Another book about Roman Britain from Rosemary Suttcliff, featuring the descendants of the main character of The Eagle of the Ninth.

"Rome is falling... If I can make this one province strong enough to stand alone when Rome goes down, then something may be saved from the darkness."

But Carausias, Emperor of Roman Britain, is threatened from all around. And he can trust nobody, not even his apparent friends.

The Saxons are attacking more and more frequently and it is as much as the defenders can do to repel them.

Into this world a two young Romans have to live... but, when the world they have known all their lives is crumbling around them, what can they do?
