AD 150

Lucius Faenius Felix - a battle hardened Tribune, scarred in body and mind - journeys to his home province of Hispania Baetica. Accompanied by his friend Cai Martis - warrior of the Nervii tribe and veteran Praefect of cavalry - Felix has high hopes of recovering his family lands and avenging his father’s murder.

But the soldier's homeland is being terrorised by roving bands of outlaws. Felix and Martis are thrust into a perilous world of powerful men and rival factions. When his brother is captured by one of the gangs Lucius goes in pursuit with his own small band and unwittingly starts a war with a formidable enemy who are not what they initially seem.

Felix's honour is tested when told he must forgo seeking revenge against his father’s killer, Malor, the head of the villainous Castricae clan, as the price for the return of his lands.

Friends and enemies are not always what they seem, as Felix draws Malor’s forces in to give battle.

The soldier will risk everything to see his sense of honour - and desire for vengeance - satisfied.

Recommended for fans of Ben Kane, Simon Scarrow and Conn Iggulden.
