The last installment of the Roman Britain trilogy sees Aquila embarking on a journey to keep Britannia's civilization alive. The night the Romans abandon Britannia for good, the Rutupiae lighthouse shines one last time on a deserted city and a sea that remains in the hands of the Saxons. Aquila, son of Britannia but decurion of the Roman cavalry, decides at the last moment to desert the legions, realizing his loyalty lies with his homeland, not with Rome. He returns to his family's home to find his father killed, his sister kidnapped, and himself about to be enslaved by the looters. He is able to free himself and returns to help Ambrosio, the Britons' last hope, in his fight against the traitor Vortigern and his Saxon allies. After years of fighting to keep the flame of Rome alive at the most remote end of the Empire, a new rebirth rises from the ashes. Historical context adds another dimension to this story of intrigue and mystery in a distant world.
