Douglas Jackson


Gaius Valerius Verrens returns to Rome from the winning crusade opposed to Boudicca in Britain. Now hailed a 'Hero of Rome', Valerius isn't the guy he as soon as used to be - scarred either bodily and emotionally via the battles he has fought, his sister is mortally sick, his father in self-imposed exile. And nor is Rome an identical urban because the one he left.

The Emperor Nero grows more and more paranoid. those that search energy for themselves whisper darkly within the emperor's ears. They communicate of a brand new chance, one came across in the partitions of Rome itself. a brand new spiritual sect, the fans of Christus, deny Nero's divinity and are rumoured to be spreading sedition.

Nero calls on his 'Hero of Rome' to turn into a 'Defender of Rome', to find this insurgent sect, to seize their chief, a guy referred to as Petrus. Failure will be to forfeit his lifestyles, and the lives of twenty millions Judaeans dwelling in Rome. yet as Valerius starts off his seek, a quest so as to take him to the sting of the empire, he'll observe that luck might cost him approximately up to failure.
