Nazione germanica, Anno Domini 1631. Magdeburg, città del destino e della dannazione, è nuovamente sull’orlo dell’abisso. A disperata difesa, le forze luterane sostenute dal Re di Svezia, ma ancora prive dell’appoggio militare dei principi germanici contrari all’assolutismo asburgico. In feroce attacco, l’esercito dell’Impero cattolico, migliaia di uomini allo stremo a causa di stenti, pestilenze, diserzioni. Un esercito ridotto a una macabra torma barbarica. Da ambo le parti, dominano niente altro che desiderio di morte e voglia di strage.

First published in 1999, This is My Blood is David Niall Wilson's first and most important novel. It is a retelling of the gospel from a very different perspective. When Jesus goes into the desert and is tempted by the devil, there is one temptation added. One of the fallen is raised as a woman to tempt him with the flesh. Instead, the woman, named Mary of Magdalene, falls in love with Jesus and his promise of returning her to Heaven.Cursed to follow him and drink the blood of his followers, Mary walks a fine line between her desire to love and support the Christ, and her burning need to return to Heaven. This novel takes the world of faith, which was the world of men, and of the apostles, and shows it through the eyes of a fallen angel - one who has, in her own words, walked the roads of both Heaven, and Hell. She doesn't believe there is a God...she knows.Faithful to the storyline of the original gospels, only weaving in new things when there are gaps in the old, this is a novel of faith, redemption, and ultimate sacrifice.NEW NOVELS BY DAVID NIALL WILSON: NEVERMORE - A Novel of Love, Loss, and Edgar Allan PoeNevermore is a dark fantasy novel, taking place near the shores of Lake Drummond in The Great Dismal Swamp, featuring Edgar Allan Poe, an artist named Lenore, a crow named Grimm, and much, much more. This novel ties in the toe popular series, The DeChance Chronicles, as well as the novella "The Not Quite Right REverenc Cletus J. Diggs & The Currently Accepted Habits of Nature."KILLER GREEN - Wouldn't you rather be green?If Quentin Tarnatino directed a remake of "Smokey & The Bandit," it might be something like Killer Green - a cross-country, bio-fueled thriller born from a Screenplay created and written on Twitter.

Elisabetta Celestino, a brilliant young archaeologist at work in Rome’s ancient catacombs, has discovered a unique pattern of astrological symbols on an underground wall. She feels sure that evidence of a previously unknown pre-Christian sect lies in an adjacent chamber, and is devastated when the Vatican refuses to support her excavation effort. Ten years later, a cave-in damages the vault, revealing a chamber full of human skeletons that share a disturbing anatomical feature. Elisabetta has joined an Augustinian order following the tragic end of her academic career, but unexpectedly finds herself in a race to solve the secret of the catacomb and prevent an apocalyptic event that threatens the future of humankind. Moving between present-day Europe, 1st-century Rome and Elizabethan England, The Devil Will Come is an exhilarating tale of a battle between the forces of good and evil that has been fought in the shadows through the centuries and across continents—and that both sides are willing to kill to keep secret.

The enemy from within . . . Iranian-born British Commando Major Ray Kerman was a rising star in the SAS -- until he abruptly switched loyalties while on a mission in the Middle East. Fanatically determined to employ his brilliant talents and training in the destruction of those he once swore to protect, he is now General Ravi Rashood, leader of the world's most vicious terrorist organization -- and he has found his ultimate weapon: Barracuda 945. A sleek and silent Russian hunter-killer nuclear submarine that can fire land-attack guided missiles from below the ocean's surface, it is invisible to all pursuers and virtually impossible to track. Yet Admiral Arnold Morgan, the President's National Security Adviser, must somehow marshal America's forces and hunt down this 8,000-ton nightmare of modern warfare before it unleashes its fire and death . . . or the first target to fall will be California.

Witness the rise of the Tudors in the stunning conclusion to Conn Iggulden's powerful retelling of the Wars of the Roses. England, 1470. A divided kingdom cannot stand. King Edward of York has been driven out of England. Queen Elizabeth and her children tremble in sanctuary at Westminster Abbey. The House of Lancaster has won the crown, but York will not go quietly. Desperate to reclaim his throne, Edward lands at Ravenspur with a half-drowned army and his brother Richard at his side. Every hand is against them, every city gate is shut, yet the brothers York go on the attack. But neither sees that their true enemy is Henry Tudor, now grown into a man. As the Red Dragon - 'the man of destiny' - his claim to the throne leads to Bosworth Field and a battle that will call an end to the Wars of the Roses . . .
