(2021)
(The first book in the City of Victory series)
A novel by

 
 
From bestselling historian Adrian Goldsworthy, a profoundly authentic, action-packed adventure set on Rome's Danubian frontier.

AD 105: DACIA

The Dacian kingdom and Rome are at peace, but no one thinks that it will last. Sent to command an isolated fort beyond the Danube, centurion Flavius Ferox can sense that war is coming, but also knows that enemies may be closer to home.

Many of the Brigantes under his command are former rebels and convicts, as likely to kill him as obey an order. And then there is Hadrian, the emperor's cousin, and a man with plans of his own.

Reviews for the Vindolanda Trilogy:

'No one knows the Roman army better than Adrian Goldsworthy, and no one writes more convincing Roman fiction' Harry Sidebottom
'An authentic, enjoyable read' The Times
'Gritty and realistic ... Goldsworthy's characters are authentically ancient and his descriptions of Roman Britain ring true'Daily Telegraph (Sydney).
