Summary (From the publisher):

The Evening of the World is set in the period of the barbarian invasions. Its hero, a young Roman nobleman named Marcus, undergoes extraordinary experiences as he searches for meaning and stability in a twilight world where the old gods are dead or dying.

His journeys take him over the empire, from Italy to Greece and Byzantium, from a Christian monastery to the horde of Attila the Hun. His is a world where everything is possible and nothing solid; a world full of danger and mystery, love and terror, of simple faith and abstruse philosophy, of cruelty, treachery and undaunted courage.
