PART OF THE ACCLAIMED MASTERS OF ROME SERIES
This is the third in McCullough's six-novel series on Ancient Rome. Sulla returns from exile and the 22-year-old Pompey names himself Magnus "the Great". The young Julius Caesar moves centre-stage as he battles for supremacy in this saga of political conflict, love and war.
“McCullough spins a stupendous tale of murderous ambition, guile, assassination, tragedy, love and lust...a magnificent tour de force.”
