Overseeing a fierce rivalry by three contenders for the throne after the Emperor's death in AD 68, legendary gladiator Quintus Honorius Romanus and his friends are forced to fight with the legionnaires of Rome during a bloody civil war, an effort that is compromised by the rise of former slave Lucius Calidius.

The second book in the series moves the action from the gladiator arena to the battlefield as Quintus and his friends are forced to fight with the legionnaires of Rome in a bloody civil war. Set during the historically significant year of three emperors-one of the most exciting times in Roman history.

Continuing the adventures of Quintus Honorius Romanus (a.k.a. Taurus)—legendary gladiator of ancient Rome—this second book in the series picks up in AD 68, when the emperor is dead, and the throne is up for grabs. Three contenders square off to take control of the government, and as civil unrest begins to build, Quintus and his friends, the beast hunter Lindani and the gladiatrix Amazonia, are forced to fight with the legionnaires of Rome in what will soon become bloody civil war. Meanwhile, in a remote corner of the empire, Quintus’ former slave, Lucius Calidius, plots another rise to power—and not even Quintus will stand in his way.
