Description

At the peak of Rome's might a dragon is born among eagles, an heir to a line both blessed and cursed by the Gods for ages. 
Lucius Metellus Anguis is a young warrior who is inspired by the deeds of his glorious ancestors and burdened by the knowledge that he must raise his family name from the ashes of the past. Having achieved a measure of success in the Emperor's legions in North Africa, Lucius is recalled to Rome where he finds himself surrounded by enemies, cast into the deadly arena of Roman politics. 
Amid growing fears of treachery, Lucius meets a young Athenian woman who fills his darkening world with new-found hope. Their love grows, as does their belief that the Gods have planned their meeting, but when an ancient oracle of Apollo utters a terrifying prophecy regarding his future, Lucius' world is once more thrown into chaos. 
Ultimately, he must choose sides in a war that threatens to destroy his family, his faith and all that he was worked for.

Here is what readers are saying about Eagles and Dragons:
on Goodreads:  
“… a very entertaining read; Haviaras has both a fluid writing style, and a good eye for historical detail, and explores in far more detail the faith of the average Roman than do most authors.” 
 on Epinions:  
“Well written historical drama with an eye for detail... I can’t wait for the next book… Killing the Hydra. There is so much more misery and mischief to puzzle and vex our worthy Metellus.” 
 Historic Novel Society review: 
 “…Haviaras handles it all with smooth skill. The world of third-century Rome—both the city and its African outposts—is colorfully vivid here, and Haviaras manages to invest even his secondary and tertiary characters with believable, three-dimensional humanity.” 
and more:
 “Historical fiction at its best! … if you like your historical fiction to be an education as well as a fun read, this is the book for you!” 
 “An outstanding and compelling novel!” 
 "I would add this author to some of the great historical writers such as Conn Iggulden, Simon Scarrow and David Gemmell. The characters were described in such a way that it was easy to picture them as if they were real and have lived in the past, the book flowed with an ease that any reader, novice to advanced can enjoy and become fully immersed…"
