The island is at peace, enjoying an unprecedented age of prosperity. But from beyond the northern frontier come unsettling rumours: the barbarians are rising, eager to prey on the riches of the south. As the shadow of war looms, Cironius Agnus Paulus, a young soldier with a secret past, becomes ensnared in a conspiracy that endangers the home he has forsaken and the family he loves.
Epic in scope, rich with historical detail, this is a novel of Roman Britain on the cusp of the Dark Ages, when all that stands between her citizens and oblivion is one family.
Dr. John Henry Clay is a Lecturer in History at the University of Durham, from where he has built up an international research reputation in Anglo-Saxon and Frankish history and archaeology.
