The year is 252 AD and the Roman Empire is falling down a precipice.
It will take a man with iron in his veins to set things right and accomplish the impossible.
From a humble upbringing, a boy emerges who is destined to change history.
This is the story of Lucius Domitius Aurelianus.

Part VII: Illyrian
Lucius assists Aemilianus to drive Cannabaudes and his marauding bands of Goths from the lands of Rome. But the Roman general has his own hidden agenda – plans that Lucius wants no part of.
Far to the west, in the forests of Germania, ancient enemies rise again, and new ones, more powerful than ever, emerge. He rushes west to honour old oaths, and soon the friends find themselves north of the Rhine, aided by unlikely allies.
A struggle for ultimate power unfolds, and only with the help of Arash do they navigate the turbulent waters.
In the East, the shahanshah had been biding his time. He strikes deep into Syria while Rome is distracted by internal strife. By cunning, the great Persian king wins the support of Armenia.
In desperation, Lucius and his friends travel East in an attempt to keep the greatest prize of all from the clutches of Shapur.
But the god of war does not give without wanting in return.
