Roman Britain, AD 44. General Plautius' hard-won defeat of Caratacus should have brought peace. But though the land is conquered, it is far from tamed. A puppet king is doing little to calm the hatred of the tribes and bring them under Roman rule.
Fighting is in Optio Horatius Figulus' blood. His Celtic ancestry is mocked by his fellow soldiers, but it gives him the toughness essential for survival. His Centurion, though, is a very different kind of soldier - one who seems to care more about paperwork than leading his men into battle.
Sent on a thankless mission deep in hostile territory, in the knowledge that to fail will bring the end of his military career, Figulus finds his courage - and that of his men - tested to the very limit. And, more than anyone, Figulus understands the Celtic mind. He knows that, even utterly crushed in battle, their warriors routed and the Druids driven from their hill forts, the tribesmen of Britannia will sooner die than surrender.

A series of 2 1/2 hr Novelettes
Invades was originally released as a collection of short novelettes. This was a series, released one after the other over time. Now the story is all in one book . Each novelette is 2 1/2 hours long . So it needs to have action and be exciting. This means no plot or story development . I really enjoyed the book read altogether . Each novelette has so much warfare , the best violence , swords through the face. Killing every imaginable way. I loved it. It’s fun , it’s full of action , short on story . I recommend this book, if you like killer violence . ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
