BRITAIN, AD 305.
Once a member of the crack legions of the Danube frontier, Centurion Aurelius Castus has known the might of the Roman empire in war, as he has known its great expanse, marching from one border to another.
But now, Castus finds himself relegated to the crumbling British stronghold of Eboracum, regarded with suspicious awe by the provincial troops; just another veteran brooding upon his past triumphs in this frozen, uncivilised backwater. Until the king of the savage peoples beyond Hadrian's Wall dies in mysterious circumstances, and Castus is sent into enemy territory to negotiate with the barbarous chieftains of the Picts...
Read information about the authorIan Ross was born in England and studied painting before turning to writing fiction. He has travelled widely and worked as a bookseller, tutor and university lecturer while developing his writing abilities. A year in Italy teaching English and exploring the ruins of empire reawakened his early love for ancient history, and he returned to the UK with growing fascination for the period known as late antiquity. He has been researching and writing about the later Roman world and its army for over a decade, and his interests combine an obsessive regard for accuracy and detail with a devotion to the craft of storytelling.
