'A master of the genre' The Times

Marcus Valerius Aquila has scarcely landed in Britannia when he has to run for his life - condemned to dishonorable death by power-crazed emperor Commodus. The plan is to take a new name, serve in an obscure regiment on Hadrian's Wall and lie low until he can hope for justice. Then a rebel army sweeps down from the wastes north of the Wall, and Marcus has to prove he's hard enough to lead a century in the front line of a brutal, violent war.

I'm a huge nerd for Rome and I absolutely love this series! It is well thought out and I love the battle scenes where the auxilliary troops face overwhelming odds and come out ahead (testament to the discipline and training Roman soldiers received). Overall, great series!
