Roman Republic

From the Back Cover



Rome mocked Carthage's every word and twisted every treaty. The time was ripe for Hannibal to fulfill his promise to the Goddess Tanit and free Carthage from her oppressive conquerors. Trained from birth to lead an army, Hannibal promised to be the greatest general since Alexander of Macedon. It was time to prove his brilliance to the world.
Second Punic War
But Scipio couldn't allow that to happen. The very fabric of Roman society was slowly ripping apart and Scipio swore to mighty Mars Himself that he would stop it-if only his countrymen would give him a chance. While grieving the loss of his best friend, his mentor and even his own father, Scipio studied the devastating defeats meted out by Hannibal and learned how to defeat him.
2nd Punic War
Hannibal was in danger! The blind Druid Seer passed a private prediction to Imilce on her wedding night, "In a place called Cannae. He will die unless you fight at his side." He might have forbidden her to come and he might not even care for her, but she loved him. She wouldn't meekly sit by at home and wait to become a widow. The way of the sword was in her blood and she was a gifted warrior. But what of their infant daughter? The worry over the only two people in the world who had a claim on her heart was tearing Imilce apart.
