Publisher's Summary

The Forgotten Legion fought against almighty odds at the very edge of the known world - and lost.

Now Brennus the Gaul, Tarquinius the Etruscan soothsayer and Romulus, bastard son of a Roman nobleman, are prisoners of Parthia. They dream of escape, but in the brutal fighting which lies ahead, only two will survive.

Meanwhile, Fabiola, Romulus's twin sister, is caught up in the vicious eddies of Roman politics. Hunted by slave catchers she flees, hoping to find her lover, Brutus, bound for Alexandria with Caesar.

Ben Kane's brilliant second novel plunges his characters into a cauldron of war and terror, as Caesar and the Roman Republic hurtle towards their day of reckoning.

This is really tedious read

Oh wow what a step back in terms of quality. Each character is constantly asking the gods for help while each protagonist gets into hapless situation after situation. I can’t get through it to finish the trilogy. I feel like Kane needed to bloat the length the same as the last one but didn’t develop the characters or create anything that would really engage the reader. Oh well, I’ll move onto something else.

Something went wrong. Please try again in a few minutes.
