Will a father kill his son for a woman? 
Blood Empire recounts the story of Flavius Crispus, the star-crossed, eldest son of Constantine the Great. Set against the violence and depravity of Imperial Rome, it is a tale of twisted family bonds, wicked women, and broken promises.
Crispus is the linchpin in Constantine's scheme to unite a divided empire under a strange and blood-soaked new religion, but he is too much like his father for his own good. When betrayal pulls Constantine into a civil war with his brother-in-law, it threatens to engulf Italy in a whirlwind of fire and ash and his relationship with Crispus suffers a fatal blow. 
In the balance of both swings Fausta, Constantine's beautiful but faithless wife and the loyal daughter of a ruthless clan equally determined to seize power. Fausta has plans for her children to replace Crispus as Constantine's heir, and she is determined to have her way at all costs. Her scheming ignites her husband's passions and sets off one of the greatest battles in history and a moment of prophesy that changes the world forever.

From the Back Cover:

The early days of the Christian Roman Empire are dangerous and chaotic times. The strange new religion is a disaster for Rome and threatens to upset a balance of power 1000 years in the making. Tied to the fate of millions is Flavius Crispus, the eldest son of Constantine the Great who is as charismatic as his father is and twice as ambitious. In the gritty arena where Roman political families play, murder and mayhem are everyday occurrences and lust for power makes for bonds stronger than blood.

At the center of it all is a woman of extraordinary talents with beauty to match. As the empress of Rome, Flavia Maxima Fausta is Constantine's wife and the prized daughter of a ruthless clan of Dacian upstarts. Fausta would see her children follow Constantine on the throne and the only thing standing in her way is Crispus, a rising star and the heir apparent. Fausta plots against him on a grand scale and the outcome of her plotting threaten to change the course of history unless Crispus can figure out a way to thwart her plans.
