Description

In the early second-century A.D., Marcus, the Roman Cohort Commander of the Second Legion, along with his best friend and former slave, Esca, begins a quest deep into the northern highlands of Britain and Scotland.

Determined to recover the lost eagle standard of his father's lost Ninth Legion and redeem his family's honor, Marcus also seeks to discover his father's fate and that of the men who mysteriously disappeared under his command. Desperate battles are followed by heart-stopping pursuit as they flee with the recovered eagle standard.  Travel with Marcus as he demonstrates the true meaning of freedom, friendship, and honor.
