70AD. Disgraced, dishonoured and banished into exile on pain of
execution if he ever returns to Rome, the former military tribune
Gaius Valerius Verrens makes his way East through the death and
destruction of the savage Judaean rebellion. Valerius knows his
only hope of long term survival and a restoration of his family's

and son of the newly crowned Emperor Vespasian. But when he reaches

will regain his honour cannot be won in the negotiations in the
murky tunnels beneath Jerusalem. Only amid the fire and blood of
battle will he equal the glory that brought him the title Hero of
