Aulus is dead. Hailed as a hero of the republic, his sons, Quintus and Titus, have new and heavy responsibilities placed upon them. Lucius, now the most powerful - and sinister - senator in Rome, is keen to manipulate the Cornelii family to achieve his own goals.
Meanwhile, the young Aquila lives in Spain with dreams of becoming a powerful solider to fight for Rome, and discover his destiny, hidden within his Eagled amulet.

While the narration is acceptable, the author plays fast and loose with history. Many anachronisms exist in the story. It is unfortunate, as it would have set up well as a comparison to the Populares vs Beni politics of Caesar???s time. The series doesn???t break well in the books. None of the characters are particularly well rounded, nor can one sympathize much with any of them.
A true historical type fiction such as found in Sayer's books or in Colleen McCullough's books would have been very interesting. Instead, one is presented with a story that is mildly interesting but lacks any real historical footing.

Disappointing end to a great series
