Kurzbeschreibung

Livianus is bored and longs for action. His reward for serving Rome is the governorship of a quiet corner of Gaul, but as he whiles away his days at his sumptuous villa, his thoughts turn to Attila the Hun, the feared barbarian with whom Livianus once enjoyed an intimate friendship. When a desperate emperor asks him to return to Pannonia to broker a truce with Attila, Livianus's old passion flares.

Attila is losing the will to go on. He is tired of being a tyrant but his people's future depends on him. The arrival of Livianus renews Attila's spirit as he prepares to march on Constantinople. Livianus has nothing to bargain with, but when the emperor's sister delivers a proposition for Attila, a new and brighter future seems to lay directly ahead. For the people, and especially for the two men.

But the deadly hand of the emperor isn't interested in peace, and as their plans are destroyed, only one course of action remains open to the Hun and the general.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Winner 3. Februar 2012
Von Pandy
Format:Kindle Edition
Oh, this really did it for me. I have always loved ancient history and La Roche usese his enviable writing talents to take us to Gaul then to Pannonia. Attila the Hun is not the most obvious choice for a romantic lead but the author pulls it off admirably. If you only read one gay book, read this. And if you're hooked, check La Roche's other works: On My Knees Fixed Lorenzo il Magnifico

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Change of Time and Place for Tristram La Roche 9. Dezember 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Tristram La Roche takes us far back in time for his latest novella and does an excellent job of it too. This is certainly not the history your teacher told you about! It is creative, imaginative and the sex is hot, urgent and earthy (there is a pun there but you'll have to read the story to find out. I don't do spoilers!). La Roche just keeps getting better. The tone of this novella is distinct from any of his previous work and the language he uses works well in this setting. Looking forward to the next from this already prolific author. Highly recommended for adults.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Blown Away 3. Dezember 2011
Von Pandy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I've been waiting for this novella since La Roche first announced it on Goodreads. I bought it yesterday (not from Amazon I must admit) and read it last night. I'll just say that I am a convert to the novella format; they are just the right length for my train journeys or European flights. This story is so well-written it is at times like being there or watching a movie; I loved Chapter 2 especially (well, I loved them all), the introduction to Livianus, his villa...I could take that! Unlike a lot of traditional romance, this is very much plot driven and the pace really carries you along. I loved the intrigue, the play of strength and ruthlessness against passion and tenderness. To my mind, this is a classic. La Roche's novellas are stand alone, so you can read them in any order. On My Knees Lorenzo il Magnifico Fixed Yes, I am a confirmed fan now and not ashamed to admit it.

4.0 von 5 Sternen The Hun and the General 15. März 2012
Von Lena Grey - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I like to think that there is a good side to everyone; it's just harder to see in some than in others. It's easy to see the good in someone like Mother Theresa or The Dali Lama; but what about someone like Attila the Hun? Known for his bloodthirsty quest for power and cold-blooded disregard for life, it's hard to conceive that he may, indeed, have had a softer side. In 'The Hun and the General', Tristam LaRoche paints a very atypical image of Attila and manages to do so with little compromise to his malevolent reputation. Tristam reminds us that everybody needs somebody sometime, and, in Attila's case, it's the very unlikely choice of a Roman general named Livianus.

Calling this a love story would be stretching the definition to the limit. Their relationship was certainly one of respect, trust, and lust, but it was far from what most of us would call romantic. Yet, even though it was difficult for me to become emotionally attached to either character the way I have in most books I've read, Tristam did an excellent job of portraying the relationship between Attila and Livianus as mutually satisfying. I could feel Attila's great relief when Livianus arrived, especially in a time when Attila desperately needed counsel and physical satisfaction. He needed someone whom he could 'let his hair down' with. Livianus is the one person on earth that Attila feels no need to impress and most certainly the only one with whom Attila can satisfy his desire to be submissive. In the cruel times in which they live, where nothing and no one was sacred, that is a rare gift indeed. Livianus recognizes it as such too, and cherishes their bond as much as Attila does. They have found a special place in each other's heart, whatever anyone may call it, where no one else is permitted to be and that alone is noteworthy.

This is not a story for the faint of heart. It's bold, brutal, and cruel, yet Tristam's portrayal of these events makes it compelling because even with the dark side of the story, it is so well written that I wanted to see it through. I'd recommend 'The Hun and the General' to anyone who can appreciate a graphically told history lesson, intertwined with a great deal of poetic license to create a dynamic effect. Thank you, Tristam, for a very unique look into this era of time.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A fast-paced novel 5. Dezember 2011
Von Sue Roebuck - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Tristram la Roche is a prolific writer of M/M fiction. His latest, "The General and the The Hun", must surely stand out as his best yet.

This time he's taking his reader back to ancient Rome and he's taken on two formidable main characters: Attila "The Scourge of God" the Hun and influential Livianus the Roman General and Governor. Our image of Attila is not altered by la Roche who throws no "fairy dust" over these two battle-worn characters. Attila remains short, broad-chested, small eyes and thin beard, while Livianus is no beauty. Yet the characters shine with their depth of spirit, bravery, quick wittedness, intelligence and sharp tongues. Intrigue and suspense abound in a fast paced plot. I found myself holding my breath as Livianus crossed the line into the territory of the Huns, renowned for their cruelty and "take no prisoners" tactics.
I read this novel feverishly, it pulled me in and held me captive right to the end at which time I wondered (and hoped) if there'll be a sequel. Tristram la Roche proves to be a craftsman at story-telling and that he's carving a deserved niche in literature.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Ancient History and Sexual Chemistry 4. Dezember 2011
Von Julia Kavan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The Hun and The General is a love story set in violent times. This is isn't a traditional 'soft' romance, and I found the relationship between the two strong male characters both captivating and intriguing. Tristram builds the tension leading up to the men meeting very nicely and the chemistry between Attila and Livianus is well written. Their friendship is heart warming, and the erotic scenes between these two men are very masculine, down to earth (literally in one case), and powerfully sensual. There are a couple of twists along the way, perhaps brutal to our eyes now, but in fitting with the time in which the story is set. I love short stories and novellas - this was a very enjoyable evening's read.
