From the cover: “Caligula has been assassinated and the Praetorian Guard have proclaimed Claudius Emperor — but his position is precarious. His three freedmen, Narcissus, Pallas and Callistus, must find a way to manufacture a quick victory for Claudius — but how? Pallas has the answer: retrieve the Eagle of the Seventeenth, lost in Germania nearly 40 years before.
Vespasian is tasked to lead the dangerous mission into the gloomy forests of Germania. Accompanied by a small band of cavalry; Vespasian and his brother try to pick up the trail of the Eagle. But they are tailed by hunters who kill off men each night and the corpses in their path. Someone is determined to sabotage Vespasian’s mission.
In search of the Eagle and the truth, while being pursued by barbarians, Vespasian must battle his way to the shores of Britannia. Yet can he escape his own Emperors wrath?”
