An epic Roman novel which follows three men and one woman bound in
servitude to the Republic.
Romulus and Fabiola are twins, born into slavery after their mother
is raped by a drunken nobleman. At thirteen-years-old, they are
sold - Romulus to gladiator school, Fabiola into prostitution where
she will catch the eye of one of the most powerful men in
Tarquinius is an Etruscan warrior and soothsayer, and an enemy of
Rome, but doomed to fight for the Republic in the Forgotten Legion.
Brennus is a Gaul; the Romans killed his entire family. He rises to
become one of the most famous and feared gladiators of his day -
and mentor to the boy slave, Romulus, who dreams night and day of
escape and revenge.
The lives of the four are bound together into a marvellous story
which begins in a Rome riven by corruption, violence and politics,
and ends far away at the very border of the known world.
