Welcome to Eagles and Dragons Publishing!

We are an independent publishing company based in Toronto, Canada and our goal is this:

To bring the ancient and medieval worlds to life through high-quality historical fiction and fantasy.

Storytelling

Too often, history is poorly taught in schools, leaving people with a negative opinion of anything having to do with the past.

At Eagles and Dragons Publishing, we believe that history can be exciting, accessible, and above all entertaining.

We believe that the past is crucial to understanding ourselves and the world around us. History does repeat itself, and only by understanding it can we truly better the world in which we live.

History

Our books and stories are not intended to bore readers. They are intended to grab you by both wrists and throw you headlong into the terrible beauty of the past.

We want you to experience the magic and mystery of the ancient and medieval worlds, to come face to face with the people of the past as well as their beliefs, their loves and hates, their hopes, and their achievements.

And we do this by creating well-researched, carefully-crafted stories that are gripping, thought-provoking, and inspiring.

Mythology

 

Why ‘Eagles’ and ‘Dragons’?

Our stories focus on the ancient and medieval worlds, mainly the civilizations of ancient Greece and Rome, as well as medieval Europe.

In ancient Greece and Rome, the Eagle was a symbol of the Gods’ power, a personification of the great gods. It was also symbol of victory, inspiration and valour. The Eagle was the messenger of Zeus and of Jupiter, and the supreme emblem of Rome’s Legions, the Aquila.

In both ancient and early medieval cultures, the Dragon was a creature of power, of wisdom and of prophecy. For Eagles and Dragons Publishing, the Dragon also represents Celtic culture and the Arthurian period.

Historical Fiction

Here is what some of our readers have to say about Eagles and Dragons:

Historic Novel Society review: 

“…Haviaras handles it all with smooth skill. The world of third-century Rome—both the city and its African outposts—is colourfully vivid here, and Haviaras manages to invest even his secondary and tertiary characters with believable, three-dimensional humanity.”

on Goodreads:  

“… a very entertaining read; Haviaras has both a fluid writing style, and a good eye for historical detail, and explores in far more detail the faith of the average Roman than do most authors.”

on Epinions:

“Well written historical drama with an eye for detail… I can’t wait for the next book… There is so much more misery and mischief to puzzle and vex our worthy Metellus.”

Amazon Readers: 

“Historical fiction at its best! … if you like your historical fiction to be an education as well as a fun read, this is the book for you!”

“An outstanding and compelling novel!”

“I would add this author to some of the great historical writers such as Conn Iggulden, Simon Scarrow and David Gemmell. The characters were described in such a way that it was easy to picture them as if they were real and have lived in the past, the book flowed with an ease that any reader, novice to advanced can enjoy and become fully immersed…”
