The last of the Roman army have set sail and left Britain for ever, abandoning it to civil war and the threat of a Saxon invasion.Aquila deserts his regiment to return to his family, but his home and all that he loves are destroyed. Years of hardship and fighting follow until in the end there is only one thing left in Aquila's life, his thirst for revenge ...Rosemary Sutcliff's books about Roman Britain have won much acclaim and the first in the sequence, The Eagle of the Ninth, has now sold over a million copies worldwide. The author writes with such passion and with such attention to detail that the Roman age is instantly brought to life and stayswith the reader long after the last page has been turned.This new film tie-in edition is being published to coincide with the release of The Eagle, a major film adaptation of the first in The Eagle of the Ninth sequence.
Rosemary Sutcliff is one of the most respected children's authors and in 1975 she was awarded the OBE.
