43 AD: The Roman legions are coming.

In Southern Britain, Caratacus, chief of the Britons, watches from a hilltop as the scarlet cloaks of a Roman army spread across his land like blood.

Among them is Rufus, keeper of the Emperor’s elephant, an unwilling participant in the invasion of Britain. The Roman legions smash into the British forces, but just as victory seems at hand, they wait. Reinforcements are coming, led by Emperor Claudius himself. And Rufus will have a very special part to play in the coming battle.

About the Author:

Douglas Jackson is the author of Caligula: The Tyranny of Rome. He is an editor at the Scotsman.

Review:

"What stands out are Jackson's superb battle scenes. I lost myself in the riveting depictions of combat, hoping against hope that somehow the British would prevail... I was gripped from start to finish" -- Ben Kane, author of The Forgotten Legion "Jackson triumphs... If I were Conn Iggulden or Simon Scarrow, I'd be rather worried by the new Scottish kid on the block" * The Scotsman * "A master of his discipline rightly hailed as one of the best historical novelists writing today" * Daily Express *
