Centurion of the First

A Novella by

Hadrian's Wall, Roman Britain, AD 140: Centurion Lucius Pontius Aquila of the Sixth Legion is sent north to a new wall, the construcition of which has been ordered by the new emperor, Antoninus Pius.

At first all goes well, but then a mercy mission goes disastrously wrong. Deep in enemy territory, pursued by overwhelming numbers of hostile tribesmen, can Aquila - or any of his men - survive?

PLEASE NOTE: This is a NOVELLA, not a full length novel. To be pedantic, it is far longer than a traditional short story (6-8,000 words), and about 25,000 words in length.

It came about as a result of my Kickstarter campaigns, which have taken place 5 times now. Look me up on Facebook - if you want to vote on the novella I will write each November/December.

Thanks, and happy reading - Ben
