Goblins at the Gates

Currently available at Amazon in paperback or on Kindle.

A quarter million goblins swarm through the province of Dacia. The Empire’s best hope of stopping them lies with a Roman aristocrat who hates the army but who finds himself in command of a border legion, and a barbarian princess who has been exiled from her tribe for using magic. Everyone is swept up in the calamity, including a love-sick boy who makes water statues, an outcast named Fist, and a little girl with a war dog. Everyone will be needed. Not everyone will survive.
