The Battle of the Lost Eagle saved Hadrian's Wall, but the new Roman governor of Britannia risks losing the province to rebellious northern tribes rampaging south, led by their chieftain Calgus. For Marcus - now simply Centurion Corvus of the 1st Tungrian cohort - the campaign is increasingly dangerous. Reinforcements flood into Britannia; their new officers with no reason to protect him from the emperor's henchmen. Death could result from a careless word as easily as from enemy attack. Worse, one of them is close on his heels. While Marcus trains two centuries of Syrian archers to survive a barbarian charge, the new prefect of the 2nd Tungrians discovers his secret. Only a miracle can save Marcus and the men who protect him from disgrace and death...
