He has had many enemies but has seen most of them to their graves.But now he is facing defeat, cut off with his army and surrounded by the heretic Getae and the fanatical Vleds.

As the barbarians close in, the Master of Offices entrusts to the Emperor’s young son Elias, both a manuscript recording the true history of the Old Emperor’s reign and a letter for his own son, Galen.When reports reach the capital of the defeat of the Old Emperor and the destruction of his army, long-repressed dissent is unleashed and civil war and invasion follow.

Galen’s world falls apart. But Priscus, a tough peasant soldier with connections to Galen’s family, finds opportunities in the chaos.When the Getae king Odovoric becomes the new emperor he sends Priscus and Galen on an embassy to the Vled. Priscus is sent because he is an effective killer.

Galen is sent because he can identify Elias. Though they do not yet know it, the ruthless soldier and the effete aristocrat will find that they have a lot in common.Secret Histories is set in a world that resembles the late Western Roman Empire, when barbarians had just taken control, but the Empire’s culture and institutions continued to operate.Says award-winning author Ursula Dubosarsky about Secret Histories: ‘I thought it was fascinating and very readable.’
