Sara becomes torn between love and duty when she is chosen by the gods to assassinate the father of her beloved. Emperor Titus is the most powerful and ruthless villain in the world. Terminating him seems to be her only option, but Sara soon finds that there is so much more to the tyrant than meets the eye. Titus takes Sara on a journey through his dark and twisted path and shows her the true burden of his crown of golden leaves. Will she be able to follow through with his murder?

"The characters are one of the story's strongest points, from evil emperors to gladiators and slaves. The plot is handled well, and the setting is the glory and decadence of ancient Rome. It is the perfect place for Catalina DuBois to tell a love story filled with tragedy and hope. She does just that and she does it very well. An excellent read!"

"I didn't want to be drawn to Titus. I fought hard against it for several chapters. Everything in me told me that Titus was not supposed to be my pick, but that's exactly how outstanding DuBois's writing is. She spins a backstory like no one else in this genre. Titus, in all his loathsome and vile glory, is truly the standout in this book. His backstory is heart-wrenching and sheds new light on his choices and his treatment of Sara. He absolutely stands as my favorite in the long list of DuBois's characters."
