The Pillars of Rome Summary

With barbarians at the gate and enemies within, two men must fight for the soul of the Republic. In a cave hacked out of rock, two young boys appeal to the famed Roman oracle for a glimpse into their future. In the flickering torchlight, the Sybil draws the blood-red shape of an eagle with wings outstretched: an omen of death. As they flee the cave in fear, Aulus and Lucius make an oath of loyalty until death. An oath that will be tested in the years to come.

Narrator Nick Boulton brings this story of prophecy, courage, history, and adventure to powerful life in this audio edition of the opening chapter of the Republic series.
