In the previous book of the Flavius Josephus Journals, Dominance ended with the decimation of the Roman legions garrisoned in the Levant. Under the military and civil leadership of Joseph ben Matthias, Governor of Galilee, the Jews have gained their freedom from Roman oppression and celebrate their deliverance,which does not go unnoticed by the surrounding nations that also find themselves still dominated by the Empire and begin dreaming of their own liberation. Aware of the growing problem in the East, the Emperor Nero summons his most illustrious general, the conqueror of Britannia, Flavius Vespasianus, along with his son Titus, with instruction to subjugate the Jews, eliminate the rebellion and do what is necessary to ensure that the stubborn Judeans will never be a sore on the backside of Rome ever again. Joseph finds himself in the undesirable position of being the center of the adoration of his people but through his liaison with Berenice, the beautiful Queen of Ulatha, he is aware that this adulation might be short lived, especially when she warns him that the Romans are coming!
