Summary

The Roman Empire is on the brink of civil war. Only Maxentius, tyrant of Rome, stands between the emperor Constantine and supreme power in the west. Aurelius Castus, promoted from the ranks for valour, is now a tribune in Constantine's army. But as Constantine becomes increasingly devoted to Christianity, Castus is forced to ask himself whether he is backing the wrong man....
The coming war will decide the fate of empire, but also expose shadowy realms of treachery at the heart of Rome itself.

Critic reviews

"Ian imbues any situation with some wonderful twists, reinforcing that nothing in life (and therefore within these pages) is as simple as it seems...a writing masterclass in adding research and factoids that help rather than hinder the pace." ( The Bookbag)
"A thumping good read." (Ben Kane)

ordinary men and emperors

how many thousands died over one man's ambition or for two wanting the same. this is an excellent story of the soldiers fighting on both sides for control of Rome, narrated with great emotion delivering an experience of being in the age. a marvellous series also showing the rise of Christianity.
