Summary
"A historical novel of one of the most storied uprisings of classic times by an emerging master of the genre. From the author of Pride of Carthage, the superb fictional rendering of Hannibal's epic military campaigns against Carthage's archenemy Rome, comes the perfect follow-up: an equally superb novel of the legendary gladiator Spartacus and the vast slave revolt he led that came ever so close to bringing Rome and its supposedly invincible legions to its knees. No one brings more verve, intelligence, and freshness to the perennially commercial sword-and-sandals genre than David Anthony Durham. "David Anthony Durham has serious chops. I can't wait to read whatever he writes next."--George R.R. Martin"--

Summary
In 73 BCE, Thracian gladiator Spartacus conspires with his fellow slaves to stage a revolt against their Roman masters, a plan that gains momentum with the addition of a priestess with a gift for prophecy. Though their numbers are small, their impact is substantial, striking fear into the hearts of Rome's leadership, which channels all its military might into stopping the rebels. -- Description by Gillian Speace
