Moving on from the arena, we see Romulus and Brennus, joined by Tarquinius, the soothsayer, journey to the East, where they are captured and forced to fight in the Forgotten Legion.
Meanwhile, Fabiola, Romulus’ sister, seems to be fighting her own wars back home in Rome.
This is an enthralling series encompassing historical events, mixed with the right amount of fiction, depicting a soldier’s life in the legion; a gladiators life in the arena and a prostitute’s life in a brothel and beyond.
The journey is both frightening and addictive and a must listen to any and everyone who enjoys good writing, mixed with excitement and romance.
