The Eagles' Brood
Caius Merlyn Brittanicus: Most know the new leader of the Colony as Merlyn; all call him Commander. He is responsible for the Colony's safety, and the people look to him for justice and salvation. It is a harsh life but a good one, and Merlyn is dedicated to spreading the influence of Roman culture beyond the Colony's borders.
Uther Pendragon: the man who will father the legendary Arthur, King of the Britons. He is the cousin Merlyn has known and loved since their births, He is the tireless warrior--the red dragon to Merlyn's great silver bear--and between the two of them, the Colony knows few enemies. In a world torn apart by warfare and upheaval, each is the other's certainty and guarantee of the survival of the Colony . . . until a vicious crime, one that strikes at the roots of Merlyn's own life, drives a wedge between them.
A wedge that threatens the fate of a nation . . . .
