The final, devastating instalment in Ross Leckie’s extraordinary trilogy.

After 300 years of acrimony and two bitter wars, the great Mediterranean powers of Rome and Carthage are readying their blades once more.

Like their fathers before them, Hanno Barca and Scipio Minor, the sons of the legendary generals Hannibal and Scipio Africanus, must face off to decide the future of an empire.

When the ashes settle, once this final, fateful clash has ended... a nation will be no more.

An epic, masterful tale of power, love, pain and loss, perfect for fans of Robert Fabbri, Simon Scarrow, and I, Claudius.
