Summary

Ambición, conspiraciones, amor y traición en una magnífica novela histórica entre Roma House of Cards.

Cuando se trata de hacerse con el poder,
siempre hay que temer lo peor.


En los albores del siglo VII d. C. Constantinopla es el centro del mundo, la nueva capital del Imperio romano en Oriente. Una urbe gigantesca y esplendorosa que bulle con ambiciones, conspiraciones y traiciones. Al mismo tiempo, el Imperio romano, otrora próspero y temido, se encuentra al borde del derrumbe y todos, persas, bárbaros y árabes, codician la poderosa capital mientras el mundo se prepara para entrar en una nueva Era.

La intriga está servida. Dos jóvenes que quieren acabar con el emperador usurpador atrincherado en Constantinopla, un ejército de doce mil hombres y un arma secreta: la joven que les franqueará el acceso a la capital del Imperio y a quien hay que conquistar para apoderarse del trono.

Baptiste Touverey nos ofrece una novela épica de gran aliento y ritmo trepidante, que recrea un escenario brutal y emocionante, plagado de intrigas, con unos protagonistas cuyos destinos cruzados trazan los contornos de una civilización de la que somos herederos.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

Ambition, conspiracies, love, and betrayal in a magnificent historical novel that falls somewhere in between Rome and House of Cards.
 
When in search of power and control, you always have to fear the worst.
 
At the dawn of the 7th century A.D. Constantinople was the center of the world; it was the new capital of the Roman Empire in the East. A colossal and splendid city that bustled with ambitions, conspiracies, and betrayals. While at the same time the Roman Empire, which was once affluent and feared, is on the verge of collapse and all, Persians, barbarians, and Arabs, covet the powerful capital as the world prepares to enter a new Era.
 
Intrigue is everywhere: two young men who want to get rid of the usurper emperor who is fixed and ingrained in Constantinople; an army of twelve thousand men and a secret weapon: the young woman who would grant them access to the capital of the Empire, and whom they must conquer in order to seize the throne.
 
Baptiste Touverey offers an epic novel with a great build-up and fast-paced rhythm, that recreates a brutal and exciting scene full of intrigues, and with protagonists whose crossed destinies trace the lines of a civilization of which we are heirs.
