Description

Killing the Hydra

Eagles and Dragons Book II

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.
In Killing the Hydra, Lucius Metellus Anguis returns to North Africa, determined to investigate the death of his centurion and root out the treason that has infiltrated the ranks of his cohort. With his wife, Adara, safe in Athens, Lucius finds himself alone on a dangerous road back to the legionary base at Lambaesis. Praetorian spies and other unknown enemies are hunting him, and it is only with help from the Empress, a Punic prostitute, and an ancient group of warriors that Lucius is able to survive.
But the Sibyl’s prophecy haunts Lucius’s dreams, and he clings desperately to the hope that he is making the right decisions for his men, for himself, and for his family.
As his world is ravaged by pain on all fronts, Lucius Metellus Anguis must decide whether or not to make his move against the enemies that have plagued his family for far too long, including the most powerful man in the Roman Empire.
How far will the Dragon go to protect his family and avenge the spirits of the dead?
Only the Gods know…

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…"
