The Boudica fights alone to wrest Britain from the legions. Unable to rouse the western tribes to open revolt, she returns east, to where her sister’s death has left a power vacuum amongst the Eceni.
Taking leadership, she must also commit to ‘Tagos, who calls himself Prasutagos and is a supplicant to Rome. She must continue her rebellion in some secrecy, while helping her children grow into their full power, in a land where the warrior rites are forbidden and dreamers languish under threat of crucifixion.
