The Persian sorcerer has withdrawn to a hidden citadel with the remnants of the army of the King of Kings, and a very special new servant. He vows to regain the Peacock Throne.
Prince Maxian has raised both Julius Caesar and Alexander the Great from the dead. Now, with the power that their legends can offer him, he will risk all to free Rome from the curse that protects the Empire but dooms it to stagnation.
And in the East, Dwyrin's thaumaturgic unit is shattered when Zo discovers the destruction of Palmyra. She vows revenge against the Empire that abandoned her city to its fate and goes to raise the Deccopolis against Rome, while in the city of Mecca, a survivor of Palmyra receives a vision, a command, and the power to strive against the forces of darkness.
The war is far from over. Now there are three alliances where once there were only two, and three Powers to strive for control of the Earth.
