm the fortress, the rest of Legocia will surely fall too. With time running out, Trem, Jovanaleth, and the other heroes of Delmore must reach Aves and break the siege, before it is too late.

Cornwall, England, 1193. Eleanor of Aquitaine, the indomitable dowager queen, has ordered all of England onto a war footing while her son King Richard languishes in a German dungeon. Gwendolyn de Cardinham, the defiant wife of an absent crusader, protects and defends her estate, Penhallam, with her sword and the garrison of men that she commands. While travelling to deliver a captured mercenary of would-be usurper Prince John to a nearby gaol, her constable takes her on a detour to the local prior, who gravely informs her that King Arthur’s mythical sword, Caliburn, is destined to be hers. When Gwendolyn discovers that Prince John has been hunting for Caliburn, she realizes she is in a unique position to end the wayward prince’s rebellion. Determined to protect Penhallam and its tenants at any cost, Gwendolyn travels to London to present herself to the dowager queen, placing herself in the middle of the brothers’ duel for the throne. But Gwendolyn has kept a secret from even her constable that could put all of Penhallam—and herself—at risk if the queen discovers it.

From Barbara W. Tuchman, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Guns of August, comes history through a wide-angle lens: a fascinating chronicle of Britain’s long relationship with Palestine and the Middle East, from the ancient world to the twentieth century. Historically, the British were drawn to the Holy Land for two major reasons: first, to translate the Bible into English and, later, to control the road to India and access to the oil of the Middle East. With the lucidity and vividness that characterize all her work, Barbara W. Tuchman follows these twin spiritual and imperial motives—the Bible and the sword—to their seemingly inevitable endpoint, when Britain conquered Palestine at the conclusion of World War I. At that moment, in a gesture of significance and solemnity, the Balfour Declaration of 1917 established a British-sponsored mandate for a national home for the Jewish people. Throughout this characteristically vivid account, Tuchman demonstrates that the seeds of conflict were planted in the Middle East long before the official founding of the modern state of Israel. Praise for Bible and Sword “Tuchman is a wise and witty writer, a shrewd observer with a lively command of high drama.”—The Philadelphia Inquirer “In her métier as a narrative popular historical writer, Barbara Tuchman is supreme.”—Chicago Sun-Times From the Trade Paperback edition.

Napoleon fenced. So did Shakespeare, Karl Marx, Grace Kelly, and President Truman, who would cross swords with his daughter, Margaret, when she came home from school. Lincoln was a canny dueler. Igantius Loyala challenged a man to a duel for denying Christ’s divinity (and won). Less successful, but no less enthusiastic, was Mussolini, who would tell his wife he was “off to get spaghetti,” their code to avoid alarming the children. By the Sword is an epic history of sword fighting—a science, an art, and, for many, a religion that began at the dawn of civilization in ancient Egypt and has been an obsession for mankind ever since. With wit and insight, Richard Cohen gives us an engrossing history of the world via the sword. With a new Preface by the author.

Hraban, the Raven, is a young Germani noble, born to the Marcomanni tribe during the reign of Augustus. Having never met his father, the ill-omened Maroboodus, and raised by his war-chief grandfather Hulderic, Hraban’s dream of the return of his famous father from Roman service suddenly becomes reality. Unfortunately, the return of his father also brings death and war to their village, and the malice or Rome follows his father and his rogue men like a shadow. Drusus, the famed Roman soldier prowls on the borders of Germania’s many tribes, and will surely lead the legions against them eventually. A hunted man, Maroboodus hopes to unite the nations against the threat, and he has brewed a desperate plan in his clever mind. His son Hraban, and Hraban’s brother Gernot, must weight their honor against the demands of their powerful, deceitful father, and find a way to survive the roles Maroboodus has chosen them in his grand scheme. That scheme is also a desperate one. Maroboodus’s Roman ways are ill-suited for the Germani, and he is seen as an outsider, who still must convince them all to heed his wisdom. Maroboodus knows triumph against Drusus comes only from discipline so lacking in Germania, and survival hinges on a change in the old ways, and perhaps on the demise of those, who would not change anyway. So, men must die. Hraban’s task is to betray his own for his father’s vision, before Rome, the ever-hungry Wolf, turns south. While Drusus is busy in the north, subjugating the Chauci, and the Sigambri, Maroboodus must not only grasp power in the Marcomanni tribe, but to form a grand alliance of former and current enemies in the south. Then, he must defeat the tribe of the Matticati, staunch Roman allies. Hraban’s role, the one he must adopt in order to prove himself to Maroboodus, demands he must make, and break many oaths. If he succeeds, the Germani might be saved under the leadership of Maroboodus, and Hraban might finally find the favor of his father, if not his honor. And yet, Hraban finds a surprising, hidden layer in the schemes of his father, and must ultimately decide between family, and the honorable ways of his ancient people. The Oath Breaker is a story of Rome and Germania, and based on historical accounts of a period, when the fate of Germania was decided, and the foundation of the imperial Rome was built. It is a first book in a series that will take Hraban from the mysterious depths of the Black Woods to the illustrious, terrible Rome, and far beyond, as he seeks to avenge his lost kin and honor. Drusus, Tiberius, Livia, Augustus, and many other famous men and women will have their part to play in the story of the ancient legends. War, love, betrayal, and friendship alike can be found in this massive tale of the past. The brutal story of Hraban and his friends is one of Longward’s most powerful books.
