Duration: 11 hours 28 minutes
In the year 2448, the interstellar Empire of Rome spans an area almost as wide as the far-flung colonial worlds of the United States of America.
Caesar Numa Pompeii is still rebuilding his shredded empire after the catastrophic war that his predecessor, Caesar Romulus, waged against the United States. Numa has under his command a powerful living weapon, a patterner, an augmented man, capable of synthesizing vast amounts of data into actionable intelligence.
War’s end has left Romulus in a nanovirus-induced coma, captive of Caesar Numa. Then suddenly, fanatical devotees of Romulus rescue their fallen leader from his tortured captivity and fashion him into the most capable patterner ever created. Now, Numa has lost his prisoner, and he also has reason to fear that his own patterner has turned on him.
Romulus is back, more insanely brilliant than ever. And he will move heaven and Earth and space and time to regain what he wants.
With past and future hinging on a critical moment when time broke once before in the distant star cluster known as the Myriad, Admiral John Farragut returns to the space battleship Merrimack in an attempt to head off the impending temporal catastrophe.
