From the cover:
AD 367 and Roman Britain is falling to the barbarians. Towns burn, the land is ravaged and the few survivors flee. The army of Rome – once the most effective fighting force in the world – has been broken, its spirit lost.
Yet for all the darkness, there is hope. It rests upon the shoulders of one man: Lucanus – the one they call the Wolf. He is a warrior. He wears the ancient crown of a great war leader, Pendragon, and he wields a sword bestowed upon him by the druids. And he, together with a band of trusted followers, is heading south, to Londinium, where he means to bring together an army and make a stand against the hated invader.
But within the walls of that city, hidden enemies lie in wait. They crave the secret that has been entrusted to him. To own it would give them power beyond imagining. To protect it will require bravery and sacrifice beyond measure. T lose it would mean the end of everything worth fighting for…

Dear Lord. This was bad. Worse than the first? Yes. Because it was number two and he had had a chance to correct the mistakes of the first.

I suppose I’ll have to get number three and hope he leaves it as a trilogy.
