    Summary

    Given the choice, Esca chose freedom.

    He chose north of the wall and Marcus smiled a dim smile and nodded when he received the answer. The decision was one he had been building up and up in his mind ever since they had returned to Roman occupied soil, shield up and ready for the heavy blow, but it hurt nonetheless.

    Summary

    A superhero walks into a bath house…

    Skirmishes, mysteries, and spa rituals in the grim metropolis known as Calleva City. In modern retro-futuristic Rome, Marcus and Esca are two comic book-style superheroes with secret identities and double lives. (Depending on the point of view, one of them is possibly a supervillain.)

    Summary

    After the return of the Eagle, Rome is not done with Marcus Aquila. He and Esca are persuaded to infiltrate a group of potential conspirators -- possibly-traitorous men about whom there are yet other shameful rumors, stories of debauchery and vice. What do they get up to at their dinner-parties? To find out the truth, Marcus and Esca must pretend to be lovers, but it is a difficult thing to pretend to be what Marcus so badly wishes they could be in truth. (Or: Marcus and Esca go undercover as gay at an orgy.)

    The rivalry between the Theta Sigma Rhos and the Delta Omicrons began so long ago, no one really knew the exact date. But the truth now was that the Thetas were jocks and the Deltas were nerds, and everything else was just history.

    Summary

    The son of the man who lost the Eagle of the Ninth would never be allowed a first command of his very own fort, would he?

    Marcus is posted not to Isca Dumnoniorum, but to a wretched and run-down garrison north of the Wall. There he finds that he is the new centurion of a group of scouts and spies, all of them British. He has few supplies and no experience. His men distrust him. His superiors despise him. His second-in-command is an incompetent drunkard. And the local tribes are determined to kill all of them.

    But the worst thing of all is one of Marcus' soldiers. He is an enigmatic, dangerous, and insubordinate man by the name of Esca, who makes Marcus yearn for terrifying things he has never before wanted and can never, ever let himself have...

    Summary

    Flavia Aquila, daughter of the primus pilum of the ill-fated Ninth Legion, was herself a centurion — until she was wounded at Isca Dumnonorium and her secret discovered. Nearly two years later, she rides into the wild North of Britannia to learn what happened to her father, his Legion, and its Eagle standard. Alongside her rides Esca, the fierce, loyal, and strangely beautiful slave whose life she saved at the Games at Calleva and whom her uncle bought for her. Beyond the Wall, their relationship will change profoundly — and Flavia will learn what became of her father and his men.

    Summary

    But it was Esca’s hand, gripped tight in his hair and Esca’s blade on his throat that woke Marcus from the numbed nightmare he’d been stumbling through. He could feel the man’s thigh pressed hard against his back, the slight tremor in the hand that held him stretched impossibly tight, the blade cold and kissing up against his throat, and suddenly Marcus felt blessedly clear-headed
