Vengeance of the Last Roman Legion: Book 1
Deep in the blackness of a long-forgotten crypt in rural France, an ancient and deadly nightmare has awakened. Its prey is already long dead.
But it will not be denied the revenge for which it has waited two thousand years.
In AD 9, during the reign of the Roman emperor Augustus, three legions were trapped and cruelly massacred in the Teutoberg Forest by an army of brutal and deadly German tribes led by a traitor named Arminius. Of the twenty thousand legionaries, civilian men, women, and children, only a few hundred survived.
Centurion Lucius Cassius Aquilius, the senior surviving officer returned to Rome filled with a lust for vengeance.
With the help of an aged alchemist, Lucius leads an elite Roman legion of nearly five thousand men into a cold and sealed crypt, waiting for the day they would emerge to find and kill their enemies.
But they have overslept. The year is 2021, more than two thousand years since the Teutoberg Massacre. The world has changed into something that Legatus Lucius Cassius Aquilius and his loyal legionaries cannot comprehend. But their cause has not died.
They will still march into Germania to seek their long-awaited vengeance.
Meanwhile in Brussels, a NATO legal investigator named Alex Braden begins to uncover a series of strange and fatal events in France and Belgium. At first, he is at a loss to explain them as they lead to an inescapable solution. But it is a solution that is totally impossible.
A living Roman legion has arisen from the past, marching into modern-day Germany. The greatest and most dangerous army history has ever known is out for revenge.
And no one knows they are coming.
