From the Publisher
The first in a brilliant new series set during the Second Punic
War, from the bestselling author of The Forgotten Legion
In the First Punic War, the Roman legions defeated and humiliated
Carthage, their only serious rival for power in the Mediterranean.
Now a brilliant young Carthaginian general, called Hannibal, is out
for revenge. Caught up in the maelstrom are two young boys, Hanno,
the son of a distinguished soldier and confidant of Hannibal, and
Quintus, son of a Roman equestrian and landowner. A disastrous
adventure will see Hanno sold into slavery and bought by Quintus''s
father. Although an unexpected friendship springs up between the
two boys -- and with Quintus''s sister, Aurelia -- the fortunes of
the two warring empires once again separates them. They find
themselves on opposite sides of the conflict and an alliance forged
through slavery will be played out to its stunning conclusion in
