English novelist and journalist Christopher Hart assumes the pseudonym “William Napier” as he takes on the infamous personage of Attila the Hun for a trilogy of books spanning the life of the King of the Huns.

Born in 398, Attila spent much of his younger days in exile. After many years of working to unite the various tribes of horse-mounted warriors in Central Asia, Attila and his followers are prepared to fill the void being left by the crumbling Roman Empire at the start of the fifth century. Unlike the Roman armies, Attila is able to unite several different factions of peoples and countries to follow him into battle in a quest to become the dominating power across the continents.

This first novel in the trilogy is rife with historical battles and the saga of lust, power and warfare that brought the Christian world to its knees. More importantly, it depicts the struggle between two powerful men - Attila the Hun, who seeks to conquer the world, and Aetius, the great master general and last of the Romans, who is valiantly trying to save his people and their religion.

Both Attila the man and this novel bearing his name are brutal by nature. He ruthlessly strikes with aggressive force against any man or army that stand against him. Napier keeps up the pace of this savage time in history when life was not precious and all that mattered was global and territorial domination. An exciting read!
