The Mark of the Horse Lord
A stirring tale of vengeance and honour, from the finest historical novelist to write about Roman Britain.
Take my place, Phaedrus, and with it, take my vengeance …
In the cut-throat arena of second-century Corstopitum, Phaedrus, ex-slave and gladiator, wins his freedom in bloody combat. But he soon finds himself caught up in a battle even more fierce and vital. Assuming the identity of Midir, lost king of the Dalriad tribe of Northern Britain, he must unite and lead the Horse People in rebellion against Liadhan, the traitorous queen who has usurped the throne. For Phaedrus the adventure is one of self-discovery; tattooed with the Mark of the Horse Lord he comes to learn the true nature of leadership and heroism, loyalty and sacrifice.
