Britannia, amenazada por la caída del Imperio romano y por el avance de los bárbaros, ve nacer la leyenda artúrica a través de la historia real del rey Artorius. A fines del siglo V d.C., el Imperio romano agonizaba a causa de su decadencia interna y las embestidas bárbaras. Cuando Roma se desplomó, no fueron pocos los que pensaron que su civilización debía ser salvada de aquellos que pretendían aniquilarla. Entre ellos,se encontraba un oficial romano llamado Lucius Artorius Castus, que en la lejana Britannia decidió mantener la ley, el orden y la justicia frente a los invasores. Sus gestas prodigiosas darían lugar, con el paso del tiempo, a las leyendas artúricas. Artorius es la novela sobre la vida real del Arturo histórico contada por el enigmático personaje que mejor le conoció y que en los relatos míticos siempre figuró a su lado. Pero también es una narración en la que se analizan temas eternos como el amor y la lealtad, el cumplimiento del deber y la defensa de la civilización, la magia y la fe, o la preservación de la cultura y la búsqueda de la Verdad eterna. Escrita de manera atractiva, subyugante y documentada, como corresponde al estilo literario de César Vidal, Artorius es una novela que nos conduce a las raíces del ciclo artúrico y que, al tiempo, nos recuerda que no somos tan distintos de aquellos que nos precedieron tantos siglos atrás.

It has been three years since the wars against Arminius and the Cherusci. Gaius Silius, Legate of the Twentieth Legion, is concerned that the barbarians-though shattered by the war-may be stirring once again. He also seeks to confirm the rumors regarding Arminius' death. What Silius does not realize is that there is a new threat to the Empire, but it does not come from beyond the frontier; it is coming from within, where a disenchanted nobleman looks to sow the seeds of rebellion in Gaul. Legionary Artorius has greatly matured during his five years in the legions. He has become stronger in mind; his body growing even more powerful. Like the rest of the Legion, he is unaware of the shadow growing well within the Empire's borders, where a disaffected nobleman seeks to betray the Emperor Tiberius. A shadow looms; one that looks to envelope the province of Gaul as well as the Rhine legions. The year is A.D. 20.

Volume 2 in The House of Grey Series Fantasy, friendship, and fate await you in Collin Earl’s The House of Grey, based on the popular audio fiction by the same name. 14-year-old Monson Grey faces the same challenges that any freshman high school kid would: difficult classes, weird teachers, food fights…girls. Except, Monson Grey is not Monson Grey. At least, when he looks at himself in the mirror, the scarred face staring back is not someone he recognizes. Now he finds himself attending an extraordinary school, the recipient of an incredible scholarship, among ridiculously rich classmates, all with no memory of how he got there or what to expect. All he has from his former life are the flashes of haunting images that plague his dreams and the echoing voices that he hears, but cannot see. Luckily, Monson finds fast friendship in two of his classmates, Casey and Artorius. Little does Monson know, they too carry their own skeletons. Yet, as bizarre events start to unfold around them, Monson wonders what secrets lay buried in his mind or if he will ever be able to share his true fears with his newfound friends. Join our three heroes as they roam the halls of the most prestigious high school in the country, finding love, mystery, and answers to their algebra homework- all while peeling away the layers of Monson’s shadowy past. Author’s Note: The House of Grey was originally a serialized audio fiction. The Volume system begins the written adaptation of that story. Individual volumes do not contain the complete story. The Volumes contain 50,000 to 70,000 word chucks and are divided into ARCS. (ARC ONE, the Coren University Arc, consists of Volumes 1 through 6 and corresponds to the original podcast fiction) Each ARC will be available for a reduced price in an omnibus format. Original material for the continuation of the story starts in Volume 7

Rome's Vengeance In the year A.D. 9, three Roman Legions under Quintilius Varus were betrayed by the Germanic war chief, Arminius, and destroyed in the forest known as Teutoburger Wald. Six years later Rome is finally ready to unleash Her vengeance on the barbarians. The Emperor Tiberius has sent his adopted son, Germanicus Caesar, into Germania with an army of forty-thousand legionaries. The come not on a mission of conquest, but one of annihilation. With them is a young legionary named Artorius. For him the war is a personal vendetta; a chance to avenge his brother, who was killed in Teutoburger Wald. In Germania Arminius knows the Romans are coming. He realizes that the only way to fight the legions is through deceit, cunning, and plenty of well-placed brute force. In truth he is leery of Germanicus, knowing that he was trained to be a master of war by the Emperor himself. The entire Roman Empire held its collective breath as Germanicus and Arminius faced each other in what would become the most brutal and savage campaign the world had seen in a generation; a campaign that could only end in a holocaust of fire and blood.

Fighting for his life, Kanga knows that whatever the outcome, this may well be the last battle in a war that has raged since the dawn of time. But when the dust settles, victory and defeat pay the same price. The Praetorian by D.P Joynes (Dark Fantasy, Magical Realism, Medical Fiction, Historical Fantasy, Time Travel) “Flies. Flies everywhere. In blood...” Artorius, the commanding officer of a Roman army, loves the taste of battle, but he hates the stench of blood. Blood gives rise to flies, which he cannot control. And neither can the Time Witch. Despite all her magical powers, the Witch has no control over the actions of living creatures, so she’ll try every time-tested tactic to tempt the Commander, to get Artorius to do her bidding. But his future self has other plans. Unmoored by Justine Alley Dowsett (Fantasy Adventure) Renaud Laurent is a gambler and a sailor taking life as it comes and living only for his next drink.

Keturah must choose between her love of Lucas and her trust in Elias and decide whether or not to make the ultimate sacrifice. A Touch Of Magic by Lisa White (Magical Realism, Paranormal, Romance, ) Plastic surgeon Jessie Inglewood is staunchly anti-natural medicine. Sure, the owner of the local health food store is sexy, but there’s no way she’s going to the “dark side” and dating a natural health hippy! No, she’s seen a lot of ridiculous things in her clinic over the years, and as far as she’s concerned, holistic nutritionists, naturopaths, chiropractors, and crystal waving energy healers are all the same: unethical quacks and charlatans peddling false hope to the vulnerable. Jessie’s very comfortable with her judgement… until a woman in white appears at her clinic one night and gives her an extraordinary gift – the ability to heal people. Jessie has a choice to make: keep giving hands-on miracles to people or give up her gift so she can have her old life back - the one where her colleagues don’t view her as one of the quacks she used to criticize. The Fortress by Lorel Clayton (Fantasy/ Steampunk) No one is infallible, but some people cannot afford to be wrong, not when lives are at stake. In this story from the world of Eva Thorne, visit The Fortress, where a line in the sand has been drawn to keep the living safe from the god of death. Meet the man who guards that line. Paid In Blood by Tiger Hebert (Dark Epic Fantasy) Harlyx, a wealthy and quite possibly mad old man is wanted for treason after stealing a powerful artifact. His hired hand, Alduran, now finds himself on the run with the crazy old man as a king’s army hunts them down. Alduran isn’t so sure that their flight across the desert sands won’t get them killed, but if he’s learned one thing about old Harlyx, it’s that his mysterious knack for avoiding calamity is at its greatest as the noose draws tightest. It’s a mystery Alduran is ready to explore. Besides, the pay is right.
