This the second part of the Caledonii series. (It’s best to read part one first, but not essential.)
The year is 74 AD. The Druids’ attempt to unite the clans against the oncoming Roman threat has failed. Dashed to pieces by ancient tribal squabbles.
Calach of the Caledonii, and Finlass of the Meatae, both chief’s sons, have hatched a plot to unite the clans despite what their fathers decide.
Calach is summoned to the Arch-druid, in far distant Votadin lands. He is accompanied by Sewell, his own clan druid. It is essential that Calach keep his plan from the druids, and learn as much as he can on his first journey outside Caledonii lands.
Thus begins Calach’s adventure, as he takes the first steps on a path he cannot retreat from. As their plot grows, the clans come together, and the traitors come out of the bracken.
This is Part Two of a series, to be released in Novella length pieces.
Part Two is over 130 pages, and runs over 35,000 words.
