Waterstones Says

Brimming with intrigue, danger and ruthless power games, the first instalment in a new trilogy from Iggulden's masterful pen revolves around Empress Agrippina's ambitious project of turning her son Nero into the ruler of all Rome.

Tyrants aren't born they're raised.

Ancient Rome, AD 37

It begins with a man's hand curled around another's throat. Emperor Tiberius first dispatches a traitor. Then his whole family. Next all his friends. It is as if he never existed.

This is Roman Justice

Into this fevered forum, a child is born. His mother is Agrippina, granddaughter of Emperor Augustus. But their imperial blood is no protection. The closer you are to the heart of the empire, the closer you are to power, intrigue, and danger.

She faces soldiers, senators, rivals, silver-tongued pretenders, each vying for position. One mistake risks exile, incarceration, execution. Or, worst of all, the loss of her infant son. For Agrippina knows that opportunity waits, even in your darkest moments. Her son is everything. She can make this boy, shape him into Rome itself - the one all must kneel before.

But first they must survive.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Deft and robust storytelling, that whips through the history with plenty of blood, guts and plot-twists - The Times

It’s another stonking read from one of the world’s leading authors of historical fiction, Iggulden’s flair for bringing the past to life and passion for historical sparkling like a polished legionary's gladius . . . Conn Igguden remains a hero to history . . . [A] Blockbuster historical novel - Daily Express

With merciless power and back-stabbing violence, this is an enticing trilogy - Woman's Weekly

“Great start to a new trilogy”

Life was cheap in Roman times! The violence and brutality meted out mindlessly is horrific. Nevertheless, I was so excited to find that Conn Iggulden is writing another trilogy, this time on the life of Nero, as his... More

“Harsh and unrelenting look at Roman life!!”

I’ve followed Conn Iggulden since his first novel and he very rarely disappoints. His books deal with some extremely brutal periods in history and this one is no different. Whilst I understand that this is probably... More
