Summary In 460 A.D. Aurelius Antonius finds himself recalled to Rome and is assigned the Commander of new Caesar, Romulus Augustus' retinue of personal bodyguards. Romulus is destined to be crowned the last emperor of Rome. His reign lasts for one day and ends with Rome being run over by the savage Goths. In the resulting invasion, most of Aurelius's men are killed and the young Caesar is captured and imprisoned in the forbidding Isle of Capri. Aurelius, with the very few legionnaires left him, undertakes a rescue mission, with the assistance of a mysterious Byzantine warrior, who turns out to be a beautiful, very lethal woman named Mira. Against impossible odds, Romulus Augustus is rescued. But, with the Roman legions having just sworn allegiance to the Goths, the one remaining hope lies in the forgotten 9th Legion, called the Dragon legion, which had been assigned to remote Britannia. Unfortunately, the 9th Legion, which they had pinned their hopes on, is not what it once was.
