Imperial fire

Imperial fire

Lyndon, Robert, author

In the world after 1066, vast empires clamour for dominance. From the Normans in the north to the Byzantines in the south, battles rage across Europe and around its fringes. But in the east, an empire still mightier stirs, wielding a weapon to rule the world: gunpowder. Seeking the destructive might of this 'fire drug', the mercenary Vallon is sent by the defeated Byzantine emperor on a secret and near-impossible quest to the far off land of Song Dynasty China
