From the author of the Sunday Times bestsellers The Honour of Rome and The Emperor’s Exile comes a brilliant new novel about the dangerous warrior Caratacus – a barbarian who threatened the future of the Empire . . .
The Romans invaded Britannia in AD 43 confident of victory. They swept through a divided and ill-equipped enemy, scattered across tough terrain. But one man was not prepared to surrender. Caratacus – quick-witted youngest son of a a tribal king – had been trained from birth to be a warrior of power and grit. Sent to be schooled by the Druids in his boyhood, his training meant that an already strong and cunning prince returned to his father’s kingdom as a war machine . . .
With Caratacus driving them forward, the tribes prepare to repulse an enemy anticipating an easy victory. Fighting not only to stay alive but for their very way of life, these men form a mighty force. The battle is on!
The brand new series from the Sunday Times bestselling authors of Invader and Pirata: Warrior, the story of Britannia’s barbarian warlord Caratacus.
