"A historical novel of one of the most storied uprisings of classic times by an emerging master of the genre. From the author of Pride of Carthage, the superb fictional rendering of Hannibal's epic military campaigns against Carthage's archenemy Rome, comes the perfect follow-up: an equally superb novel of the legendary gladiator Spartacus and the vast slave revolt he led that came ever so close to bringing Rome and its supposedly invincible legions to its knees. No one brings more verve, intelligence, and freshness to the perennially commercial sword-and-sandals genre than David Anthony Durham. "David Anthony Durham has serious chops. I can't wait to read whatever he writes next."--George R.R. Martin"--
