    Ancient Rome meets Modern America - Historical Fiction with a twist.

    ** Long-listed for the 2012 ReLit Award for Fiction.**

    "Morgan has written a book that is highly original and beautifully executed. The balance between the Roman world and the modern world is maintained with skill and adroitness, and the narrative is deftly woven through both of these time periods, never faltering or losing momentum.

    The Last Stoic is a fascinating, parallel look at two societies who are not, as it turns out, as different or distinct as one might think."

    - Helen Humphreys

    The Last Stoic is a story of appetite and fear, both modern and ancient. Half of the story's narrative occurs in the time and place of the ancient Roman Empire; the other half occurs in the present-day United States. The parallels between the two eras are so strong that the narrative continues uninterrupted as the setting shifts from historic Rome to modern America, alternating from chapter to chapter.

    Marcus, a young man from a northern provincial border town, journeys deep into the heart of the empire and witnesses first-hand the excesses that can lead to ruin, both personal and political. His story offers an ancient commentary on the preoccupations of our own turbulent times. Shortly after his arrival, the empire is thrown into a panic by an unprecedented barbarian attack on the capital. Suspicion and paranoia abound. A young Roman/American runaway named Patrick, disillusioned with his own life and the state of his country, becomes convinced that Marcus is a dangerous traitor. Culminating in a public accusation made by Patrick, Marcus is wrongfully imprisoned, exiled and tortured as an enemy of the state. In prison, he confronts the many contradictions he has found in his adopted home, and in himself.

    Throughout the story, in both eras, the writings of the philosopher-emperor Marcus Aurelius (The Meditations) insinuate themselves unexpectedly into Marcus' life. In prison, he is saved by a chance meeting with Sextus Condianus, the "last Stoic" of the title, a cell-mate who is able to fully recite Aurelius' words and impart their wisdom. Ultimately, it is this unanticipated and unbidden instruction that gives the young man the strength he requires to survive. It becomes evident that the words of the venerable Stoic emperor have as much relevance to our own era as they did to his.

    The Regiment by Christopher Nicole: historical military fiction

    Click here to download.

    Free from Wednesday- Sunday.

     

    The Boer War is brewing in South Africa, and the Royal Western Dragoon Guards are bound for the front line. 

    In their ranks is the young subaltern Murdoch Mackinder, the latest in the long line of Mackinders who have, in their time, commanded the Royal Westerns across the whole of the British Empire. 

    Seeing battle for the first time against the Boers, Murdoch quickly and painfully learns that the British Army will need to find new ways of fighting modern wars, as the fear of a major European conflict grows ever stronger.

    Rising through the ranks of his regiment and gradually becoming its most famous and decorated member, Murdoch also comes to see that much more than courage under fire will be needed to live his life as a soldier, and a man. 

    'The Regiment' is a brilliantly told story of military life that is rich in adventure and period detail. 

    ‘…told with smooth authenticity’ – Publishers’ Weekly [on Amazon] 

    ‘…military saga covering the years from the Boer War through WW I. Bosoms still heave and legs still flash, but they're background colour in the story of Murdoch Mackinder and his career in the family regiment’ – Kirkus Review 

    ‘Well-researched…Evocative descriptions of scenery and edifices, and exact period dialogue’ – Historical Novels Society [on another of Nicole’s novels, Manu]

    At the Going Down of the Sun by Elizabeth Darrell: A moving WWI romance

    Click here to download.

    Free from Wednesday- Sunday.

    The summer of 1914. 

    The Sheridan brothers pursue the pastimes of the rich and talented in the idyllic village of Tarrant Royal, unaware of the coming war that will test their courage and family loyalty to the limit. 

    Roland, an aspiring surgeon, believes his duty lies in remaining as squire of his Dorset village. But charges of cowardice force him into a conflict his conscience cannot condone. 

    Rex, a womanizer and daredevil aviator, dons the RFC uniform. As time passes and he becomes an ace over the skies of France he knows that one day soon his luck must run out. 

    Chris, a brilliant scholar about to enter university, is driven to enlist by a scandal which shatters his golden future. Hopelessly unfitted for battle, he faces the carnage of Gallipoli not caring whether he lives or dies. 

    In Elizabeth Darrell's richly detailed, mesmeric novel the Sheridans live, love and fight for survival like the sons of all families caught up in a savage war which changed the old ways forever. 

    ‘Moving romance’ - Yorkshire Evening Post 

    ‘A wonderful story, compellingly told…the authenticity - both historical and emotional - really shines through’ - Sarah Harrison
