Atticus Perennis and Septimus Capito have little in common: Atticus, captain of the trireme Aquila, comes from a Greek fishing family; Septimus, a Roman and a marine centurion, has spent most of his military career on land. Nevertheless, the two reluctant comrades-in-arms must work together when confronted by a vast enemy fleet that threatens the very existence of the Roman Republic and its fledgling navy. Set in 200 BCE, this 1st book in the Masters of the Sea series is followed by Captain of Rome and Master of Rome. Historical Fiction January 2015 newsletter.

Set during the First Punic War and with several sea battles between the Carthaginians and Romans it was a definite must read for me.

I thought the story was not quite as developed as it could have been but all in all it told a good tale and kept my interest. I will definitely be reading the rest of the trilogy.
