The Ninth Legion marched into the mists of northern Britain...and they were never seen again. Four thousand men disappeared and their eagle standard was lost.

Following on from this are The Silver Branch in which two young soldiers uncover a plot to overthrow the Emperor, and the Carnegie Medal-winning, The Lantern Bearers which is set at a time when the Romans are leaving the shores of Britain and tells of Aquila and his quest for revenge. This beautiful boxed set of these three classic stories is the perfect gift for readers young and old.
