Order has been slowly deteriorating in the northern part of the Empire, beyond Hadrian’s Wall, and protection in the face of the Celtic and Pictish tribes is provided by a small, advanced but half-wild legionary unit known as the Frontier Wolves.

Alexios Flavius Aquila is put in charge of this unit, knowing this is not a promotion but the end of his career. A poor decision cost him the life of half of his men, and if it weren’t for his uncle’s influence as the governor of Northern Britannia, he wouldn’t continue being a centurion or a legionary. Failure and privilege are not the best calling card for a hardened troop of veterans, so his survival depends on whether he can earn his men’s respect and become a Frontier Wolf himself.

Peace at the frontier is breached by an attack by Celts, Picts, and Irish, so Alexios once again has to face the choice between fighting and retreating in order to save his Wolves from the enemy’s superiority and regain the respect of his superiors.Un hombre tiene que enfrentarse a su pasado y a los enemigos de su madre patria en esta emocionante novela histórica ambientada en Britania en el año 343 AD. El orden se ha ido deteriorando poco a poco en el extremo norte del Imperio, más allá del Muro de Adriano, y la protección frente a las tribus celtas y pictas proviene de una pequeña unidad avanzada de legionarios medio salvajes conocidos como los Lobos de la Frontera.

Alexios Flavio Aquila recibe el mando de esta unidad, pero sabe que no se trata de una promoción sino del final de su carrera. Una decisión errónea costó la vida a la mitad de sus hombres, y si no hubiera sido por la influencia de su tío, gobernador del norte de Britania, ya no sería centurión ni legionario. El fracaso y el privilegio no son una buena carta de presentación ante una tropa veterana y endurecida, de manera que su supervivencia depende de ganarse su respeto y convertirse él también en un Lobo de la Frontera. La paz de la frontera es rota por un ataque de celtas, pictos e irlandeses, de manera que Alexios tiene que enfrentarse de nuevo a la decisión de resistir o retirarse para salvar a sus Lobos de la superioridad del enemigo y volver a ganar el respeto de sus superiores.
