First in a new series as Colleen McCullough sweeps the reader into the pageantry, passion, splendour and tormented upheaval of ancient Rome.
Here are the stories of Marius, wealthy but lowborn, and Sulla, penniless though aristocratic and debauched - men of vision whose ambitions will lay the foundations of the most awesome empire ever known. Great events and mortal frailties, a vast and vivid cast of unforgettable men and women, kings, commoners, mistresses, lovers, soldiers and senators are woven effortlessly into a rich, densely embroidered tapestry and bring a remarkable era to magnificent life.
