ORION FICTION JANUARY 2013

Philip Kazan Appetite

Florence, 1466...a lust for life, a taste for death and a passion for power. Appetite is a story of lethal longing, the sensuous life of art and food against a backdrop of deadly powerplays, and a city that won its place in history with equal measures of genius and treachery. Philip Kazan studied medieval history at London University and later worked as a reader for a literary agency. He now lives in Devon with his family.

Christian Cameron Tyrant: Destroyer of Cities

The fifth volume in the Tyrant series brings the epic siege of Rhodes in 306BC to life. Demetrius was perhaps the most charismatic of the Macedonian generals who fought for the spoils of Alexander’s short-lived empire. Still smarting from his epic defeat at the hands of Ptolemy, Demetrius has his eye on the naval superpower of Rhodes. But the Rhodians know that defeat will mean annihilation, and Demetrius’s campaign will entail five separate naval battles over several years before he can begin to breach the city walls... Christian Cameron is a writer and military historian. He lives in Toronto. http://hippeis.com
