Provinz Raetia, around A.D. 60
Titus, Haganicus and Lucius, three roman boys, escape the attack on the supply convoy they were traveling with. The three are sons of senior Roman officers. The boys narrowly escape being taken as hostages by hostile natives. They flee through the woods, trying to reach the nearest outpost of the Roman army. They don’t know that a cohort of the Legio XXI Rapax is already on the way to rescue them. Romans, their allies and enemy tribes alike race to find the three boys.
Nine days after they left Aventicum, the boys witness how insurgent troops ambush the cohort of the XXI Rapax in a river valley. Heavily outnumbered the cohort faces anhilation.
The race is on!
Will the boys reach the garrison in time, to send rescue to the doomed cohort?
