BLOG POST > #FEATURED #KINDLE #BOOK ● ▸▸▸As Dust to the Wind by Peter Darman

Conrad and the Sword Brothers are now masters of all they survey. The crusader state they have created by the sword is strong and prospering but peace is only temporary. The riches of Novgorod, now threatened and weakened by the Mongols, is an irresistible target for Bishop Hermann and the Papacy, leading to a new and bloody crusade against the Russians.
For Conrad the appearance of an enemy from his past will reawaken old wounds and a thirst for revenge. But his actions will have a catastrophic effect on the Sword Brothers and will set in train a sequence of events that will lead to a final confrontation between East and West on the frozen surface of Lake Peipus. This battle will be a defining moment not only for Conrad Wolff and the Sword Brothers but also for European history.
This, the final volume in the Crusader Chronicles series, sees Conrad and the Army of the Wolf embark upon their final, fateful campaign.

BLOG POST > #FEATURED #KINDLE #BOOK ● ▸▸▸Wraiths (Parthian Chronicles Book 12) by Peter Darman

Nothing is forgotten. Nothing is ever forgotten.
No matter where you are, I will find you.

King Pacorus and Queen Gallia have returned to Dura after their narrow escape in the north. The king is glad to be alive but Gallia seethes with resentment and thirsts for vengeance against those who deceived her husband, killed her friends, imperilled the empire and threatened Dura’s rulers.
And thanks to her own foresight and the assistance of the Scythian Sisters, Gallia has the means to strike back at her enemies, and wastes no time in doing so. But she sets in motion a sequence of events that will have unforeseen consequences, both for Dura and for the Parthian Empire. And for one lowly farmer, his life will change forever.
‘Wraiths’ is the twelfth volume in the Parthian Chronicles series and follows on from ‘Lord of War’. A map of the Parthian Empire in the 1st century BC can be found on the maps page of my website: www.peterdarman.com.

Blog Post ➡ #KINDLE #BOOK ➡ The New America by P. H. Figur

In 2045 after WWIII, America experiences widespread death and destruction. Almost half the country flees to a safe zone between the Mississippi River and the Appalachian Mountains. The government establishes a new Capital in Nashville, Tennessee. This is “The New America.”

At the time, the country was governed by four powerful men known as the “Presidential Caucus”. James Martin, who sat on the Caucus, was a closet totalitarian who anointed himself as America’s Dictator. To get his way, James balanced multiple personalities, colluded with foreign governments, murdered friends and enemies, and threatened almost everyone who got in his way. However conquering America was just a stepping stone to his goal…to become the most powerful man in the world.

While the country was secretly losing control, A.J. Robertson leads a team of Navy SEALs to confront James Martin and his army to try and save the country. Will it be too late to save the nation from tyranny? It all comes down to a single confrontation. The outcome can only be black and white. It’s freedom or suppression. It’s kill or be killed. There is no middle ground. A.J. and his team of Navy SEALs don’t know if they will be successful, but they do know failure is not an option.

BLOG POST > #FEATURED #KINDLE #BOOK ● ▸▸▸Castellan by Peter Darman

Outraged by the behaviour of the Sword Brothers, King Valdemar has placed a blockade on the whole of Livonia. With the Danes having a stranglehold over Livonia the crusader state is slowly dying, made worse by an outbreak of pestilence at Riga. But when the Danish king invades the island of Oesel the wheel of fate turns and Valdemar finds himself at the mercy of the Sword Brothers and Conrad Wolff, the man he wanted to have executed.

The Sword Brothers and Conrad’s Army of the Wolf save King Valdemar who lifts the blockade, thus saving Livonia. But Conrad has many enemies and an act of wickedness causes conflict to flare up on Livonia’s eastern borders that will threaten not only the crusader state but also the life of Conrad himself.

And south of the River Dvina, among the Lithuanian kingdoms, a great power arises that will have grave consequences for not only Conrad but also for the whole order of Sword Brothers.

This, the third volume of the Crusader Chronicles, continues the story of Conrad Wolff and the Baltic Crusade in the first quarter of the thirteenth century.

BLOG POST > #FEATURED #KINDLE #BOOK ● ▸▸▸Army of the Wolf by Peter Darman

The Sword Brothers have won a great victory and the implacable enemy of their order is dead. There is now nothing to stop the Bishop of Riga from marching north and seizing the whole of Estonia. But in the moment of triumph the seeds of future difficulties have been sown, for the bishop’s German crusaders believe that the fight against the pagans has been won and thus there is no reason for them to stay in Livonia. Faced with a lack of holy warriors to complete his task, the bishop is forced to beg the ambitious King Valdemar of Denmark for military aid, a request that will have disastrous consequences.

While he is away Conrad Wolff, now a veteran brother knight of the Sword Brothers, his reputation high among pagans and crusaders alike, is sent to Ungannia whose ruler Kalju is an ally of the Sword Brothers. There a trivial incident escalates into a full-scale war that results in a great barbarian horde sweeping into Livonia and threatening the very existence of the crusader state.

Conrad is sent on a desperate mission to raise a ragtag army to delay the invaders long enough so Riga can summon crusader knights from Germany. Conrad and his companions soon find themselves battling Cumans, Russians, Lithuanians and Danes as their motley force – the Army of the Wolf – takes the field against the many enemies of Livonia.

This, the second volume of the Crusader Chronicles, continues the story of Conrad Wolff and the Baltic Crusade in the first quarter of the thirteenth century.
