Description

PICTISH CALEDONIA, 164 CE.

The Roman army of occupation of the last 40 years is in decline and retreat. Quarrelling local tribes compete for control and rebellion is in the air.

The weakened Romans are buying peace and time with bribes of silver – ‘The Tribute’ – but even this is failing to retain control and pacify the country.

Against this background, the fortunes of two young people become entwined when their worlds collide: Aileen, a Pictish princess and Gaius, a young, Roman officer.

Their lives are thrown into turmoil as they are caught between loyalties to family and country. The theft of the latest payment of silver to the Picts from the Romans is the trigger for the action that engulfs everyone.

For Gaius and Aileen, it is a battle to survive.

  1. Graham Fraser

    What an amazing and captivating read. I couldn’t put it down

  2. Anne on Reading

    Well-written and engaging story set in a fascinating era of Scots history. The setting and content is really well -researched, so the novel flies along naturally, and the characters are lively and realistic – Gaius is a great hero. (It’s also a really well-produced book!) Highly recommended for adults and YA readers.
