The Centurions is the first in a historical fiction trilogy about the 1st-century Roman Empire. Set primarily in Roman Britain circa AD 72–75, it follows the adventures of a pair of Roman brothers – one free-born and one slave-born – as they serve in the Roman legions.
The Centurions trilogy was written by Amanda Cockrell writing under the pseudonym Damion Hunter. In her own name, Cockrell also has written a separate novel of Roman Britain called The Legions of the Mist (1979).
The other two books in the series are Barbarian Princess and The Emperor's Games. It is unknown why the series never continued past the third book as it was clearly intended to be a much lengthier tale.
