Roma, 66 dopo Cristo. Gli uomini di Nerone danno la caccia agli ultimi sopravvissuti che hanno preso parte alla cospirazione di Pisone. Eppure, nonostante le vipere siano state eliminate con il ferro e il fuoco, il giovane imperatore, sempre più instabile, sente che il suo potere si sta indebolendo. La minaccia più pericolosa arriva da Oriente, dove Nerone teme che il generale Corbulone si stia preparando a marciare contro Roma. Gaio Valerio Verre, eroe di Roma, viene inviato ad Antiochia, ma una volta lì scopre che Corbulone non è affatto interessato a Roma, ma cerca anzi di contrastare la minaccia rappresentata dal re dei Parti, Vologase. In inferiorità numerica, Corbulone marcerà, con Valerio al suo fianco, oltre il fiume Tigri, per incontrare Vologase in un confronto che deciderà il futuro dell’impero.

Britannia, 59 d.C. Il potere di Roma sul territorio dell'odierna Inghilterra si sta indebolendo. L'imperatore Nerone ha distolto la sua attenzione da questo remoto avamposto, e l'ascesa dei Druidi, che gettano semi di ribellione tra le tribù britanniche, sembra inarrestabile. Le vessazioni e lo sfruttamento delle popolazioni sottomesse hanno fatto crescere il malcontento, e la regina guerriera Budicca, tradita, umiliata e oltraggiata dai Romani, sta preparando un imponente esercito per combattere e cacciare gli invasori. Gaio Valerio Verre, tribuno al comando dei veterani di Colonia Claudia, si appresta a contrastare i rivoltosi con un esercito di soli tremila uomini.

Gaius Valerius Verrens returns to Rome from the successful campaign against Boudicca in Britain. Now hailed a 'Hero of Rome', Valerius is not the man he once was - scarred both physically and emotionally by the battles he has fought, his sister is mortally ill, his father in self-imposed exile. And neither is Rome the same city as the one he left. The Emperor Nero grows increasingly paranoid. Those who seek power for themselves whisper darkly in the emperor's ears. They speak of a new threat, one found within the walls of Rome itself.
