Quinquereme and heavy ballistae adorn the stage of this seaborne adventure, another thrilling episode in the tales of Lucius Domitius, soldier of Rome...

49 - 48 B.C., Adriatic Sea - The Roman Republic is embroiled in civil war. Left behind to convalesce in Rome while Caesar's army is afoot in Greece, Centurion Lucius Domitius desperately seeks any means to return to the field. Master of Horse Marc Antony coaxes him into accepting a mission that would, by all appearances, allow him to rejoin his legion.

He soon discovers his mission had an ulterior purpose, involving a shadowy brotherhood that seeks to become the new ruling power in Rome. Amid battle on land and sea, Lucius must foil the secret plot before the fates of Caesar and the army, as well as his own, are sealed...
