The Scourge of GodBook - 2004
This arresting historical novel deals with the rivalry between two great men whose friendship turns to enmity as one (Attila the Hun) becomes corrupted by power, while the other (Aetius) is ennobled by it. Ross Laidlaws masterfulportrayal of these two figures is based on his intimate knowledge of the times and is written in a narrative style that vividly evokes the brutality, decadence and desperation of this fascinating period of history.
