In Kit Hudson’s original introduction to The Seventh Season, he called this dramatic account of the birth of Christianity ‘…a remarkable adventure story in the classic tradition with heroes, emperors and the obligatory sibyl all playing their part.

THE WORD OF GOD AGAINST THE WILL OF ROME
In 67AD, Johanan – the adventurous young scribe of the Apostle Andrew – flees the siege of Caesarea on a ship sailing for Greece. He is bound by oath to protect the Word of his master… no matter what pirates, fate or the gods of Olympus have in store for him.
Onboard, he meets two people who will change his life… and the course of history. The first is a Roman General appointed to organise the Olympic Games at which the Emperor Nero will compete. The second is Dido, an enigmatic young woman from Alexandria who is carrying a cargo of secrets. To uncover the truth about her past, Johanan must first prove himself worthy of her trust.
The Seventh Season is an epic adventure in the classical tradition that takes readers on a thrilling journey through the ancient world. Translated by Kit Hudson from controversial texts by Emmanuel of Samaria, it gives an explosive eyewitness account of the struggle between a dangerous new religion, and an Empire at the height of its powers.
