Eagles Rising.

Books 1 & 2 in bestselling author Richard Foreman's epic Augustus series are now available in this must-have collective edition.


'Augustus: Son of Rome' tells the story of the assassination of Julius Caesar and the rise of his heir, Gaius Octavius, as he journeys to Rome from Apollonia. We see a boy grow into a man as Octavius develops the moral courage, intelligence and ruthlessness that will finally see him become Augustus, Emperor of Rome.

The pen and sword will be employed to defeat his enemies and Octavius will earn the name of "Caesar".

Yet Rome will exact its price - and triumph will be accompanied by tragedy.

Julius Caesar, Cicero, Cleopatra, Mark Antony, Brutus and Marcus Agrippa all feature in this epic adventure, which will appeal to fans of Shakespeare, Plutarch and Conn Iggulden alike.


Caesar is dead - murdered by Marcus Brutus and his fellow conspirators.

Mark Antony now holds power in Rome, through his position as consul and the legions under his command.

Brutus has fled the capital, along with Cassius Longinus. Cicero is a shadow of the force he once was.

The Senate are unable or unwilling to oppose Antony but Octavius, Caesar's heir, is daring to defy Rome's new dictator.

Octavius - along with Marcus Agrippa and the centurion Lucius Oppius - must first negotiate the treacherous politics of the capital and then recruit an army, in order to defeat their enemies.

War is inevitable. The fate of Rome will be decided on the battlefield rather than in the Forum.

Caesar is dead. Long live Caesar.

Recommended for fans of Conn Iggulden, Ben Kane and Simon Scarrow.

Praise for Spies of Rome: Blood & Honour

"An arresting opening that leads into a thoroughly gripping story.

A must read for fans of Steven Saylor." Peter Tonkin, author of 'The Ides'.

Praise for 'Raffles: The Complete Innings':

'Classy, humorous and surprisingly touching tales of cricket, friendship and crime - David Blackburn, The Spectator.

Praise for 'Band of Brothers: Complete Campaigns':
