This book continues the story of Caratacus and the Britons, as they fight to defend their home from the Roman army. As with the first book, it is well researched with detailed descriptions, which really help you to imagine the atmosphere on both sides of the battle.
I really enjoyed reading this book and would recommend to anyone who has an interest in Romano-British history.

A very gripping story, based on the invasion of Britannia by the Romans. Although a little slow to start as the historical background is provided, the book quickly develops, with some fast-paced battle scenes. The characters are well introduced, and you quickly get a sense of their beliefs and role within the invasive and defensive armies. The battle scenes are graphically described, and you are left with a real sense of what it would have been like to have been involved.

Overall, a very entertaining read which kept me gripped throughout.
