Publisher's Summary

It's AD 37. In this story of secrecy and betrayal, which reviewers are calling "a complete page turner", "beautifully written", and "a great read", Caligula Caesar has just become Rome's new master. Senator Titus Carinna, who helped him succeed to the throne, knows the inexperienced young ruler needs a companion he can trust. It's a shame the Senator's older son - Caligula's closest friend - committed suicide after being charged with treason. But that still leaves Marcus, his second son.

Headstrong and hot-tempered, Marcus would rather prove his courage by leading legions against Rome's enemies. Yet when his father calls him home from the frontier, he has no choice but to befriend Caligula -- the man he blames for not saving his brother.

Caught in a web of deceit and treachery reaching from Palatine mansions to the city's grimy, teeming streets, he will uncover a dark secret that threatens his family, the fearless barbarian girl he desires, even his life...and may bring chaos to the young Roman Empire.

Superb! Written and read like a feature film!

I had been looking for a good novel which featured Caligula as a main character, and pleasantly I ended up with getting not only that, but a full featured adventure of epic Roman power! This novel is so intricately well written as well as well told - narrated by a gem of vocal talent Alex Wingfield, who brought Marcus Carinna (alongside the entire cast of characters from Carinna’s first-person point of view) to vivid life. He used a terrifically unique accent/voice for each character, and his range is unmatched! I am very eager now to await “Amber Road,” sequel to this saga which comes out soon/this year. You will not be disappointed by this book, or the delivery of its narrator; transported back into the world of Caligula’s Rome, alive in all its wonder and humanity. Enjoy!
