The Reluctant Barbarian by John Haas

Fantasy comedy

Arthur Jenkins would have been happy to live his life the way it was until he finally died, but the angel in his office has different ideas. He’s there to grant a wish Arthur made as a kid, and it’s a doozy. It’s also a wish he doesn’t want in the slightest. After all, what grown man would want to be a barbarian hero? Seriously!

Whether he wants it or not, Arthur is getting that wish granted. Angels have quotas too, you know.

Join Arthur, Dead Mike and Valeria the Paladin on a quest across the land, having unwanted adventures while looking for a comfy place to sit.

Daughters of Britain by S. M. Carriere


68 ad.


The Roman Empire has swallowed most of Europe.

There are pockets of resistance…

but nowhere, no one, is safe.

Refugee. Slave. Queen.

Mederei, eldest daughter of the fallen war-queen Boudicca, fled north with her sister to continue the fight for British freedom.

But nowhere is safe from Rome.

Now she must fight for her life for the amusement of her enemy.


Soldier. Hostage. Prince.

Adalbern, a proud Batavian, serving in the Roman auxiliary,

lived by their rules.

But no one is safe from Rome.

His people scattered and his nephew held hostage in Rome itself, he is now nothing more than a glorified prisoner.

It’s life or death both in the arena and out for Mederei and Adalbern as they try to survive and save their people.
