In 88 B.C., it seems as if the entire ancient world is at war. In the west, the Italian states are rebelling against Rome; in the east, Mithridates is marching through and conquering the Roman Asian provinces. Even in the relatively calm Alexandria, a coup has brought a new Pharaoh to power and chaos to the streets. The young Gordianus has been waiting out the chaos in Alexandria, with Bethesda, when he gets a cryptic message from his former tutor and friend, Antipater. Now in Ephesus, as part of Mithridates' entourage, Antipater seems to think that his life is in imminent danger. To rescue him, Gordianus concocts a daring, even foolhardy, scheme to go "behind enemy lines" and bring Antipater to safety. But there are powerful, and deadly forces, at work here, which have their own plans for Gordianus. Not entirely sure whether he's a player or a pawn, Gordianus must unravel the mystery behind the message if he's to save himself and the people he holds most dear.

  1. Underhållande visst, men...
    Storläsar'n (Umeå), 21 augusti 2017

    Kolossala tillfälligheter och otroliga utvecklingskedjor blandas med historiska fakta. Inte så roligt som Lindsey Davis eller Gary Corby, men ändå den bästa så långt i den här prequelserien om Gordianus Hittaren.

    Nånstans mellan tre och fyra stjärnor, men jag hamnar på tre eftersom det trots allt är mycket långt till den nivå som den "reguljära" Roma Sub Rosa-serien håller. En viss känsla av besvikelse är oundviklig.

Recensioner i media

With its expert mix of comedy and tragedy, Wrath may be Saylor's most thought-provoking work, a book that shows sympathy for all while asking us to ponder mankind's seemingly limitless capacity to do terrible things * USA Today * A compelling storyteller, with a striking talent for historical reconstruction * Times Literary Supplement * The Saylor hallmarks are meticulous recreation of Rome's grimy bustling streets and a brilliantly drawn cast of minor characters * The Sunday Times *
