Is resistance always futile?

Recovering from a near fatal shooting, Aurelia Mitela, former foreign minister of Roma Nova, rages at her enforced exile. She barely escaped from Caius Tellus, who grabbed power in her beloved homeland. Aurelia's duty and passion fire her determination to liberate its people despite her lover Miklós's desire to protect her. Then Caius sends a hit squad to murder her...

Caius's manipulations isolated her from her fellow exiles, leaving her ostracised and powerless . But without their trust and support Aurelia knows she will never see her beloved Roma Nova again.

Part political thriller, part deadly personal rivalry, part military adventure, this is Roman fiction brought up to the 20th century and delivers noble ideals, passionate love, desperate choices, sacrifice, constant twists and turns and dialogue with a dash of humour in a timeline not so different from our own...

"A classic tale of resistance and resilience – the only regret is when the action stops." – Douglas Jackson
