They’re not saints, nor are they heroes. No, they’ve been chosen for something deeper, their strength, because they believe in Good, but understand they have to embrace the Evil in order to defeat it. They will do what saints can’t, what heroes won’t, fighting a secret war for an end that, at times, will require accepting horrific means.
They are Tricent, the elite unit of spies branded with one mission: to protect the very foundation of Rome and stand between peace and chaos.
Jason is a slave and ex-gladiator, young, beautiful, and hardened by his struggle to survive a harsh life of unspeakable evil. Mallia is an elite Senator’s daughter, embedded in a privileged world she’s come to despise. Argus and Tacitus are disgraced soldiers, cast from their legion and the only life they’ve known. Assembled by Severus, a retired General and close confidant of the Emperor, they will die to their old lives and be reborn as something entirely different.
TRICENT is a modern story of intrigue, heartache, romance, and suspense set against the backdrop of an imagined Ancient Rome in all its glory and horror.

"Alyson Santos did a beautiful job weaving factual history in this fictional story. She blew me away with her twists and turns and intriguing storyline. Just when I thought I had her story figured out, she took me in a different direction. Yes, she will keep you guessing with each and every page. This book is just brilliant. Even though I normally gravitate to different genres, I fell in love with this historical romance. I enjoyed being transported back to ancient times.
This is one of my favorite books I’ve read this year. You will be on the edge of your seat with this fantastic written story. I awarded this book 5 Phenomenal Stars!"

"Every minute of this book I remained captivated by these characters. Their story held so much depth beyond Tricent. It speaks of love, loss and the restraints they find themselves born into but how even with those restraints there are ways to do what is right."

"Read it once, then twice, and even a third time because I couldn't let go. I had songs playing through my head the whole book and the songs matched the scenes perfectly. I wept at the turmoil and despair that Jason faces, then smiled at the possible connection to another person after so much turmoil and despair. The characters are so developed & I could "see" ancient Rome with the descriptions that the talented Alyson Santos has weaved. I'm hanging on a bit of a cliff & have a book hangover, can't wait to read more!"
