A.D.30 - A.D.56

Battle, intrigue and Druidism followed to their brutal conclusions in the dark pre-Christian world of the Celts...

Caradoc and Gwydoc, two Celtic princes and rival heirs to the kingdom of the Belgae, a re driven from their lands into Siluria. Caradoc, who becomes the new king, desperately tries to rally the tribes of Britain against the invading Romans. But his real enemy is the slow erosion of the ideals and traditions of his youth.

Gwyndoc, at first loyal to his brother King, feels betrayed, and starts his own campaign to usurp Caradoc and turn the tide of the invaders.

In this starkly realistic and very human novel. Henry Treece explores a period in British history when magic and murder were matter-of-fact and the 'civilising' influence of Rome had yet to make headway against the dark and powerful undertow of the Celtic spirit.
