It’s 37 AD. In this story of secrecy and betrayal, Caligula Caesar has just become Rome’s new master. Senator Titus Carinna, who helped him succeed to the throne, knows the inexperienced young ruler needs a companion he can trust. It’s a shame the Senator’s older son — Caligula’s closest friend — committed suicide after being charged with treason. But that still leaves Marcus, his second son.
Headstrong and hot-tempered, Marcus would rather prove his courage by leading legions against Rome’s enemies. Yet when his father calls him home from the frontier, he has no choice but to befriend Caligula — the man he blames for not saving his brother.
Caught in a web of treachery and deceit reaching from Palatine mansions to the city’s grimy, teeming streets, he will uncover a dark secret that threatens his family, the fearless barbarian girl he desires, even his life… and may bring chaos to the young Roman Empire.
