For Julius Caesar, the time has come to enter the political battleground that has become Rome. Having proved his valor in the slaves' revolt, Caesar is strengthened by the love of a beautiful older woman--and by the sword of his loyal friend Marcus Brutus. But it is Caesar's next move that will change history. With an army made in his own image, Caesar begins a daring charge through Gaul, across the English Channel, and to the wilds of tribal Britain. Here, in a series of cataclysmic clashes, the legend of Julius Caesar will be forged. And while Caesar and Brutus battle the armies of the wilderness, their political adversaries in Rome grow ever more powerful. For when the fighting is over, the greatest danger to Julius Caesar will await him on the Tiber--with a man who wants Rome himself.
