Two years after arriving in Britannia, General Aulus Plautius is Romanising willing Celt tribes with the help of Celtic Queen Amena, and crushing those who try to resist. But Aulus looks to have a hidden agenda that makes him an increasing threat to the Celts’ religious leaders the Druids.

The only hope for the Druids and the resisting Celts is Cait, a young girl being trained by outcast Divis to fulfil a prophecy set to save Britannia from the Romans. But when Druid leader Veran’s brother Harka, “the dead man”, wakes, the pair begin an epic battle of wills that divides the Druids and puts the prophecy in jeopardy.
