Adelbehrt and his sister, Avelina, are taken by the Romans from their home in the Rhinelands when they are very young children. When they are sold as slaves and taken to distant Britannia, Adelbehrt vows that one day he will escape and take revenge on the Romans. But escape is not so easy. Nor is taking on the might of Rome. How can Adelbehrt achieve his desire to exact revenge on the Roman army? And will he be destroyed by his hatred?
The next book in this series, which follows Adelbehrt’s descendants through the ages, will be available later next year. It takes the family into the Viking Era of Britain.
