Rome, 83 BC:
The Republic is disintegrating.
Ravaged by disease, tormented by vice, Lucius Cornelius Sulla has returned from exile determined to rebuild it, even if it means taking battle to the very walls of Rome and purging the city with blood.
There will be deaths without number or limit, but amid the chaos, three infinitely ambitious young Romans vie for greatness.
The young wolves are Pompeius Magnus, Marcus Crassus and the man the world will one day know by just one name: Caesar. Together, they are Fortune’s favourites – an endorsement that will prove as much a blessing as a curse.
