Set in period 337-420 A.D.The purported autobiography of a Brittano-Roman, Marcus Geladius. His life spanned the withdrawal of the legions from Britain. This womanizer and hellraiser was the grandson of a British tribal king on one side and the grandson of the commander of a Roman legion on the other. From recruit to legion commander himself, he fought to protect his family and friends from Irish invader and Roman bureaucrat alike.(Paul Hollander)Described on Richard Stockton College of New Jersey, Fictional Rome, accessed 04/09/2013Second in a trilogy, preceded by The Caesar of the Narrow Seas and followed by Artorius Rex
