First in a nine part series

The Wise Oak series begins in the sleepy provincial island of Pretan, in the unimportant village of Ba-Dun. Three boys Blyth, Teague and Abbon are forced to flee for their lives; first to their mysterious great grandfather who teaches them magical powers, and then across the sea to Gaul where they continue their learning. Is it enough to prepare them to face the Romans in their capital city?
