Author Peter Darman (Grantham, Lincolnshire-United Kingdom)

In a former life I used to be a research officer with the British Defence Intelligence Staff, compiling reports on the military capacity of the Warsaw Pact.

But then I decided to enter the world of mainstream publishing, and for the last 20 years I have been writing military history books.

You can find out more about me and my writing by taking a look at my website:

Featured Book: Usurper (Parthian Chronicles Book 7) by Peter Darman

Doting father? Man of peace?

These things are not you, Pacorus.

Have you not heard of the hydra? Cut off one of its heads and two more will replace it. You defeat one enemy and another springs forth to torment you, just as the gods torment you with endless strife.

After the defeat of Mark Antony Pacorus has returned to the city of Dura to prepare for a happier campaign: the wedding of his daughter to a prince of a kingdom on the eastern frontier of the Parthian Empire.

Pacorus and his family and friends travel to the east to attend the wedding of Princess Isabella, but old scores need to be settled and a new power is rising beyond the Indus that will threaten the empire itself. Can Pacorus and the surviving Companions can save the empire and the reign of the young, duplicitous king of kings from the barbarian hordes in the east?

‘Usurper’ followers on from ‘Sons of the Citadel’.

A map of the Parthian Empire can be found on the maps page of my website:
