With Mark Anthony and Lepidus amongst his allies, Roman Consul Octavian looks to avenge the murder of his adopted father, Julius Caesar.
Caesar is dead. Revenge has armed his hand. His name is Octavian.
A gripping historical adventure. Perfect for fans of Simon Scarrow and Ben Kane.
Despite his young age, Octavian is already a consul. His position is not yet consolidated enough for him to carry out his plans of revenge upon the murderers of his beloved adoptive father Julius Caesar, though – and no courtroom can quench his thirst for justice.
He makes powerful allies in Mark Antony and Lepidus, with whom he forms a triumvirate, and unleashes upon the streets of Rome a reign of terror, turning the screws until the tension is such that it can find release only upon the battlefield. And he doesn't have to wait long: soon two great armies, led by four renowned commanders, stand ready to clash in Macedonia, far from the city of Rome and its corruption. One one side, Brutus and Cassius – on the other, Octavian and Mark Antony. It is the battle of Philippi, one of the most famous in Roman history. Is this where Caesar's murder will finally be avenged?
