After the bloodiest battle Britain has ever experienced, the tribes continue to revolt against the oppression of the Roman invaders. From the decadent luxury of Nero's Rome to the deprivation of Boudicca's prison cave, the story moves between disparate worlds. Boudicca survives her incarceration but the new governor, Trebellius, sends her to train as a gladiatrix. She meets Cador, another captive gladiator and falls in love with him. Trebllius, spurned by Boudicca, vows his revenge on her and Cador at the spectacular opening games of his new London amphitheatre.
