A story of ancient times, revenge and love. The story of how the people

was born. I read it in a go. I simply couldn't put it down.
Ilias is a strong leader who stands up for

story, told from Ilias POV lets us get closer to his thoughts and doubts and

Roman soldiers. Will he manage to keep his word towards his followers and
destroy the conquerors or will he be an easy prey for another enemy, close at
