Summary
Historical fiction. Romulus and Fabiola are twins, born into slavery after their mother is raped by a drunken nobleman. At 13 years old, they and their mother are sold: Romulus to gladiator school, Fabiola into prostitution, where she will catch the eye of a most powerful man in Rome, and their mother to the salt mines. Tarquinius is an Etruscan, a warrior and soothsayer, 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 of revenge.The lives of these four characters are bound and interwoven in a marvelous story which begins in a Rome riven by corruption, violence and political enmities, but ends far away, at the very edge of the known world, where Romulus, Brennus and Tarquinius find themselves fighting against the Parthians and overwhelming odds
