Publisher's Summary

AD 273. Obsessed by the solar religions of the east, the emperor Aurelian sets out to obtain every sacred object within his realm. But one - a mysterious rock said to channel the power of the sun god - lies beyond his reach.

Warrior-priest Ilaha has captured the legendary stone and is using it to raise an army against Rome. For imperial agent Cassius Corbulo and ex-gladiator bodyguard Indavara, stopping him constitutes their greatest challenge yet.

Assisted by a squad of undercover soldiers and a Saracen chieftain, they trek south across the deserts of Arabia, encountering sandstorms, murderous moneylenders and a ruthless German mercenary. And when they finally reach Ilaha's mountain fortress, they face thousands of warriors who will give their lives to protect him...and the black stone.

    using English books to refine pronunciation is one of the best ways and Audible gives the best.

    "Loved it from beginning to end. Thank you."

    I am no expert on books. All I can say is that I thoroughly enjoyed the story and the narration from beginning to end..

    "Enjoyable listen"

    Overall this was an enjoyable listen and I would happily read the book.
    I only gave it 4 stars out of 5 however as the authors attempts to make the main character human and filled with remorse towards the end of the book spoilt it a bit for me and I would probably have skipped these pages in a book.
    Otherwise a worthwhile story
