Summary

A young slave embarks upon an adventure when a female slave arrives at his master's house with a mysterious note written on a wax tablet.

When his master disappears and a slave called Tog arrives with a secret message, Cadmus is swept up on a quest that leads to Emperor Nero and his crazed determination to possess the Golden Fleece of Greek mythology.

The journey will push him to the edge of the Roman Empire and reveal unexpected truths about himself.
