Rome - Fury of the Legion - Gaul 57 B.C.

Marching with Caesar's legions against the defiant Belgic tribes, legionary Lucius Domitius is shocked to discover that someone in the higher ranks wants him dead. 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. Their fates converge on the banks of a lazy river deep in the Belgic lands, where Lucius and the stalwart legions face an army of spear-wielding, axe-swinging warriors twice their number in the epic Battle of the Sabis...





Rome - Defiance of the Legion - Gaul 54 B.C.

With winter’s grip upon the land, King Ambiorix of the Eburones leads a revolt of the restive Belgic tribes. Legionary Lucius Domitius, and the stalwart men of the Seventh Legion, hold out behind the walls of their winter camp, repulsing one bloody attack after another. An army led by Julius Caesar is marching rapidly to their relief, but treachery lurks within the besieged fort. Lucius discovers the conniving enemy king is leading Caesar into a trap. In a cold, unforgiving land, the armies of Caesar and Ambiorix converge in a great battle from which only one general can emerge victorious…





Rome - Tempest of the Legion - Adriatic Sea 49-48 B.C.

The Roman Republic is embroiled in civil war. Embarking aboard ship to rejoin Julius Caesar’s army in Greece, Centurion Lucius Domitius runs headlong into a devastating winter storm and the ram-tipped war galleys of the blockading Optimates fleet. A prisoner aboard the enemy flagship, he is forced to stroke an oar and feel the sting of the overseer’s whip. But those are the least of his troubles. He soon finds himself embroiled in a vast conspiracy 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 legions are sealed...





Rome - Sword of the Legion - Egypt 48 B.C.

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…
