In the face of such difficulty, the two enemies must unite in order to survive, and retrieve what they each feel is rightfully theirs. But with their fates intertwined, one man must make a terrible sacrifice.
Meanwhile, Lorenzo is haunted by the ghosts of his past as he is beaten and bloodied in Naples. His only hope at winning a place at the King’s table is to take part in King Ferrante’s cruel and gruesome Game of Thrace. A horse, a noose and one arrow is all that stand between Lorenzo and imminent death. What will happen to Florence’s ruler?
