The story of a runaway slave girl and her dangerous journey through the murky underworld of Roman Britain by Carnegie Medal-winning author Tanya Landman.

From Tanya Landman, author of the 2015 Carnegie Medal winner Buffalo Soldier, comes a heart-stopping tale of love, corruption and the power of choice. Blood on her lips. Blood on her tongue. Blood that is not her own. Cassia does not fear to die, but for her - for a slave who has maimed her master - there are worse things than death. Yet the mighty Roman Empire has its limits. Beyond her master's estate, beyond the river, far to the north stands Hadrian's Wall. And beyond the wall? Freedom. With dogs on her trail and a bounty on her head the journey seems impossible. But then Cassia meets Marcus - slick, slippery, silver-tongued - a true and perfect son of Rome. And her only hope.

“the power and beauty of the text is clear, sharp and fierce.” The Literary Review

“the Carnegie-winning Landman has created her best heroine yet in a historical thriller that never releases its ferocious grip.” New Statesman

“The pace never lets up and a sense of danger is ever present. The book draws a harsh picture of Britannia in the late Empire and the subject matter-slavery, foreign occupation and materialism-is very topical. This is an engrossing and enjoyable read for older teenagers." Historical Novel Society
