Cornelius Scipio and Jace Kasia were passionate about their missions but, on a collision course. Unfortunately, one would have to lose for the other to accomplish his goal.
In his mere twenty years on this earth, Cornelius Scipio had experienced more combat and defeat than veterans twice his age. Personally, he wasn’t done with war because of a pledge. But one thing held him back from the command of a Legion – the law. It prevented anyone under the age of twenty-five years from signing agreements before they were mature enough to know the consequences.
Cornelius wasn’t blind to the consequences of his desire. However, as long as Hannibal Barca lived, Tribune Scipio would use every ploy at his disposal to bypass the law and climb the political rungs to gain command of a Legion.
While Rome battled Carthage for dominance of the Republic, War Chief Jace Kasia and his band of warriors defended the territory of the Hirpini tribe. In the fields of the valleys among the Apennines, Jace challenged anyone who trespassed.
If they crossed the border with evil in mind, be they Roman Legionnaires or Carthaginian mercenaries, Jace and the people of the wolf swore to kill them.
Cornelius Scipio and Jace Kasia were passionate about their missions but on a collision course. Unfortunately, one would have to lose for the other to accomplish his goal. They were both warriors, and in their hearts, carried a heritage of threat.
