In the new Rome, duplicity and death reign supreme.

It's the mid-11th century, and the Byzantine Empire dominates the world. Within the walls of its great capital, Constantinople, treachery, debauchery and power politics are part of the lives of the ruling elite.

Thrust into this heady mix is the Viking adventurer, Harald Hardrada. Life in the court of the new emperor, deranged Michael the Fifth, holds extreme danger at every turn, as Harald becomes a pawn in the various factions' thirst for power.

Can he survive this dangerous place, and turn his mind towards regaining what is rightfully his?

Praise from readers:

★★★★★ - "Perfect blend of reality and fiction. A great story from an insightful author."

★★★★★ - "The author weaves a fascinating and compelling story that captures the reader instantly and never lets go. In this world, seduction is a principal instrument for control, influence, espionage, sabotage and just sheer pleasure. These characters are bigger than life itself and so were their appetites for power, control, wealth and influence. A compelling and heroic tale."

★★★★★ - "Excellent historical thriller."
