Master of Gaul is the second in a series of five novels that bring alive a new and very different interpretation of Julius Caesar's Commentaries on his Gallic Wars. The story is told through the eyes of Marcus Rutilius Robura, originally a Military Tribune in the Tenth Legion, commanding a cavalry troop made up from the sons of Rome's nobility. These are the 'Rutilius journals', written by Marcus's 21st century alter ego, Mike Oakwood, (read Caesar's Tribune for the full story of this strange transition) in order to keep in touch with his real persona. This section of his journals covers the period 57-56 BC, when Caesar became virtually the Master of Gaul. Follow Marcus/Mike's progress in Caesar's footsteps as he fights his way across Gaul. Live through his emotional struggles to satisfy the curiosity of his (Marcus's) twin sister; see how his relationship with the beautiful Sylvia - the young Greek girl who understands his link to the future - develops; watch as his close relationship with Quintus, now his brother-in-law, reaches a crisis point; look out for that glimpse of what lies in Caesar's future across the seas of northern Gaul.
