A brave young man becomes part of a deadly war…

Merlin’s epic quest continues as he journeys to Constantinople in search of his father in the unputdownable Prophecy: Death of an Empire, the second instalment in the Prophecy Trilogy. M.K. Hume’s thrillers are sure to enthral fans of Harry Sidebottom and Ben Kane.

‘Exciting, violent and bloody… Up there with Conn Iggulden and Bernard Cornwell’ – http://www.lovereading.co.uk

Myrddion Emrys of Segontium is the product of a brutal rape, but when King Vortigern hints at his father’s identity, Myrddion embarks on a journey across France and Italy to Constantinople. It is a voyage that is to turn the young healer into a man of great renown.

Serving under General Flavius Aetius at the Battle of the Catalaunian Plains, Myrddion saves the lives of thousands of warriors and, on his arrival in Rome, he heals many more, including Cleoxenes, Envoy to Emperor Theodosius of the East, on his way to a delegation with Attila the Hun.

But a deadlier conflict between Emperor Valentinian of the West and Senator Petronius Maximus is still to come and Myrddion must use all his strength to carry out his work in a world that is evil.

What readers are saying about Prophecy: Death of an Empire:

‘An astounding book. The storytelling is again of an excellent quality, because the author uses her knowledge and learning to the best of her ability. Another fascinating tale

‘Having read the first part of the Merlin trilogy, I was fascinated by the interpretation and blend of fact and fiction. Prophecy 2 did not disappoint – in fact it exceeded expectations

Wonderful insight into how all the political wrangling and apathy killed the Roman Empire
