An Emperor for the Legion - The Videssos Cycle Book 2
Description from the back of the book
Foul sorcery had slain the Emperor.
Now, the army of Videssos, betrayed by one man's folly, fled in panic from the savage victors. But there was no panic in the Legion, mysteriously displaced from Gaul and Rome into this strange world of magic.
Wearily, Tribune Marcus Scaurus led his men through the chaos and enemy hordes in search of winter quarters, to regroup and seek to join up with Thorisin Gavras, now rightful ruler of Videssos.
But in Videssos the city, capital of the beleaguered realm, Ortaias Sphrantzes, whose cowardice had caused their defeat, now sat upon the throne. There, behind great walls that had always made the city impregnable to storm or siege, he ruled with the support of evil sorcery.
Grimly, Marcus Scaurus began in the long march through hostile country to achieve the seemingly impossible - to overthrow this merciless dictator.
