This is a history with a difference, half fantasy half real. You will taste the life of both Gaul and Rome under Julius Caesar, brutality and civilisation, and all from the perspective of the grey wolf.
The wolf wondered if the man was worth worrying about. There was a good chance he was already dead. But he also knew, once having appointed himself Decius's protector, he felt an obligation to continue in that role. Such is my mind, he thought, and how am I different from the cur under the wagon?
