"A gripping blend of history, battles, gore, ancient politics, betrayals, consummate and casual cruelty, and sex....a pleasure for those who like history and great adventure." --Library Journal on The Forgotten Legion

Trapped in Parthia by Crassus's failed invasion, ten thousand legionaries are captured and marched to the edge of the known world--these men are the Forgotten Legion. Among them are Romulus, Brennus and Tarquinius, all men with troubled pasts and good reason to hate Rome. Together the trio must face the savage tribes that surround them as well as the more treacherous enemies within the ranks of the legion itself. The three friends' character will be tested to the utter limit as they struggle to find a way back to Rome. Meanwhile, Fabiola, Romulus' twin sister, fights to survive and maintain hope in her brother's survival. Freed by her powerful lover but beset by enemies on all sides, she must travel to Gaul to find her lover, Caesar's right-hand man, where Vercingetorix threatens the life and the lives of all who rally around Caesar.
