Fifth century Barbarian King Attila the Hun's ruthless expansion of the Hunnic Empire is the stuff of legend and of many books, films and academic essays.
New Zealand writer JA Grierson has released the first in a trilogy of books about this period called The Last of the Romans Trilogy. Rivers Ran Red offers the perspective of a defiant Roman General Avitus who tries to unite his divided people against the Scourge of God.
The book covers the epic Battle of the Catalaunian Plains between the Roman forces and the Huns.
