(A book in the Sword of Rome series)
A Novella by

Ravenna, 50BC.

Caesar's forces stand upon the borders of Gaul and Italy. The prospect of a civil war grows ever likelier each day.

But for the veteran soldier Lucius Oppius, this may be one conflict too far.

With a new lover, he is tempted to end his long military career - and start a new life.

But can any man truly be free of his past and who he is?

In Rome, Cicero attempts to secure a peace. Against him, a powerful faction in the Senate is bent upon destroying Caesar, for personal and political reasons.

War hinges upon the will of Pompey, the only man capable of stopping Caesar.

Caesar stands upon the banks of the Rubicon, an enemy of the state. The die is cast. An empire will now be at war, spearheaded by the two great men of the age.

And Lucius Oppius will be caught in the middle, unable to escape his fate.

Sword of Rome: Rubicon is a gripping novella, encompassing war, politics and the tragedy and duty of a soldier.

An exclusive extract from Augustus: Son of Caesar (the sequel to the best-seller Augustus: Son of Rome) can be found at the end of this story.

The Sword of Rome series brings together history and adventure in stories which will appeal to fans of Simon Scarrow, Conn Iggulden and Steven Saylor.

Praise for Augustus: Son of Rome

'Augustus: Son of Rome forges action and adventure with politics and philosophy. This superb story is drenched in both blood and wisdom - and puts Foreman on the map as the coming man of historical fiction.' - Saul David, author of the Zulu Hart series)

Praise for Raffles: The Complete Innings

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

Praise for A Hero of Our Time

'An elegant novel which is awash with both hope and tragedy. A Hero of Our Time is a must read for anyone interested in WWII or 19th Century Russian Literature.' - Nigel Jones, author of Countdown To Valkyrie

Praise for Warsaw

'Warsaw is a work of power. It has the authentic feeling that pulses from an important book. The meticulous research and psychological insights light up one of the most ghastly episodes in the history of man's inhumanity to man. - Patrick Bishop, author of Fighter Boys and A Good War.

Richard Foreman is the author of numerous bestselling kindle books, including Augustus: Son of Rome and the Raffles series of historical crime novellas. He is also the author of A Hero of Our Time, a literary novel set during the end of the Second World War. He lives in London.
