Rome has a new hero, but he may prove to be her greatest enemy yet.
Tarquin the Proud has been banished from Rome and the people have begun building their new republic. But there is still a great divide between the patricians and the plebeians, and tensions swiftly begin to run high.
It seems that only a hero can unite the two factions.
Rome finds her hero in the form of Caius Marcius, a scion of a great Roman family descended from kings. Time after time, Caius proves himself in battle, strengthening Rome’s power and expanding her borders while assuring himself of his own superiority, both on the battlefield and in Rome.
But Rome has already suffered under a proud ruler and they don’t want another. The people exiled a king; they can certainly banish a proud and arrogant young man.
But Caius Marcius will not go meekly to his fate. Cast out from his birthplace, separated from his family, Caius plots his revenge on Rome.
