Rome, 68 A.D. Novius Senna is one of the most feared men in Rome. He's part of the emperor's inner circle at a time when being Nero's friend is almost as dangerous as being his enemy. Senna knows that better men than he have been sacrificed to Nero's madness—he's the one who tells them to fall on their swords. He hates what he's become to keep his family safe. He hates Nero more.
Aenor is a newly-enslaved Bructeri trader, brutalized and humiliated for Nero's entertainment. He's homesick and frightened, but not entirely cowed. He's also exactly what Senna has been looking for: a slave strong enough to help him assassinate Nero.
It's suicide, but it's worth it. Senna yearns to rid Rome of a tyrant, and nothing short of death will bring him peace for his crimes. Aenor hungers for revenge, and dying is his only escape from Rome's tyranny. They have nothing left to lose, except the one thing they never expected to find—each other.
