9780593065433: Rome: The Coming of the King

Two men. Divided by hate. Bound by war. The new historical adventure in M.C. Scott's Rome series.

AD 65: Two men can change the destiny of an empire. Sebastos Pantera, spy to the Emperor Nero, has undertaken the most dangerous of missions. Hunting often alone, with few he can trust, he must find Saulos, the most dangerous man in Rome's empire, and bring him to bloody justice.

Against him is Saulos. Consumed by private enmities and false beliefs, Saulos is pledged to bring about the destruction of an entire Roman province. Brilliantly clever, utterly ruthless, he cares only for his vision of total victory -- and not the death and devastation such a campaign would bring.

Between them is the huntress Ikshara. Beautiful and deadly, feared by men, loved by the beasts she cares for, she must decide who to support if she is to avenge her father's death.

Fought in the alleys and palaces of a royal city and inside the rocky fastness of a desert fortress, this is a violent and personal war between two men who have everything to gain -- and a kingdom to lose.
