Once a proud Senator in Imperial Rome, Marius is kidnapped and forced
into that dark realm of blood, where he is made a protector of the Queen and
King of the vampires, in whom the core of the supernatural race resides.
Through his eyes we see the fall of pagan Rome to the Emperor Constantine, the
horrific sack of the Eternal City at the hands of the Visigoths, and the vile
aftermath of the Black Death.
Ultimately restored by the beauty of the Renaissance, Marius becomes a
painter, living dangerously yet happily among mortals, and giving his heart to
the great master Botticelli, to the bewitching courtesan Bianca, and to the
mysterious young apprentice Armand. But it is in the present day, deep in the
jungle, when Marius will meet his fate seeking justice from the oldest vampires
in the world.
