Product Description

The Serpent’s Curse encloses pages of lively ancient realities, mixed together with real life and emotions. The action of the novel takes place between years 106-108 A.D., in the newly established Roman province Dacia Felix, and has the Roman tribune Titus Avitius Germanus, a cohort commander, as its main character. The tribune finds himself caught up having to decide between the upright orders he receives from Rome and the objective realities he witnesses in Dacia. The dynamic battle scenes and the detailed descriptions of combat techniques and territorial-administrative organization of both armies fuse together with the strong emotions, the enthusiasm and the shaping of the numerous characters, building up this unique historical novel. The Serpent’s Curse, cast over their treasures by the Dacian people, stands to be their ultimate defense in the face of the relentless greed of the Roman Empire.

„Caesar was the first Roman emperor to have attempted the conquest of Dacia. But then, the great king Burebista, who ruled over the vast Dacian territories, managed – through his diplomacy and politics – to eliminate the danger. However, the Empire’s endless greed and desire of expansion went on until, one century and a half later, one of the „five good emperors”, perhaps the most notorious – Marcus Ulpius Nerva Traianus – turned his attention back to the riches of Dacia. The mineral resources, natural wealth and fertile lands had to be added to the Roman map. The first war almost put the powerful empire into bankruptcy because of the losses and the grimness of the “savages” who refused to abdicate in the face of Roman domination. But after another three years, during which a daring architectural project took shape under the command of Apollodorus of Damask, the terms of the war have shifted. Apollodorus built a bridge over Danubius, and this allowed the Roman Legions to cross the river.
The conquering of Dacia could no longer be avoided and Decebalus, the last Dacian king, chose an honorable death: taking his own life and leaving behind him the legacy of a mysterious treasure that surpassed the limits of any imagination, hidden under the greatest secrecy and protected by a terrible curse.
Seven months have passed since his death and, along with the return of emperor Trajan (who led the attack) to Rome, the new province was still in the process of transformation. Abuses, robberies and other iniquities of Roman soldiers found their response in violent, flashing attacks of the Dacian warriors, who were still hiding in the mountains. Obedience was to never be willingly accepted.”
