Overview

Jacob Abbott was one of the famous authors in the Abbott family during the 19th century, which also included his historian brother John. Unlike his brother, Jacob wrote kids books.
Nero ranks among the very worst of the Caesars, alongside the likes of mad Caligula, slothful Commodus, and paranoid Domitian, a figure so hated that, in many ancient Christian traditions, he is literally considered the Antichrist. According to a notable Biblical scholar, the coming of the Beast and the number 666 in the Book of Revelation are references to Nero. He was the man who famously "fiddled while Rome burned", an inveterate lecher, a murderous tyrant who showed little compunction in murdering his mother and who liked to use Christian martyrs as a source of illumination at night by burning them alive. His economic policies, according to many historians, virtually bankrupted Rome.

The great dragon landed, anger making his scales steam in the cold air of the mountains. He sniffed the air and started into a cave, power pulsating from the interior.

He chuckles. "Of course not. We're frenemies." He whistles a jaunty tune, looking around.
