9780099280521: The October Horse (Masters of Rome)

The sixth book in the epic Masters of Rome series

Julius Caesar is in the prime of his life and at the height of his powers. But behind the myth lies a man beset with contradictions. Happily married, he is also the lover of the enigmatic Egyptian queen, Cleopatra. A great general, he wishes to bring to an end Rome's endless wars. Conscious of his own power, and contemptuous of lesser men, he is determined not to be worshipped as a living god or crowned emperor. But Caesar is a man whose very greatness attracts envy and jealousy to a dangerous degree, and as the political intrigues which surround him reach their climax, his destruction becomes inevitable. As the Ides of March approach, one of the most powerful stories in history reaches its dramatic conclusion -

Review:

"McCullough's expert command of the historical facts from a broad range of ancient and contemporary sources makes this the kind of novel that tests and expands even an expert's knowledge of Roman history" (James Hawking Historical Novels Review)

"This is a marvellous, sweeping story with all the familiar characters - Cleopatra, Mark Antony, Brutus et al - which brings the periods vividly alive, and retells a vital period in world history in a splendidly accessible way" ( Books Magazine)

"[A] swiftly moving story ... packed full of political intrigue, romance, drama, and war" ( Booklist)

Book Description:

Rome, 48BC. Scene of one of the greatest political battles - and one of the most passionate love affairs - of all time.
