An Epic Thriller Of Power, Treachery And Revenge
Sobre o livro
In a darkened cell, a brutally deposed dictator lies crippled - deprived of his power, freedom - and his eyes. On the edge of utter despair, his only companion is the young boy who brings him his meagre rations, a mere child who fears his own shadow. Ten years later, the new ruler's son watches uneasily over his father's empire. Wherever he looks rebellion is festering, and those closest to him have turned traitor once before. This is the beginning of a trilogy of novels plotting the rise of Nero's young protegee, who will become the emperor Trajan. An epic story of power, treachery and revenge.
