Rome 44 BC. 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. Augustus: Son of Caesar is the sequel to the bestselling historical novel Augustus: Son of Rome. Richard Foreman again assembles a cast of characters from history to produce a story full of insight, action and wit. A must-read for fans of Conn Iggulden, Simon Scarrow, Ben Kane and Plutarch. Richard Foreman's books have been widely praised. 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.
