When murderous Roman agents nearly captured Marcus, his friends had defeated them. Now he must protect them from the emperor's wrath and leave the shelter of the province. As Marcus Tribulus Corvus, centurion of the second Tungrian auxiliary cohort, he leads his men from Hadrian's Wall to the Tungrians' original home in Germania Inferior. Tungrorum is a city ravaged by the eastern plague sweeping through the empire - now threatened by an outbreak of brutally violent robbery. Obduro, a bandit chieftain, is robbing and killing with impunity. His sword, the lethal symbol of his unstoppable power, is sharper, stronger and far more deadly than any known to the Roman army. And now he threatens to destabilize the whole northern frontier of the empire...
