The adventures of Lucius Domitius, soldier of Rome...

Rome: Fury of the Legion


57 B.C., Gaul - Marching with Caesar's legions against the defiant Belgic tribes, legionary Lucius Domitius narrowly survives an attempt on his life. He is shocked to discover that someone in the higher ranks wants him dead.

Unable to trust even his oldest comrades, Lucius must expose his assailant before the murderer tries again. But as Lucius begins to unravel the plot, he learns that he is just a pawn in a much grander scheme - a scheme to betray the proconsul, Gaius Julius Caesar, and the entire Roman army, to the savagery of the enemy. All of their fates converge on the banks of a lazy river in the Belgic lands, where the stalwart legions are attacked by an army of spear-wielding, axe-swinging warriors twice their number in the epic Battle of the Sabis...





Rome: Defiance of the Legion

54 B.C., Gaul – A legion has been annihilated...

With winter’s grip upon the land, Ambiorix of the Eburones leads a revolt of the restive Belgic tribes. Through trickery and betrayal, the barbarian king has already achieved the unthinkable – the destruction of an entire Roman legion. But he finds the next legion he faces much more formidable. Legionary Lucius Domitius, and the stalwart men of the Seventh, veteran warriors who have blooded their swords from the slopes of the Alps to the hills of Britannia, hold out behind the walls of their winter camp, repulsing one bloody attack after another. Deep within hostile lands, and outnumbered more than five-to-one, the legionaries pray to the gods that help will arrive before the murderous barbarian hordes overrun their works...





Rome: Tempest of the Legion

49 - 48 B.C., Adriatic Sea – The Roman Republic is embroiled in civil war. Left behind to convalesce in Rome while Caesar's army is afoot in Greece, Centurion Lucius Domitius desperately seeks any means to return to the field...

Master of Horse Marc Antony coaxes him into accepting a mission that would, by all appearances, allow him to rejoin his legion. But before Lucius's ship reaches Greece, it runs headlong into a devastating winter storm and the ram-tipped war galleys of the blockading Optimates fleet. Lucius finds himself a prisoner aboard the enemy flagship, forced to stroke an oar like a slave. But the sting of the overseer’s whip is the least of Lucius's troubles. He soon discovers his mission had an ulterior purpose, involving a shadowy brotherhood that seeks to become the new ruling power in Rome. Amid battle on land and sea, Lucius must foil the secret plot before the fates of Caesar and the army are sealed...





Rome: Sword of the Legion

48 B.C., Alexandria, Egypt - Victorious after the Battle of Pharsalus and enticed by the promise of riches in the East, Centurion Lucius Domitius is among the legionaries chosen to accompany Julius Caesar to Egypt...

Upon arriving, the Roman troops find themselves embroiled in a sibling rivalry of a royal nature. Lucius becomes unlikely allies with an alluring princess and her followers as they seek out the fabled Eye of Horus. Worn by the pharaohs of old, the ancient talisman promises to secure the throne for the ambitious princess and summon all of Egypt to her banner. But ancient amulets carry ancient curses, and Lucius soon discovers that some things are better left buried in the sand...
