What if Spartacus wasn’t really the all-American hero as portrayed by Kirk Douglas?
Films about the infamous gladiator-turned-general have omitted the fact that his army escaped the Roman military but, standing on the brink of freedom, chose not to cross the Alps. Instead, they turned and headed back into the heart of Italy. Why?
Historians may never uncover the truth about the medallions that Spartacus made atop Mount Vesuvius. The medallions, and not superior fighting skills, allowed his slave army to defeat the Roman military for years. But there was a price to pay.
Now, a demon who has planned apocalypse since the time of Spartacus is on the verge of escaping his dimension. Only a handful of people can discover the truth, defeat the demon, and prevent the apocalypse. Is there still time?
Dream War, a thriller, weaves together Roman history with modern-day, dark fantasy. It will leave you questioning how much is fact and how much, if any, is fiction.
that kind of hyperbole is off putting in the extreme.
Spartacus as an "all american hero" is a howler.
You may have an idea here but you've given it a hook with a bad haircut and high water pants.
