Ben Kane is the bestselling author of the Forgotten Legion chronicles. Join him for an evening to celebrate the publication of the first in his new series, set during the Second Punic War.

In the First Punic War, the Roman legions defeated and humiliated Carthage, their only serious rival for power in the Mediterranean. Now a brilliant young Carthaginian general, called Hannibal, is out for revenge. Caught up in the maelstrom are two young boys, Hanno, the son of a distinguished soldier and confidant of Hannibal, and Quintus, son of a Roman equestrian and landowner.

They find themselves on opposite sides of the conflict and an alliance forged through slavery will be played out to its stunning conclusion in battle. Ben Kane’s books never disappoint, so don’t miss this event!
