The warrior queen Boudicca is ready to lead the tribes to war.
The Roman grip on Britain is weakening. Emperor Nero has turned his face away from this far-flung outpost. Roman cruelty and exploitation has angered their British subjects. Now the Druids are on the rise, stoking the fires of this anger and spreading the spark of rebellion among the British tribes.
Standing against the rising tide of Boudicca's rebellion is Roman tribune, Gaius Valerius Verrens, Commander of the veteran legionaries of Colonia. One act of violence ignites the smouldering British hatred into the roaring furnace of war.
Colonia will be the first city to feel the flames of Boudicca's revenge, and Valerius must gather his veterans for a desperate defence.
