Summary

Aurelius Castus is one of the leading military commanders of an empire riven by civil war, but age is telling upon him. Castus discovers that the emperor's son Crispus aims to depose his ruthless father and restore the old ways of Rome. With a sadistic torturer on his trail, Castus must choose between honour and survival, and face a final confrontation with the most powerful man in the Roman world: the emperor Constantine himself.

peace at a price

masterful story to climax this series, the sea battles and attention to detail are brilliant, the narration excellent as usual, but sadness at the loss of characters who've been on this long journey, can castus finally have peace, one last fight defending his home and family. the Latin bounded about aside as I sought translation, this has been a tremendous epic over 30yrs from slaves to emperors thourghly enjoyed.
