Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Inscribed in Latin, The Prophecy has resided in the hands of a single family for generations, revealing secrets about the world that is to come, and guiding them to wealth and power... It begins when a Celtic noble betrays his people at the behest of his mother's belief in The Prophecy and sides with the conquering Roman legions. For the next 400 years, Britannia thrives-as does the family that contributed to Rome's reign over the island with the construction of Emperor Hadrian's Wall and the protection of Emperor Constantine from a coup d'A1/2tat, And even when the sun begins to set on the Roman Empire, The Prophecy remains. For those capable of deciphering its signs and portents, the future of Earth is in their hands

Synopsis:

Set during the days when the Romans conquered the Celts, this first volume in a four-book series is an alternate historical epic about The Prophecy. For those capable of decipering its signs and portents, the future of Earth is in their hands.

Synopsis:

A Celtic noble betrays his people and sides with the conquering Roman legions—all because of a prophecy that reveals secrets about the world that is to come, guiding those who hold it to wealth and power.
