The Empire of Steel

Book Four

The Eagle's talons


First Italian edition published in February 2019.

The third novel closes the Trilogy and with it the first cycle.

The true Saga begins with this book.


In the two-year period encompassed in this novel, we will see the intertwining of a number of different stories: in some cases, army officers and legionaries fighting epic battles will be the protagonists: Rome has decided to expand, and will do so in a massive scale.


In other cases, new and powerful vessels will surf the oceans, bringing the Eagle of Rome in distant lands; in others, totally unexpected and unusual characters for an Ancient Rome-based plot will appear.


Our well-known protagonists preserve their prominent role as the story unfolds in the city of Rome. However, many behind-the-scenes events will be revealed that were only to be inferred in the first three books.



The title

Here Rome will start a new phase of expansion, so its Eagle will use its talons. Talons of steel.
