It is 455 AD, and the Roman Empire is at war with the brutal Huns. Their allies move in the shadows with plans that most certainly are not in Rome’s best interest.
Roman politics are cut-throat and ruthless. Emperor Valentinian’s desperation and desire for blood has him plotting against his most successful general, Flavius Aetius.
In the middle of this uncertain atmosphere, Tribune Lucius Bernius is cutting his teeth on his first command assignment. Destined for the front lines, he faces overwhelming odds with strange allies. The world around him is crumbling, and he faces the destruction of all he holds dear.
