The northern war escalates as the level of cruelty reaches new lows. More
Metella’s mentor, Prefect Gaius Lepidi, dies and Metella becomes the prefect (military strategist) for the Second Legion. He has married Lollia and is trying to forget Xara, now Drust’s trusted number two. In the meantime, Rome orders the legion to resume its harvesting of northern slaves. Metella devises a plan, but Drust, with Xara’s help out-foxes him…or do they? The resulting conflict turns the North upside down as the killing and enslavement reach levels that shake even the hardened empire.
