About the Book
You live in an age when Rome rules the world and astrology rules Rome.
You are a sixteen-year-old apprentice in the Great Library of Alexander, a slave, when you hear that your Roman masters are searching for 16-year-olds with a particular birth time, just as king Herod searched for two-year-old Jesus who astrologers predicted would become the king of the Jews.
Instead of killing you the authorities send you to Rome to serve Agrippina, the emperor’s niece, who believes the stars have foretold that you are destined to help her raise her ten-year-old son to the imperial throne. This draws you into astrology-inspired court intrigues which force you to decide whether Nero is the Christian’s Antichrist who “fiddles” while Rome burns or a musical genius trapped inside a Caesar.
