‘Teems with colour, energy and spills’ – Time Out

Germany, A.D. 9. Highly-esteemed Roman soldier, Manoletus, finds himself trapped and immersed in Varus’ camp surrounded by dead comrades, but manages to flee. Thinking himself safe, he encounters a more fearsome enemy than the German army: the Tenebrae and its Ataru. This deadly, cloaked, blood-sucking killer and keeper of the Underworld, capable of slaying villages of people, trains its gaze upon Manoletus.
The Tenebrae are born from Cleopatra’s death, and Manoletus’ path becomes tied with the legend and is drawn to Egypt to delve deeper into the mystery of these immortal creatures.
Still on the run, Manoletus meets a late comrade’s daughter and vows to protect her. When the Tenebrae send her back to Rome, Manoletus is determined to make his way home to her. But will Manoletus find her before the Tenebrae find him?
