Summary

Evil from beyond time...

The Malwa Empire squats like a toad across 6th century India, commanded by ruthless men with depraved appetites. The thing from the distant future that commands them is far worse. 

An advisor without a body...

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

A champion for all times...

Count Belisarius, the greatest general of the age and perhaps of all ages, must outwit the evil empire - and then, when there is no longer room to maneuver, to meet it sword-edge to sword-edge, because, no matter what it costs... 

...evil cannot be allowed to rule men!

I love this series, the writing is amazingly good

Drake is a master at bringing your intellect up and toilet humor altogether. I love the plot line and I can't wait to read the next book.

#3 of 6 The Characters continue to Unfold

The overall series (I have hard cover titles & ebooks) is great & the conclusion is solid.
