Prequel to The Albion Chronicles
ONE DECISION IS ENOUGH TO TEAR APART A NATION.
In summer AD51, yet another battle is raging. The invaders are intent on turning the precious Isle of Albion into Roman Britannia. Caradoc, fighting long and hard, is determined to protect the land. Finally with his people defeated, he flees to the queen of the Brigantes, hoping to find salvation.
Queen Cartimandua has other ideas. Blinded by the wealth and power of the Romans, she will not listen to reason. She is determined to keep Caradoc in chains and hand him over to the Roman governor, no matter how much her husband, Venutius, or her archdruid, Galchobhar plead for her to see reason.
