When Lysander and his barracks are sent to Taras, Italy, to protect a vital trading post threatened by a local uprising, he spies a statue of a figure wearing the Fire of Ares and sets out to discover his connection to the city, hoping to learn more of his mysterious heritage.
One of the boys in the barracks coughed in his sleep. Lysander's head was heavy with dreams of battle - images of slaughter chasing each other through his brain. Ares, God of War, snatching men's lives by sword and spear.
A floorboard creaked.
Lysander shot out an arm, his eyes snapping open, and grabbed a thin wrist. He drew his dagger from beneath his rolled blanket.
