In Mesopotamia, AD 260, Ballista faces yet another enemy, the man the Syrians call the Lion of the Sun. Betrayed by his most trusted advisor, Roman Emperor Valerian has been captured by the Sassanid barbarians. The shame of the vanquished beats down mercilessly like the desert sun as the frail old emperor prostrates himself before Shapur, king of kings. Ballista looks on helplessly but vows under his breath to avenge those who have brought the empire to the brink of destruction with their treachery. But first he must decide what price he will pay for his own freedom. Only the fearless and only those whom the gods will spare from hell can now save the empire from a catastrophic ending. Ballista, the warrior of Rome, faces his greatest challenge yet.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The qualities a writer of such stories needs—imagination stimulated through the soles of his feet as he walks the scenes of his tale, and a sound knowledge of the period—are abundantly possessed by Sidebottom.” Times Literary Supplement (London)
“A book to keep you up well past your bedtime…I loved it…It is the aspiration of every academic I know to turn his subject into blockbuster fiction…Harry Sidebottom…must be the envy of his peers.” Evening Standard (London)
“Harry Sidebottom’s epic tale starts with a chilling assassination and goes on, and up, from there.” Mary Beard, author of The Roman Triumph
