Tall, sturdy Victoria is learning to be a warrior among her mother's tribe, the Iceni, when she's caught up in Boudicca's rebellion. But she has a Roman family as well - can she save them? Should she try? Who should she fight for? Half crippled, struggling to survive against murderous clansmen, she feels she's a traitor to both sides. Then Boudicca herself, as she dies, lays on her a sacred task. To succeed, she must do the one thing she's good at; fighting.
