43 AD. Britain braces itself for invasion by a brutal and ruthless enemy. All that stands in the way of the Emperor Claudius and his legions is a young warrior, Caractacus, and his brother. Both men have prepared their whole lives for this moment. But as the blow falls, their father the High King suddenly dies and they are alone. Worse, Caractacus now threatens the network of alliances that hold the British nations together by falling in love with Sarah, a Hebrew princess judged to be ill-suited for the kingdom. How will the Briton navigate his way through the diplomatic minefield so that he can fight the invader – while his brother is dangerously under the influence of the Roman officer, Julius Osteria Scapula, who murdered their sister? Then he begins to suspect there is another reason altogether why the Romans are there. It’s because the Christians have arrived in the West and desire to make Britain a base for their operations. This is Caractacus as we have never encountered him before – the brilliant leader of British resistance to Roman rule, and the sophisticated chief of a proud race – put terrifyingly to the test. Nor Shall My Sword Sleep is the first book in a series
