Summary

New Dawn is set in post-Roman Britannia in spring AD 455, several months after the events described in the novel Britannia: World’s End.

After wintering at Villa Magna to recover from his bitter struggle against the British High King Vortigern, ex-Imperial Officer Dux Ambrosius Aurelianus leads his motley company westwards. He hopes to find a safe refuge in the south-west near Durnovaria, where he believes his dead mother’s kinfolk might be found. 

Arriving in the area, Ambrosius finds a small abandoned settlement where his company can take shelter for the night before moving on to the town of Vindocladia—just north of Durnovaria. But Vortigern has put the word out: a high blood price will be paid to anyone who captures Ambrosius, and there are many who would take up the challenge….

Light and entertaining

A light easy listen. perfect for a Sunday afternoon. First one I've listened to from Mr Birks and was pleasantly surprised.
Narration is good and clear.
I will be on the lookout for more in this series.
