(From the publisher):
In the arena of the amphitheatre, the corpses of her enemies lay about. Poppea was striding towards her, but Nero? Her only son, born feet first, the cause of so much physical and spiritual pain?
"Will you?" I asked. "Could you kill him?"
Agrippina—mother of Nero, wife of Claudius—has no choice but to fight with her wits to stay alive. Emerging victorious in a secretivee plot to end the reign of Tiberius, she also proves to be a formidable opponent to her insane and cruel brother, Caligula. But as she rises to power as the wife of Claudius, her one weakness becomes apparent: her ambitious love for Nero.
In the treacherous arena of Ancient Rome, Agrippina knows that each player must fight to survive—or die. And be prepared to sacrifice anything or anyone...
