This is the last in the farmer-turned-Emperor series of Videssos books. I don't know if this is loosely based on real Roman history or not, but it seems like considering the author's tendency to do that. It always seems if the Empire is on the verge of disaster, going from one crisis to another. Maybe that was historically normal, but it makes the books feel a bit chaotic. Good, but not great. ( )

Krispos had held the throne of Videssos since he was scarcely more than a peasant youth. But now a strange heresy has taken root in the land, a hidden dissent that is flaring into open revolt. As Krispos leads his legions with his three sons, against the rebels, one son disappears into the rebel ranks. Then the renegades seize the day, and Krispos wages an ever more desperate war against an implacable foe that would not scruple to set brother against brother, father against son....
