Theudas ben Ya'ir and his friend Antonius Maximus are on a quest to free Theudas's mother from slavery. The trail points at the heart of the Parthian Empire, but to get there, they must join the Roman Emperor's legions as they pillage their way east. Can Theudas's new-fledged faith in Christ as his Messiah endure the fires of war?

Meanwhile, in the Parthian fortress city of Hatra, Theudas's mother Suzanna escapes the king's harem to earn coins by healing in hopes of buying passage back to Rome to find her son.

When Rome's legions encircle Hatra, Theudas and Antonius must find a way to break the siege, infiltrate the city, rescue Suzanna, and escape. Can mother and son reunite? And if so, can they survive?

This book can stand alone, but is also the culmination of the War Within series, which includes The Gladiator, The Legionnaire, and The Praetorian, also available on Amazon or www.NathanDMaki.com.
