A Novella by

 
 
Beltane, AD425
Northern Britain

Midnight approaches and in Dun Breatann's great hall the Beltane feasting continues, with stories and songs and as much meat and ale as anyone could wish for.
On the western side of the towering fortress however, ten small figures make their way up the shadowy rock. Armed to the teeth, and hand-picked for their particular, deadly skills, these warriors have travelled far across the sea from Dalriada and are utterly focused on their mission, despite the fact most - perhaps all - of them will die this night.
High above, guards patrol the fortress walls as usual, but they expect yet another quiet shift for, as everyone knows, Dun Breatann is impregnable.
Isn't it?

This brand new novelette was written during the COVID-19 lockdown specifically to provide much-needed entertainment and escapism for adventure fiction fans. So pour yourself a mug of ale (or coffee!), sit back, and join the legendary warrior-druid Bellicus for another exciting tale of fifth-century Britain.
