As winter approaches in 74 BC, few travellers are abroad. But one man is making the long and weary last stage of his way home. Large parts of his homeland, Thrace, a land north of Greece, has fallen under the hated power of Rome. This Thracian has fought in the Roman legions for nearly a decade. He is skilled, hardened in battle, a sophisticated fighter. Spartacus.

A slow but epic story. Narrator pauses dramatically after most sentences which probably made this an hour longer than it needed to be! I enjoyed it all the same and look forward to part 2!
