He's spent six years inside a frontier military garrison, held hostage by the same Roman legions that saved him from an innocent boyhood mistake and the brutal justice of the Angel of Death.
He trains alongside highborn sons of the empire and sees his future within their ranks, but he is not a Roman citizen. He is Matthi the Goth -- a savage -- the teenage son of the only man who can unite the hostile northland barbarian clans. For some, this makes Matthi a symbol of unity. For others, he’s a powerful bartering chip.
As famine crushes Lower Moesia, barbarian kings battle Roman generals, noblemen scheme for control of the territory, and Matthi must decide who he can trust, and who he must fight, in a web of betrayal, blood and lies.
The Stone Eagle is a young adult historical action adventure series, published in novella-length episodes. Each episode furthers the story of the ancient Germanic Goth barbarians on the frontier of the crumbling Late Roman Empire.
