Caesar Augustus has sent Caelius Antonius to the Roman province of Germania in 9 AD to draw a map of wonders that will lead the legions to a promised land as far East as the River Elbe. There are reports of a asea port that would serve as a highway to lands as yet unnamed.
Augustus’s ward,Arminius, a model German turned Roman, has volunteered to lead the legions of Varus there. Caelius awakens one night to find a symbol ofThor’s hammer engraved in the tree bark outside his tent. He sensesa spy from some disaffected tribe watching him. He reports the spy toVarus who defers to Arminius. Arminius says that all the Germans areof course watching, delighted that the Romans have come to civilize their benighted country.
Evidence builds of a conspiracy. Caelius reports it to Augustus back in Rome personally.But Augustus refuses to listen. Arminius was his ward who had livedin his house in Rome, and Caesar had never had a son of his own.Arminius was his blind spot. As a warning to Caelius, Caelius’swife is kidnapped. No matter what Caelius must defend his maps to thedeath. They hold the key to Rome’s future. He hopes that neither henor his wife must die to realize it.
Join Edward’s long ago ancestor, Caelius, in his adventures on the far frontiers of the Roman Empire in Germany. They echo the adventures his latter day descendant, Edward Ware, will someday face in his own map plots against the latter-day Germans.
