In this novel of magical menace to the survival of all humanity, David Drake introduces a new fantasy world, Carce, based on Europe during the later Roman Empire.

Far in the north, a group of magicians perform a strange dance on a volcanic island intended to open a gateway for supernatural creatures that will allow them to devastate the whole Earth and destroy all life. Two young men, Corylus and Varus, and two women, Hedia and Alphena, separately pursue the answer to mysterious happenings in Carce, the center of civilization.  Through magical voyages in other realities where fantastic creatures, and even gods, help or hinder them, each of them must succeed or the world will end in fire.

Praise for The Legions of Fire

Praise for David Drake:

“David Drake writes fantasy with the texture of the legends of yore.”
--Terry Goodkind

“David Drake’s work . .  is original, engrossing, and instantly credible."
--Stephen R. Donaldson

“David Drake is thought of as a military SF author, but he’s actually written more fantasy than anything else in his long and impressive career. If you want to know why, read The Legions of Fire. Drake is one of the best fantasy writers this genre has ever produced.”
--Eric Flint, author of 1632

“Drake vividly recreates the attitudes of patrician Romans in this fantasy tale….Fans of fantasy and historical fiction will enjoy the decidedly non-contemporary characters and their adventures.”
--Publishers Weekly
