Tony. Just finished THe Lombard. I love how you bring Casca from the present, giving an insight of what Casca is up to now in present times and telling his stories to Landries, then adding a twist that he is taking the stories to Goldman who is writing stories about Casca, a fictional character in modern times. Love these twists. I know it’s been done before and I always enjoy it. My review. Great story loved it just because of this. Loved also how he meets his adopted son and Delia from the past and how they are carrying on his name. Must read for any Casca fan.

Casca 48 (My review on Amazon) –
Casca And The Invasion Of Europe In 1683
Casca, a Roman legionnaire, used his spear to kill Christ when Christ was crucified. For this act he was cursed to live forever as a soldier-for-hire, to become Casca, the Eternal Mercenary. The year 1683 finds Casca in Austria, caught up in the historic invasion of Europe by the Ottoman Turks, specifically the attack of Vienna by the Turks. Casca wants revenge on the Turks for past fatal wrongdoings and sides with the Austrians. This tale is another of the author’s rousing, action-filled tales where Casca is in the thick of the fiercest battles against overpowering odds and plays a large part in the outcome.
I highly recommend this book, and the whole series, for those who enjoy historic stories of action and adventure.

Casca 49 – The Lombard (My review on Amazon) –
Traveling And Battling Around Northern Italy, Circa 550 A. D.
This tale occurs after the events in Casca – The Avenger. The summary of this book here on its website implies that most of the story is about Casca avenging himself on Narses of the evil Brotherhood Of The Lamb. They only meet towards the end of the story. Most of the book is about Casca living among the Lombards of southern Germania and northern Italy (today called Lombardy). He joins the Lombards in their territorial battles against the Goths and other “barbarian” peoples that have replaced the Romans in Europe after Rome fell about 75 years prior.

Casca meets a woman with whom he falls in love (as much as he can, being immortal – read the story for details why this is). She accompanies him on the various large battles his tribe is engaged in. There are also, personal fights using bare hands and various weapons as Casca resists the attemped bulleyings by others.

The author writes another exciting and descriptive tale that takes you to a different time and place in this fast-paced historical series. Highly recommended.
