Rome has lost its greatest warrior - for Aulus, the doom-laden prophecy of forty years earlier has come to pass.
It is now left to Lucius to defy the oracle's curse alone, and the corrupt and powerful senator leaves nothing to chance in his bid to survive.
But one boy, alone in the world, holds the key to his fate, and the future of the Roman Republic.
