The Circus Maximus, Rome, AD54. Veteran gladiator Flamma has a trident at his neck, but his Nubian opponent disobeys Emperor Nero’s command, and spares his life. That night, Flamma returns the favour and cuts the Nubian down from the cross. Everyone knows you don’t mess with Nero. The gladiators must escape Italy while they’re still in one piece. The duo becomes a trio when Dimitra, runaway Spartan slave and woman-warrior, joins them on an epic journey across the known world. Each is haunted by the past. Dimitra battles the tyranny of nobles. The Nubian seeks to regain a kingdom. Flamma has sworn to kill the man who stole his life. Can they defeat an empire, or will Rome grind them to dust? Flamma is a rollicking tale of adventure, love and danger, from ancient Rome to the mountains of Thrace, across the Mediterranean and into the North African desert. It’s a story of women and men who lived and died as heroes, when the world was young and dangerous.
