The Roman Empire of this tenth century stretches from Russia in the East to a new continent in the West. But a new continent brings new threats to their rule. The Roman garrison in Seneca, located in modern-day New York, lacks the supplies and men needed to defeat an alliance of native Mahicans and immigrant Vikings. Dinah, a former slave trained in espionage, had hoped Seneca would be the start of a new life. Instead, she'd pulled back into war. If Seneca is to survive, Dinah must reconcile her allegiance to Rome with her chance to create her own destiny in the New World with Gerhard, the Viking Chief.

I was disappointed with this book. After reading several reviews, I expected more... I expected a better writing style; I expected an historical novel with better historical research; I expected a story that wasn't so predictable. A story that occurs in North America in 950 AD with Vikings, Romans and Lenape Indians would not have telescopes, gunpowder and concrete tunnels. I think the author could have done better.
