About the Author

David Drake is one of the grand masters of military science fiction, known for his best-selling Hammer’s Slammers series and many other novels. A Vietnam veteran, he employs his first-hand experience with the military life and combat to give his work the vivid images and feel of battle that have won him a huge readership. He was attending Duke University Law School when he was drafted. Upon his return from the U.S. Army, he completed his law degree at Duke and was for eight years Assistant Town Attorney for Chapel Hill, North Carolina. A full-time writer since 1981, his other books for Baen include the RCN-Leary series, the latest being In the Stormy Red Sky, and the Belisarius series, written in collaboration with Eric Flint, the second and third novels of which are now combined in this volume.

 

Eric Flint is the co-author of three New York Times best sellers in his “Ring of Fire” alternate history series. His first novel for Baen, Mother of Demons, was picked by Science Fiction Chronicle as a best novel of the year. His 1632, which launched the Ring of Fire series, won widespread critical praise, as from Publishers Weekly, which called him “an SF author of particular note, one who can entertain and edify in equal, and major, measure.” A longtime labor union activist with a Master’s Degree in history, he currently resides in northwest Indiana with his wife Lucille.

This is one of those "must read" series.
Vic Ueckermann
This is a great series, fun and a must read for fans of fantasy battles, what if histories or just plain action books.
David G
What makes these books so much fun is not the overarching plot as much as the little moments.

This as the second book surpassed the first. It fits in well and launches the third book very nicely. An amazing amount of human character displayed, compared to others even of the same author. good show!

I've been looking for this book for quite some time, so I could read the Whole series. It's well written, and an interesting view of an alternate "Roman Empire".

Format: Hardcover
Storm at Noontide (2009) is the second SF omnibus in the Belisarius series, including Destiny's Shield and Fortune's Stroke. In this series, Belisarius has gone to the Malwa Empire and met many of the ruling family. He has also taken some steps to make allies, creating potential chaos. Then Malwa agents blind Justinian so that he cannot be emperor.

Destiny's Shield (1999) is the third novel in this series. Photius -- Antonina's eight year old son -- is adopted by Justinian and Theodora and then acclaimed as the Emperor. Theodora will be his regnant and Justinian his advisor. Hypatia will be his governess and Justin his chief bodyguard. Belisarius will be his strategos and Antonina his comfort.

Baresmanas of the Suren is the new Persian Ambassador. His audience is the first public appearance of the new emperor. He worries Photius until the young emperor makes a slight mistake in his greeting for the ambassador. When Baresmanas smiles warmly at his recovery, Photius is relieved. Baresmanas suddenly reminds Photius of his stepfather Belisarius.

After putting Photius to bed, Antonina joins a conference with the Persian ambassador. Baresmanas is just concluding a long and involved speech warning the Romans against interfering in the secession in Persia. As he is finishing his remarks, Irene Macrembolitissa ushers in a Persian officer, who whispers in the ambassador's ear.

When the ambassador withdraws to speak to his own entourage, Irene passes on the gist of the news. Persia has been invaded by the Malwa.

The good guys are being led by a general who is assisted by a self-aware super memory chip, who is clueless about what direction humanity should go in, but know that the cyborg's way is not the way to go. How does a human being with a very capable staff beat a super computer, able assess every possible response and calculate the best use of it's far larger resources? This book contains the next two installments of the Belasarius series. Who will live, and who will pay the price?

No matter if you are a fan of science fiction, fantasy, historical or adventure stories there is something here for everyone. This is one of those "must read" series. The wry humor consistent throughout the whole saga makes them just plain fun to read and re-read. To me this is one of those classic series that demands to be read over and over for their sheer entertainment value.

Alternate timeline revisionist history of Rome vs Persia? Count me in and boy am I glad they combined 2 books of the series into 1 book!

Deadly with a sword, Belisarius is.
