The third novel in The Forgotten Legion trilogy takes the main
protagonists from North Africa back to Rome in the build-up to the
assassination of Julius Caesar.
Having survived the perils of a journey across half the world,
Romulus and Tarquinius are press-ganged into the legions, which are
under imminent threat of annihilation by the Egyptians. Meanwhile
in Rome, Romulus'' twin sister Fabiola lives in fear for her life,
loved by Brutus, but wooed by Marcus Antonius, his deadly enemy.
Back in Egypt, Romulus fights at Zela, the vicious battle where
Caesar famously said, ''Veni, vidi, vici''. Tarquinius, separated
from Romulus in the chaos of war, hides in Alexandria, searching
for guidance. But mortal danger awaits them both. From the
battlefields of North Africa and Spain, to the lawless streets of
Rome and the gladiator arena, they face death daily, until on the
Ides of March, the twins are reunited and must decide either to
back or to betray Caesar on his day of destiny.
