Our story begins...

In what would be A.D. 600 in our history, the Roman Empire still stands, supported by the twin pillars of the Legions and Thaumaturges of Rome. Now the Emperor of the West, the Augustus Galen Atreus, will come to the aid of the Emperor of the East, the Augustus Heraclius, to lift the siege of Constantinople and carry a great war to the very doorstep of the Shahanshah of Persia. It is a war that will be fought with armies both conventional and magical, with bright swords and the darkest necromantic sorceries...

"Against this richly detailed canvas of alternate history and military strategy, novelist Thomas Harlan sets the fantastically intricate and moving stories of four people."

The Shadow of Ararat has also been published in French (in two parts, as "L'Ombre d'Ararat" and "Les Clefs du Pouvoir" by Fleuve Noir).

Foreign sales have also been made in Germany (to Heyne Verlag), Poland (Proszynski), the Czech Republic (Classic) and Bulgaria (Arhont). No publication dates are known at this time for these editions.

Some copies of the paperback skip directly from page 334 to page 367. Here is the missing text!
