Legionary (Legionary 1): Orphan, slave... hero of Rome

The Roman Empire is crumbling, and a shadow looms in the east…

376 AD: The Goths amass at the edges of the Eastern Roman Empire, armed and with madness in their eyes. Emperor Valens frantically mobilises his legions to contain this unexpected tide. Little does he know of the far greater, darker threat that drove the tribes like this: the Huns.

The legions need every new recruit they can find, anyone to hold a spear. Pavo – slave and orphan – is not just anyone. Thrust into the border legions, cast into the front line, he must become a man, or he will die, and the empire will fall with him.

Epic Roman fiction, brimming with adventure, battles, blood and gore.
A perfect novel for fans of Bernard Cornwell’s Last Kingdom series, Conn Iggulden’s Emperor series, Simon Scarrow’s Macro and Cato saga or Ben Kane’s Forgotten Legion series.
