Product description

From Library Journal

The invasion of Persia by the Malwa army forces an alliance with the rival empire of Rome's Eastern Empire. Aided by a crystalline intelligence from the distant future that grants visions of what may come to pass, the legendary Roman general Belisarius and his strategist wife, Antonina, wage a series of battles on land, at sea, and in the intrigue-ridden courts of the world's most powerful empires. Drake's consummate skill as a creator of military sf and Flint's historical expertise come together in a historical fantasy with sf overtones. The third in a series of novels that includes In the Heart of Darkness, this volume should appeal to fans of alternate history.
Copyright 1999 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From the Inside Flap

EVIL FROM BEYOND TIME

The Malwa Empire squats like a toad across 6th century India. The people who command the Malwa bureaucracy and armies are cruel, ruthless men with depraved appetites which their power permits them to indulge to the full.

The thing from the distant future that commands them is far worse.

AN ADVISOR WITHOUT A BODY

Those who oppose the pustulent Hell the Malwa will make of Earth have sent a crystal, Aide, to halt their advance. Aide holds all human knowledge -- but Aide cannot act by himself.

A CHAMPION FOR ALL TIMES

Count Belisarius, the greatest general of Byzantium and perhaps the greatest of all time, must defeat the Malwa and the enemies of humankind which direct the evil empire.

With Aide's advice --

With the support of Empress Theodora --

With the courage and ruthless skill of his wife Antonina --

And with a few thousand of the best soldiers in the world, Belisarius must face the Malwa invaders beyond Rome's borders. Maneuvering through Mesopotamia in unfamiliar terrain and the risk of doubtful allies, Belisarius must outwit powerful enemies -- and then, when there is no longer room to maneuver, to meet them sword-edge to sword-edge. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
