Publisher's Summary

When an act of murder throws the western provinces into turmoil, Aurelius Castus is ordered to take command of the military forces on the Rhine. But he soon discovers that the frontier is a place where the boundaries between civilisation and barbarism have little meaning.
At the very heart of the conflict are two boys. One is Emperor Constantine's young heir, Crispus. The other is Castus' own beloved son, Sabinus. Only Castus stands between them and men who would kill them.

Another great Ian Ross tale.

This is the latest in the series of Rome under Constantine in the northern western areas of the Empire. The story is good, and the narration is absolutely superb: a masterful performance. I look forward the next in the series, maybe later in 2017 or early 2018. Well done!
