Rebellion in imperial Rome. Not the 3rd century but the 20th century

Caius Tellus wants to seize power in Roma Nova. Founded at the collapse of the old Roman Empire fifteen hundred years ago the tiny state now faces meltdown. Aurelia Mitela, chief imperial councillor, vows to stop him. But Caius is also on a personal vendetta – to destroy Aurelia herself.

But Roma Nova in the early 1980s is paralysed by a ruler afraid to rule. Old laws are choking reform. Fear sparks riots only to be flamed and exploited by a rising nationalist movement.

Aurelia fights to combat increasing catastrophe engulfing Roma Nova, but is she too late?

Part political thriller, part deadly personal rivalry, INSURRECTIO is Roman fiction brought into the 20th century through an alternate history lens with a strong female protagonist with heart and courage leading the action.

"A taut, fast-paced thriller and I enjoyed it enormously. Rome, guns and rebellion. Darkly gripping stuff." – Conn Iggulden
