Rome: The Coming of the King

Historical Fiction: Rome 2




Violent unrest simmers on the furthest edges of Rome’s empire as one man battles to save his kingdom. The new historical adventure in M.C. Scott's Rome series.

AD 65. 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 inside the palace of a royal city and within the rocky fastness of a desert fortress, this will be a conflict between two men who have everything to gain - and a kingdom to lose ...
