The sequel, The Silver Eagle, takes us back into the world of Romulus, Brennus, Tarquinius and Fabiola. The book starts off in Margiana, where The Forgotten Legion is still serving its cruel Parthian masters. A bloody attack by Scythian tribesmen leaves death and destruction in its wake, and poses a grave new danger to Romulus and his friends. Soon The Forgotten Legion will meet its greatest threat yet, one which may mean annihilation…or glory. And while there seems no tangible chance of returning to Rome, a new god – Mithras – offers some hope.
Meanwhile in Italy, Fabiola encounters the vicious slave-catcher Scaevola, a man who makes it his sole purpose to hunt her down. Caught up in the riots and unrest which threaten Rome’s very existence, Fabiola must flee to the only person who can offer her protection: her lover Brutus. But he is far away in Gaul with Caesar, desperately trying to quell the massive tribal uprising led by the charismatic chieftain Vercingetorix.
