  • Rome meets House of Cards in a gripping
    story of power, love, and betrayal.

7th century A.D.: as the Roman Empire falls into ruin, Constantinople remains
the impregnable and thriving hub of power and ambition. Amidst the
decadence and instability, two rebel soldiers, Nicetas and Heraclius, are on a
mission fraught with mystery to overthrow Phocas the Usurper. But to become
the new emperor they not only need to win a battle, they must also win the
heart of a young woman.


Rife with power struggles, rivalries, and conspiracies set against a historical
background, this is a modern, stunning, and enthralling debut
