476 A.D. The Roman Empire, staggered by centuries of barbarian onslaughts and riddled with corruption, now faces its greatest challenge—not only to its power and prestige, but to its very existence…
He reduced Concordia, Altinum, and Patavium to ashes, captured Verona and Milan. He was the most dangerous enemy Rome had ever known. The legacy of Attila the Hun, once thought destroyed on the battlefield, has re-emerged to defy the power of the Western World. Now it’s the sons of Attila’s chief military commanders who are waging battle with one another as the dramatic confrontation between the Emperor and Rome’s barbarian conqueror leads to the thrilling conclusion that becomes the end of the greatest civilization on earth.
