AD 61. Rome. Boudica's rebellion against Roman rule has failed. At a celebratory banquet, an ambitious historian, Caius Placonius Felicitus, takes an interest in a mysterious guest: Caratacus. Once a high king of Britannia, now living in exile, Caratacus gradually opens up to Felicitus. And the young Roman soon realises that Caratacus's is the story he has been waiting all his life to tell.
AD 18. Britannia. Caratacus's tale begins as he - quick-witted youngest son of the tribal king Cunobelinus - humiliates his own brother in a war of wits. Cunobelinus decrees that the teenage prince continue his studies under the Druids at a sinister sanctuary, nestled in a remote valley in the lands of the Silures . . . But Caratacus will need all his new skills, as well as his natural cunning, to survive . . .
The brand new series from the Sunday Times bestselling authors of Invader and Pirata: Warrior, the story of Britannia's barbarian warlord Caratacus.
