The epic new novel in Conn Iggulden’s bestselling EMPEROR series,
featuring a new short story by the author. Julius Caesar has been
assassinated. A nation is in mourning. Revenge will be bloody.
Rome’s great hero Julius Caesar has been brutally murdered by his
most trusted allies. While these self-appointed Liberatores seek
refuge in the senate, they have underestimated one man: Caesar’s
adopted son Octavian, a man whose name will echo through history as
Augustus Caesar. Uniting with his great rival Mark Antony, Octavian
will stop at nothing to seek retribution from the traitors and
avenge his father’s death. His greatest hatred is reserved for
Brutus, Caesar’s childhood friend and greatest ally, now leader of
the conspirators. As the people take to the streets of Rome, the
Liberatores must face their fate. Some flee the city; others will
not escape mob justice. Not a single one will die a natural death.
And the reckoning will come for Brutus on the sweeping battlefield
