Publisher's Summary

The mighty slave army, led by Spartacus, has carried all before it, scattering the legions of Rome. Three praetors, two consuls and one proconsul have been defeated. Spartacus seems invincible as he marches towards the Alps and freedom. But storm clouds are massing on the horizon. Crixus the Gaul defects, taking all his men with him. Crassus, the richest man in Rome, begins to raise a formidable army, tasked specifically with the defeat of Spartacus. And within the slave army itself, there are murmurings of dissent and rebellion. Spartacus, on the brink of glory, must make a crucial decision - to go forward over the Alps to freedom, or back to face the might of Rome and try to break its stranglehold on power forever.

What the Critics Say

"The author comes into his own during the numerous battle scenes when his burly prose highlights the pain, brutality and chaos of ancient combat...Kane's Spartacus is brave, vain, ruthless and sexy, a Superman for more savage times...The author is genuinely deserving of praise for taking on this mighty subject matter in such a bold and regularly entertaining fashion. Admirers of Kane's work to date will not be disappointed and there's every chance this latest instalment will attract plenty more." (Daily Express)

"Kane succeeds in drawing a convincing picture of how it might have been, which is what a good historical novel should do." (Historical Novel Society)

"Ben Kane's superb Spartacus 'mini series' takes historical Roman novel writing to heady new heights in the final, pulsating instalment of the slave rebellion that shook the mighty Roman empire... [a] bold and brutal trip to the heat and heart of an ancient legend... an epic story conveyed with power, passion, gut-wrenching realism and enough emotion to fill the long and gruesomely historic Appian Way from Rome to Capua..." (Press Association syndicated review)

    "Fantastic conclusion to the Spartacus story"

    I have listened to all of Ben Kane's audio books and found them all really well written and immensely interesting.

    The conclusion to the Spartacus saga is brilliant. You feel that you get to know Spartacus more intimately. The author leads you through a range of emotions from laughing out loud to quiet contemplation. The story continues from the first Spartacus novel and engrosses you from the moment that you press play. The characters are breathed into life brilliantly by Michael Praedd and you really feel part of the story.

    Overall a fantastic read, highly recommended.
