Summary

Rome, AD 67. Vespasian is tasked with the impossible: should he quell the revolt in Judaea, as the emperor Nero has instructed? If his conquest succeeds, he risks becoming the sole object of the emperor's jealousy. If he fails, then his punishment will be severe. But Nero has committed suicide. 

Sabinus, Vespasian's brother, is caught between the warring factions of Aulus Vitellius, a cruel opportunist, and the noble Marcus Salvius Otho, who finds himself severely outnumbered. Seeing no aid on the horizon, Sabinus must rely on wit to ensure the safety of his family. With a contested throne, now may finally be Vespasian's time - to ascend, to conquer, and to take control of Rome itself.

A solid book of Vespasians assuming power, A great listen/read. Well worth the price. It charts the end of the series and is written as a positive narrative. I enjoy the book greatly and would heartily recommend it. You may quibble with some of the historic aspects but it is as accurate as you don't expect 2000 years after the events!
