From the time Cethen Lamh Fadha and his sharp witted wife Elena see a Roman ship slam into their village dock, To the clash of arms that takes place almost two years later as a result, their life is an uprooted trail of turmoil. Led by a Brigante king who, at times, seems to be an affliction that rivals that of the Romans, The couple find their paths reluctantly crossing that of Gaius Sabinuis Trebonius, senior tribune of the Ninth Hispana Legion.Gaius himself is no more pleased than Cethen and his wife by their chance encounters. With a sometimes erratic Governor overseeing command of the Ninth, and his own wife doing more harm to his career than good, he finds himself snared in his own tangled web of troubles and intrigue, Gaius's fate is, nonetheless, firmly tied to that of the Brigante chieftain and his wife, often at great cost to both body and soul.With historic characters in the background such as the cynical Vellocatus, former shield bearer to Venutius And The man who married the aging king's divorced wife; and Cartimandua, a pragmatic but very human queen, The story moves quickly.
