The setting is Britain following the Roman invasion in the time of Boudica. In the centre, a damaged adolescent comes to power. In a far, new Province, the dismantling of Celtic institutions and the opening of the territory to World trade is blocked by a furious native rebellion.

Book Description

The demolition of native states continues to fuel the expansion of the Roman Province of Britain. Compliant British rulers are supported while defiant ones are overthrown. The Order of the Druids, the single most important unifying institution among the Celtic tribes is being systematically destroyed.

But, the introduction of a single currency, a common scale of weights and measures, a single official language, a common legal system and the opening of Britain to the World economy is all at risk.

There are reports of counterfeiting on an industrial scale and, at the moment of the extinction of a Druids, a catastrophic native uprising brings the Province to the brink of collapse.
