"Ben Kane's superb Spartacus 'mini series' takes historical Roman novel writing to heady new heights in the final, pulsating instalment of the slave rebellion that shook the mighty Roman empire... [a] bold and brutal trip to the heat and heart of an ancient legend... tough, uncompromising prose, allied to a refreshingly human and humane portrayal of the principal protagonists... an epic story conveyed with power, passion, gut-wrenching realism and enough emotion to fill the long and gruesomely historic Appian Way from Rome to Capua... Kane approaches the legendary warrior with a fresh eye, a raw and convincing realism..." ( Press Association)Vom Verlag:
The mighty slave army, led by Spartacus, has crushed all before it, scattering the legions of Rome. Now invincible, he marches towards the Alps and freedom.
But storm clouds are growing on the horizon. Crassus, the richest man in Rome, has raised an army to rival Spartacus, and there are murmurings of rebellion in Spartacus’ own army.
Spartacus, on the brink of glory, must make a crucial decision - to go forward over the Alps to freedom, or back to face the might of Rome and try to break its power forever.
