The first instalment in Anthony Riches' bestselling Empire series.

'A master of the genre' The Times

Thrilling, authentic and action-packed, this novel introduces soldier hero Marcus Valerius: a centurion stationed on Hadrian's Wall in the second century during a revolt against the Roman Empire.

Marcus Valerius Aquila has scarcely landed in Britannia when he has to run for his life - condemned to dishonorable death by power-crazed emperor Commodus. The plan is to take a new name, serve in an obscure regiment on Hadrian's Wall and lie low until he can hope for justice. Then a rebel army sweeps down from the wastes north of the Wall, and Marcus has to prove he's hard enough to lead a century in the front line of a brutal, violent war.

A very engaging story that keeps you on the edge as you wonder what evil lies in wait for the MC as he runs from a false accusation. Seeing him grow as a soldier leaves a great impression of military life at a glance. Can repeat itself at times yet keeps an even enough pace that it is hard to lose the main plot.
