Publisher's Summary

When Clovis moves to conquer Gaul in AD 486, only Syagrius, King of the Romans, has the courage to stand in his way and pays a fearful price for his defiance. Shattered by a defeat that costs him his wife, his son, his city, and his army, Syagrius wanders through the collapsing world of a dying empire to find refuge with a procurator broken by his past, a centurion haunted by betrayal, and a priestess desperate for love, all too proud and too honorable to compromise with the corruption that threatens to destroy them. And there, on a beach in Crete, they make their final stand together...

Hurt my ears

I will probably write a proper review once I have listened to this book to the end, but for now just a warning: the sound quality is very poor. I have been listening to a lot of Audible books on headset, so far with no problems, but this one has so many hisses and high sounds that it is actualy painfull to listen to on headset.
