PRAISE

‘A new book in Simon Scarrow’s series about the Roman army is always a joy’ The Times

‘A thoroughly exciting novel . . . stands alone well in its own right as a piece of Roman military historical fiction, while also strongly affirming that there is a lot of life left in this enjoyable and popular series’

forwinternights.wordpress.com

‘Makes the series fresh again, a new depth to Macro and Cato, a new edge to the Roman world and conflicts in Britannia, all achieved with style and a simply splendid plot line. Highly recommended’ Parmenion Books

‘Gripping . . . ferocious and compelling, it is a story of blood, romance and sacrifice’ Daily Express

‘Scarrow’s [novels] rank with the best’ Independent

‘Gripping’ Sunday Times

ABOUT THE BOOK

AD 54. The soldiers of the Roman army patrol a vast Empire, enforcing imperial rule with brutal efficiency. In Hispania, tensions have reached boiling point. Bands of rebels range over the land. A unit of the army’s finest, supported by the feared Praetorian Guard, is dispatched to restore the peace. Their commander is Vitellius, a veteran of unmatched ambition.
