    In the year that Mount Vesuvius destroyed Pompeii, the Roman centurion Vitellan set off for the 21st century as Imperial Rome's last human powered time machine.  He killed an unfaithful lover just by letting her grow old but her hate pursued him across seven centuries. In 1358 he stood with a few dozen knights against an army of nine thousand to defend a beautiful countess - and earned a love that would conquer death.  Now Vitellan has awakened in the 21st century, bewildered, betrayed and hunted in a world where bodies and minds are swapped and memories are bought, sold and read like books. But worst of all, a deadly enemy from the 14th century is alive and closing in.
