"Glory: The mighty slave army, led by Spartacus, has carried all before it, scattering the legions of Rome. Who can stop him now, in this triumphant march towards the Alps and freedom? Vengeance: Can Crassus, the richest man in Rome, raise an army big enough to stop him? Will the defection of Crixus the Gaul, and all his men, fatally weaken Spartacus? Or will murmurings of discontent within his vast army of slaves turn to outright rebellion? War: While storm clouds mass on the horizon and spies and traitors stalk the land, Spartacus must face the most important choice of his life: forward, over the Alps to an uncertain freedom: or back, to face the might of Rome, and attempt to break its power over them forever."--Back cover.

This was my first try at a Ben Kane novel and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

It is the first in a duology. The story starts with Spartacus returning home after spending many years in the Roman Legion and ends with the third defeat of a Roman army by the slaves.

I always find it a good sign when I like the hero from the first chapter, in this case I liked the character of Spartacus from the first paragraph. He was everything I want my heroes to be. There was a massive amount of action, from small fights to large battles and everything in between. I think the charisma and determination that Spartacus must have had to lead such a group to defeat the Romans was portrayed well and the brutalness that must have been required was not overdone.
The only character that I wasn't that partial too was his love interest. Her character as a priestess and lover felt like they were added just to make Spartacus more human. Though without her I doubt he would be as likable a character.
