This is audiobook #2 in the Casca Series.
He was cursed by Jesus on Golgotha, condemned to immortality and the life of a soldier, until the Second Coming. Galley slave and gladiator, warrior and vagabond, Casca travels the world living by his wits and skills as a fighting man. Waiting, knowing he cannot die, he fears discovery.
His travels take him north to the land of the Vikings and then west to the Toltecs. In Mexico atop a storm-shrouded pyramid, priests prepare to offer Casca in sacrifice. The knife plunges, but the man who cannot die rises from the altar. Reclaiming his still-beating heart, he proclaims himself the God of Death.
