Overview

When Clovis moves to conquer Gaul in 486 A.D., only Syagrius, King of the Romans, has the courage to stand in his way; but he pays a fearful price for his defiance. Shattered by a defeat that cost him his wife, his son, his city and his army, Syagrius wanders through the collapsing world of a dying empire. He finds refuge with a procurator broken by his past, a centurion haunted by betrayal, and a priestess desperate for love'all too proud and too honorable to compromise with the corruption that threatens to destroy them.

'Gorman has put a human face on a period of history which is usually covered in a few short paragraphs.''Inscriptions (4 star review)
