“A skillful, exciting blend of history, action, and drama set in the ancient world. Recommended!” — Kirkus
To celebrate political freedom and this week’s international Frankfurt Book Fair, the Kindle edition of the Thomas Greanias epic Gods of Rome is on sale for only 99 cents. It’s only for a few short days and the last time this year on Amazon. When it’s over, Gods of Rome goes back up to $9.99 on Kindle and $19.99 in trade paperback. Then it rolls out to bookstores everywhere in the U.S. and abroad.
Meet the wildly popular playwright Athanasius in Ancient Rome, who is falsely condemned by jealous rivals.
Join him as he miraculously escapes certain death in the arena with a state secret that could bring down the empire and avenge the life and love he lost.
Hold on tight to the reins of your runaway chariot as Gods of Rome sweeps you from the halls of power in Caesar’s palace to the slums of the city, from rat-infested sewers to the high seas, from one end of a mighty empire to another and everywhere in between, where countless assassins lurk, throat-grabbing surprises await, and “death is guaranteed.” Always.
Experience the intrigue and excitement of this meticulously researched and masterfully crafted conspiracy thriller of epic scale inspired by real people and events.
“Gods of Rome is an intelligent, fast-moving historical novel with nonstop action, narrow escapes, and violent encounters, as well as much food for thought,” raves Kirkus Reviews.
“The ancient world comes alive in well-chosen details, from the mundane to the arcana of spycraft, codes, and disguises. Greanias’ characterization is vivid even for minor figures and especially so for Athanasius, who goes through a believable struggle and transformation over the tale’s course. Greanias smartly illuminates the religious, philosophical, historical, and even economic issues that underpin the story, while never letting the pace lag. Recommended!”
