A novel by

'Tosh takes his band of heroes through an ancient heart of darkness. An epic adventure that will leave warriors changed and have the reader’s pulse-rate soaring!' Fiona Forsyth, author of the Lucius Sestius Mysteries.

Northern Britannia AD 149.

Roman Tribune, Lucius Faenius Felix and his friend the veteran Prefect of cavalry, Cai Martis, have survived and been victorious against the combined force of the northern tribes.

The battle for the Sack has saved the north, but victory has turned to despair.

Cai’s woman, Alyn, and widow of his dead friend Adal, is missing, taken captive by the fleeing barbarians. His love for Alyn and the need to honour his oath to Adal, impels Cai to act.

The veteran must seek the help of his defeated enemy Barra, the Novantae chief, and venture into hostile territory. It is his only hope.

Cai, Lucius and a small band of soldiers set off. The hunt is on.

But a new enemy stands in their way. An ambitious Damnonii war chief, called Blue Dog. The band uncovers intelligence that he may have taken Alyn. All that is known of him, is that his lands are on a remote island. And he is mad.

The hunters may soon become the prey.

To protect those that he loves, Cai must first kill a king and save a kingdom.

Alistair Tosh was born and raised in the Dumfriesshire countryside. He now lives in north Lancashire with his wife and dog.
