A Roman legion annihilated, an imperial agent vanished. Malorix, a deadly agent of the Imperial Secret Service, follows their trail eastward to Parthia and beyond. Haunted by supernatural forces and his own past, he will join forces with Lucian, a deviously subtle spy-handler, as they struggle to unravel a conspiracy to unseat an emperor. To survive Malorix will have to learn what it is to be a leader and confront the terrible spectre that haunts the last survivors of Rome's most infamous legion. Last of the Ninth tells a story of one man's struggle for redemption and belief.
