9780007499878: Iron and Rust (Throne of the Caesars, Book 1)

From the bestselling author of WARRIOR OF ROME comes the first book in a new series set in third century Rome, a dramatic era of murder, coup, counter-rebellions and civil war.

In a single year six Emperors will lay claim to the Throne of the Caesars…

SPRING AD235

Dawn on the Rhine. A surprise attack and the brutal murder of the Emperor Alexander and his mother ends the Severan dynasty and shatters four decades of Roman certainty.

Military hero Maximinus Thrax is the first Caesar risen from the barracks. A simple man of steel and violence, he will fight for Rome.

The Senators praise the new Emperor with elaborate oratory, but will any of them accept a Caesar who was once a shepherd boy? And in the streets of the eternal city, others merely pray to escape imperial notice.

In the north, as the merciless war against the barbarians consumes men and treasure, rebellion and personal tragedy drive Maximinus to desperate extremes, bloody revenge and the borders of sanity.

Iron & Rust, the first book in a major new series, creates a world both sophisticated and brutal, yet firmly rooted in history; a world of intrigue, murder, passion and war, a world where men will kill to sit on the Throne of the Caesars.

Product Description:

From the bestselling author of WARRIOR OF ROME comes the first book in a new series set in third century Rome; a dramatic era of murder, coup, counter-rebellions and civil war.

In the winter of AD234 no one could have predicted the coming catastrophe …

Emperor Alexander Severus has reigned for thirteen years and the Empire remains strong. Popular with the Senate and Rome’s people, his power is known across all four corners of the world. The Severan dynasty, apart from a brief interlude of a few months long ago, has held power for more than four decades. In the east a hard fought war has ended Sassanid Persian attacks. Peace reigns and Rome prospers.

But the unexpected assassination of the Emperor in the spring of AD235, will scupper the peace and change everything, for ever.

The first book in Sidebottom’s major new series set in third century Rome explores an era of unprecedented violence and turbulence which saw, for the first time, Emperors killed on the field of battle, cut down both by barbarians and by the soldiers of Rome herself. In the space of fifty years nearly as many men were to wear the imperial purple.

Product Description:

A monumental new roman series is here.

3rd century Rome, like you’ve never seen it before: murder, coup, terror on the streets, counter-rebellions and civil war.

In a single year six Emperors will lay claim to the Throne of the Caesars…
