A young fifth century king of Britain rallies the northern kingdoms to fight one last great battle to expel the Romans from the land.
The ancient British queen Boudicca casts her imposing shadow over the entire history of this epic struggle.
Before he becomes a man, every prince must kill a dragon. From the stone henges, or Dragonstones, dragons are hunted. Rhun, crown prince of Ebrauc, has slain a dragon. Someday, he will inherit his father's throne. But after a battle with the Romans, that day comes sooner, rather than later.
In the midst of treachery, tragedy, shifting alliances, and with help from the Picts in the far north, a group of northern kingdoms at last dares to challenge Roman rule. Inspired by his ancestor's previous efforts to expel Rome, Coel, (king of one of the northern kingdoms and a real historical figure), finally rallies the north to fight one last great battle that will decide the history of the land.
What if you had to kill your brother because he betrayed your country and allies you had never met?
What if you had to rally the armies of seven small kingdoms for a battle against the world's premiere superpower?
What if the cost of victory was so great that it was almost unbearable?
This is Draegnstoen.
