I loved all the Eskaar books. Any more in the offing or anything similar? What about the grandson's story perhaps? Don't leave your writing desk until this is done!
best wishes

I stumbled upon your book, Dawn of Empire, in a Historical Fiction B.C. list on Goodreads. I was looking for books to incorporate into my son's schooling to go along with his ancient history studies this coming year period.

I'm presently reading Dawn of Empire (just finished chpt 9) and am thrilled with your writing style! You have a lovely gift of holding the reader throughout, as well as painting a very vivid picture of the scene.

For sure I will be getting copies of your other books. My only regret is that you have not written anything to cover another ancient history time period, which I can use along side the ancient history lessons.

Wonderful story telling! Please keep giving us more!!

Mr. Barone,
I enjoy the Eskkar and Trella series so much...have read each book several times, including the Eskkar and Bracca serials, and just finished Book 6.

I wonder if there are future episodes that continue with either Sargon as ruler or Eskander as the protagonist.
Best wishes for an enjoyable holiday season.

Since reading The Dawn of EImpire in 2006 I became a fan of your writing. Unfortunately, after 6 years they did not translate the continuation of the saga. Apparently, the publisher went bankrupt, but the truth is that the book has received the best reception (it's been a long haul) from Portuguese readers. So, let me suggest, why don´t you look for another publisher (today I've e-mailed suggesting this to a Portuguese specialty editor, "Saída de Emergência", Lisbon, and hopefully Issue is exceeded).

Mr. Barone, I enorously enjoy yr Eskkar saga, have read all the books many times.
In "Clash of Empires"'s Epilogue (the Lady Trella's talks with their grandson,Escander) you mention/hint at events after "C.of E." up towards the end of Sargon's time.
I sincerely hope you intend to write this story as well!
Best Regards Rolf Bj
