Destiny's Shield (Belisarius Saga, Book 3)
EVIL FROM BEYOND TIME
The Malwa Empire squats like a toad across 6th century India. The people who command the Malwa bureaucracy and armies are cruel, ruthless men with depraved appetites which their power permits them to indulge to the full.
The thing from the distant future that commands them is far worse.
AN ADVISOR WITHOUT A BODY
Those who oppose the pustulent Hell the Malwa will make of Earth have sent a crystal, Aide, to halt their advance. Aide holds all human knowledge -- but Aide cannot act by himself.
A CHAMPION FOR ALL TIMES
Count Belisarius, the greatest general of Byzantium and perhaps the greatest of all time, must defeat the Malwa and the enemies of humankind which direct the evil empire.
With Aide's advice --
With the support of Empress Theodora --
With the courage and ruthless skill of his wife Antonina --
And with a few thousand of the best soldiers in the world, Belisarius must face the Malwa invaders beyond Rome's borders. Maneuvering through Mesopotamia inunfamiliar,terrain and the risk of doubtful allies, Belisarius must outwit powerful enemies -- and then, when there is no longer room to maneuver, to meet them sword-edge to sword-edge.
