Publisher's Summary

The Roman Empire is crumbling, and a shadow looms in the east....
376 AD: The Eastern Roman Empire is alone against the tide of barbarians swelling on her borders. Emperor Valens juggles the paltry border defenses to stave off invasion from the Goths north of the Danube. Meanwhile, in Constantinople, a pact between faith and politics spawns a lethal plot that will bring the dark and massive hordes from the east crashing down on these struggling borders. The fates conspire to see Numerius Vitellius Pavo, enslaved as a boy after the death of his legionary father, thrust into the limitanei, the border legions, just before they are sent to recapture the long-lost eastern Kingdom of Bosporus. He is cast into the jaws of this plot, so twisted that the survival of the entire Roman world hangs in the balance....

Sounds like a good story but the narration is bad

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I don't really like the style of the narrator. He made every sentence sounds as if it is a surprise and that really gives me a headache.

Great book of the past that was

I loved this book and couldn't stop listening. The whole story and narration put me in the scene and I only wish it was longer.
