Nearly two decades have passed since Krista and her band of gladiators won their freedom, but the empire is far from peaceful. 

The Colosseum still remains and with their escape scarring Rome's history, the emperor's hunger for power has never been greater. 

Extinguishing all attempts at rebellion, it is only a matter of time before the enslaved people of Gallia take a stand against their tormentors. 

Fearing another slave rebellion, the Emperor Trajan orders the legions of Rome to march on Gallia. 

* * * 

Born to two gladiator parents, Lazarus's dreams are filled with following in their footsteps and fighting upon the sands of the arena. 

With his trusted friend by his side, Lazarus will make the journey to Rome only to find his future of glory thrown into turmoil.

The arrival of his parents in Rome has set off a chain of events that will test Lazarus's bravery and skills to the limit.

With a new young commander threatening his loved ones, Lazarus must choose between a life of glory and a life of freedom. 

And with everything not being what it seems, can Lazarus make his parents proud or will he die trying?

Non est ad astra mollis e terris via. 
There is no easy way from the earth to the stars.

Gaius Aurelius has a daughter who seems to like Krista. I guess, Octavia will be meeting Lazarus.
