For so long Vibia Sabina, Empress of Rome, has done a balancing act with her husband. Every word and look is calculated according to his mood, because one false move on her part could lead to disaster for so many.

Hating Hadrian is almost as ingrained as being a Roman warrior for Vercingertorix the Red. The Emperor’s rages are legendary, but it is his cool and callous detachment when ordering Vix to take the heads of innocent men that makes Vix hate him even more.

Sabina’s careful handling of Hadrian’s temper is a delicate blend of honesty and surreptitiousness. As much as she wants to hate him, his brilliance and foresight will see Rome flourish, if she can keep him from destroying everything around them. Antinous is Vix’s beautiful and loving adopted son, and when Hadrian sees him it changes the course of history. Vix, Sabina, and all of Rome are in for the fight of the century, but in the end will all of the blood, sweat, and tears be worth the price they will have to pay?

Powerful women like Sabina are the world’s great manipulators. Where their husbands rampage over land and sea, it is the women in their lives that deliberate and scheme to keep everyone in line. Hadrian is extremely intelligent, but without Antinous, Sabina, and Vix, his volatility would likely be uncontrollable. From heart-wrenching love affairs to crushing losses, beautifully peaceful lazy days to war-torn agonizing months, it is all here in vivid and spectacular detail.
