AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'In the year that Mount Vesuvius destroyed Pompeii, Vitellan set off for the twenty-first century as Imperial Rome's last human time machine. He killed an unfaithful lover by just letting her grow old, but her hate pursued him across seven centuries. Later in 1358 he stood with a few dozen knights against an army of nine thousand to defend the life of a beautiful countess...and earned a love that would conquer death. Vitellan has awakened in the twenty-first century, a bewildered fugitive, betrayed and hunted in a world where minds and bodies are swapped and memories are bought, sold, and read like books. But worst of all, a deadly enemy from the fourteenth century is still very much alive - and closing in.' - from Libraries Australia
