Carina Mitela is still a young inexperienced officer in the Praetorian Guard Special Forces of Roma Nova. Disgraced and smarting from a period in the cells for a disciplinary offence, she is sent out of everybody's way on a seemingly straightforward mission overseas.
All she and her comrade-in-arms, Flavius, have to do is bring back a traitor from the Republic of Quebec. Under no circumstances will she risk entering the Eastern United States where she is still wanted under her old name Karen Brown. But when she and Flavius discover a conspiracy that reaches to the highest levels of Roma Nova, what price is personal danger against fulfilling the mission?
This is Roman fiction brought up to the present through alternate history. Set in the time after INCEPTIO but before PERFIDITAS in the Roma Nova series, this short military adventure reveals hidden parts of Carina's early life in Roma Nova. And North America isn't quite the continent we know in our timeline…
