Spartacus and the rebel army have been amassing victories and increasing their ranks ever since Glaber was defeated at Vesuvius. What was once a small but ferocious band of former slaves has turned into an undeniable force that the Roman elite have to address before it becomes too much to handle. To bring down the movement that began in Blood and Sand with the slaughter of the House of Batiatus, wealthy nobleman Marcus Crassus has been tapped to lead the Roman army; he has extra motivation to take out Spartacus, in that the only thing missing from his extensive resumee is a military victory. For that to come against the Bringer of Rain would make the triumph even sweeter.
