Nothing will stand in the way of the High King of the Britons…

A gripping e-novella that brings the dramatic battle between the High King of Briton, Magnus Maximus, and the Roman Emperor, Gratian, vividly to life. The Emperor’s Blood is M.K. Hume’s untold adventure from The Blood of Kings (Tintagel Book I). Not to be missed by fans of Simon Scarrow and Ian Ross.

In the dying days of Roman rule, Magnus Maximus casts his eyes on the throne of the Western Empire and with a band of brave Roman and British warriors he marches to Gaul and challenges the might of Rome itself…

What readers are saying about M.K. Hume’s novels:

Well drawn characters with the right balance of plot and action. A great addition to historical fiction

‘M.K. Hume brings not only her characters to life but also the sights and sounds of battle


Hume brings the bloody, violent, conniving world vividly to life...will appeal to those who thrill to Game of Thrones and other tales of intersecting, ever-warring, noble lineages

Hume deftly navigates the Arthurian legends, populating them with likable and despicable characters, and casting them in a fully realized historical setting
Publishers Weekly
Historical fiction of the most bloodthirsty and roistering kind
