The first in a brilliant new series set during the Second Punic War, from the bestselling author of THE FORGOTTEN LEGION Chronicles

"If you want a story that lives and breathes, characters that you genuinely care about and action that leaves you breathless, Ben Kane is your man ... You feel the ground tremble beneath the phalanxes, hear the battle cries of the legions, smell the carnage of war. You sense the sweeping tides of history that changed the world ... An epic tale, triumphantly told" Giles Kristian, author of the RAVEN series "Any book that creates a hole in your life when it ends can only be a very good thing" Bookbag
