AD 25, the Adriaticum. Pirate ships hunt merchantmen across the stormy waters of the vast seas. But their control of these waters is threatened by the actions of a callous Roman commander Ship’s boy Telemachus has left behind grinding poverty in the Piraeus to join the crew of the merchant ship Selene. Only recently a scrawny youth, he has become a strong and skilled seafarer after weeks of hardship at sea. Now he has fallen into the hands of pirates: As a pirate recruit under Captain Bulla, Telemachus faces cruel initiation rites and the dangerous enmity of the ship’s ambitious first mate.
He takes heart from the goal that drives him: Then the pirates are confronted by the aftermath of a terrible attack by Prefect Canis, commander of the Ravenna fleet and a man who will not rest until every pirate crew has been wiped out.
