THE AULD SCOTS YULE
Christmas Traditions of Scotland
To speak of Scottish Christmas traditions may seem like a contradiction in terms. Hogmanay is the big deal; Christmas was suppressed by the Kirk for centuries, and most modern customs were imported from abroad. But once upon a time Scotland did have its own Christmas traditions - games and mummeries, carols and rhymes, dishes and drinks galore.
UNDER THE CLEAR SKY
A sleepy village in the mountains of Cappadocia. Priame lived a quiet life there - until the Romans came.
Her home destroyed, her people slaughtered, Priame is enslaved and dragged halfway across the world in her master's wake. Her brother Troilos vows to find her: but before he can, he too will fall into the greedy hands of the Republic.
From the palaces of Rome to the battlefields of Spain; from the pirate dens of Cilicia to the bloody arena of Capua; and ultimately to the far shores of Britain and the house of Queen Penarddun, they pursue freedom, vengeance, and each other.
