Originally published: 2018
Greece, 1821. In the wild south, the people of the Mani have risen up against 400 years of Ottoman rule. But initial triumph leads to bitter feuding among the Greek victors and the Sultan sends his vassal, Ibrahim Pasha of Egypt, to invade. Burning everything in his path, he is on the point of victory. Only the intervention of the Great Powers of France, Russia and Britain can save Greece. Hara, young daughter of a Maniot chief, is the fearless symbol of her people's spirit. When she rescues Greek Prince Tzanis from a shipwreck, on his way to deliver secret gold for the revolution, they fall in love but are forced apart by events.

Book:The walls of Byzantium:2014
Author: Heneage, James
Year: 2014
Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: Heron
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Originally published: 2013 15th-century Europe: in the midst of growing unrest, rivals battle for a hidden treasure, each desperate to secure its power for their own nations. But no-one can discover its whereabouts; nor even knows if it is still in the possession of those born to guard it. Four remarkable characters from four leading families provide the story as their crossed allegiances, plots and passions are played out on this epic scale. Yet the private lives are there too, and in castle and church, in siege and on battlefield, the love, fear, violence and reluctant loyalty to creed or destiny propel the characters to their fates.

Book:The lion of Mistra:2016
Author: Heneage, James
Year: 2016
Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: Heron Books
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Originally published: 2015 Bayezid, leader of the Ottomans, is dead; his heirs, Suleyman and Mehmed, are at war with each other; and the dread Tamerlane, who was on the brink of invading China, is also dead. Luke is now pushed into the role of Protector of Mistra. He is determined to create a strong defence for his remaining region of Byzantium and so decides to build a great wall across the land. For this he will need to utilise the fighting skills of his Varangians, both as the base for his army but even more to become a money-raising mercenary troop. And funds for the great wall will drive Luke to at last discover and use the power of the legendary and long-hidden Varangian treasure.

Book:The towers of Samarcand:2015
Author: Heneage, James
Year: 2015
Language: English
Type: Book
Publisher: Heron Books
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Originally published: 2014 A select band of soldiers led by Luke Magoris are given the mission of persuading Tamerlane to defend Constantinople. The great conqueror must turn his forces to the West to fight the Ottomans, who otherwise would destroy Constantinople and the Byzantine Empire. Luke, torn away from the woman he loves and all he knows, is trained as a Mongol warrior to impress Tamerlane and his army before joining his fellow Varangian guards, descendants of the men who once brought a vital treasure out of Constantinople. It is this treasure, some say, that can still save the empire - uniting the Christian churches of the East and West in one final triumphant crusade to smite the Ottomans.
