The Massilian

Frederic Belmedioni

A young merchant finds himself embroiled in the conspiracies and intrigues of Hadrian's Empire when he inherits his family's business after his father's murder.

Vibius Juventius Stolo is the youngest of three sons born to a Conductore in Massilia. The attack on his father's merchant boat and the murder of everyone on board leads him to take over his family's business while consumed by revenge. In his quest for justice, Stolo finds himself inducted into one of the most daring legions in the whole of the Empire as a Condoctore and takes advantage of a conflict against Parthia to pursue the pirates. Along the way, he is joined by a motley crew of ex-gladiators, soldiers, slaves and nobles to whom the promise of battle and recognition in Rome is more precious than gold itself. Stolo will find that true friendship and love are a rarity amongst the people of Rome, and that his quest will disturb the schemes of more powerful foes than mere pirates.

Good subject, superb writing. The story moves right along and the narative feels natural. Julia is real, present. I love your sentence structures, it gets the scenes tremendous vivacity, and what an imagination! I'm sad I haven't got the time to read it all and I know I will. Highly rated, backed... view book

I'm always glad to see that someone enjoys my writing and isn't that the point of writing a book? To please our readers? There'll be more to come and, meanwhile, your criticism is welcome as well. That's how we grow. Thank you for your interest, sensual elle. view book

Thank you for your comment and your support, Temulkar! I'm sorry for the bold font and will deal with it shortly. As for Stolo, yes, he is kind of a classic hero but he also does have his flaws, if only by virtue of his young age. As a matter of fact, his flaws ( impetuousness, lack of defe... view book

Thank you very much, Aminul, for your encouraging comment. I've had a long hiatus between what I've posted so far and the continuation of the story and for that I apologize to anyone who's been interested in it and been waiting to see what happens.

Dr J. I appreciate your comments and support. thank you. This story has been growing since '92. I'm in no hurry to get it published; it's a goal but not a pressing one, I'm busy elsewhere a lot of my time. Yet I have book 2 already simmering in the back of my mind, but as you put... view book
