This new novel from Kevin Ashman caught my eye on Amazon and I'll be snapping up a copy - looks right up my street!
 
"The year is 43 AD. Four legions have assembled in Gaul prior to the invasion of Britannia and two young recruits, Cassus and Prydain are posted to a training cohort under the sadistic tutorage of battle scarred veteran, Remus.

The legions eventually invade in a frenzy of brutality and, as events unfold, a Celtic warrior of the Deceangli tribe embarks on a frantic rescue mission to Isla Mona, the island of the druids, closely pursued by a cohort of legionaries under the command of Remus.

The Romans find themselves in a strange and inhospitable environment and, as they close in on their quarry, the fates of all four men become entwined and a long held secret is revealed, culminating in a savage and astonishing climax that affects the very future of Britannia. "
