Volkard is a displaced warrior with an unquenchable thirst for blood trying to make a place for himself among the Germanic tribes. Their raids on wealthy Romans fuel his desire to kill. One person invades his craving.
The attack on one villa changed everything. Salomeh knelt in prayer like the other slaves. He knew he had to save her or doom his soul. Volkard's only aim becomes saving her, even if the price is his life.
He fails his mission. He doesn't protect her and is captured and sold to become a gladiator for the joy of Rome.
Will her faith and the new religion she shows him sustain him or fuel his revenge?
