In the second century BC nature’s fury and the instinct for survival sparked the beginning of an unprecedented tribal migration that would last centuries, eventually bringing about the dark ages and threatening the destruction of Rome itself. As other barbarian tribes join their cause, the Germanic Cimbri embark on an epic journey lasting two decades wandering throughout Europe, seeking a new homeland, finding only a desperate fight for their very existence. Rebuffed by hostile tribes and betrayed by a treacherous Roman consul, the Cimbri are forced into a fight they tried to avoid, and inflict a terrible price for Roman arrogance.
Jeff Hein loves to write historical fiction that is grounded in facts that refer to the writings of ancient and modern historians and the discoveries of modern archeology. Jeff has traveled the world and had the good fortune to walk in the footsteps of many of his characters. When visiting these ancient sites, he feels the ghosts of those who went before him that are tied to the land they lived upon. Writing about history is a passion and he loves the challenge of weaving historical and archaeological facts with believable fiction and interesting characters into a seamless and fascinating story. With a heavy dose of action, adventure, romance and intrigue he writes with the hope of transporting the reader to another time and place. At the end of the story, he hopes the reader will have learned something about actual history and shared a personal adventure with the author.
