A new era in Rome has begun, for both the budding Empire, and the descendants of Titus Pullus, Legionary of Rome. In this next chapter in the bestselling, critically acclaimed Marching With Caesar® saga, the torch has passed to Pullus' namesake and adopted grandson, Titus Porcinianus Pullus. Blessed with not only the name and legacy of his adoptive grandfather but his enormous size and strength as well, young Titus enlists in the Legions. Following in the footsteps of his father Gaius Porcinus, Titus joins the Fourth Cohort of the 8th Legion, once commanded by Porcinus himself. But what Titus discovers is that the example set by his father and grandfather brings with it a heavy price, in the form of extra scrutiny and high expectations. Adding to his burden is an atmosphere of suspicion, intrigue and ominous portents as the 8th Legion joins the army of Nero Claudius Drusus, younger brother of Tiberius, on what will turn out to be his final campaign in Germania, as the upper classes of Rome begin to prepare for a world after Augustus. Will young Titus find himself an unwilling participant in a conspiracy designed to advance the fortunes of one Roman nobleman over the others vying for control of Rome?
