This is Rome’s most infamous emperor as you’ve never seen him: a loving brother, reluctant ruler and tortured soul. Narrated by his youngest sister Julia Livilla who was ultimately banished by him, Caligula takes the reader through Caligula’s reign and beyond, packed with twists and turns, intrigue, conspiracies and violence – and attempts to re-define what Roman means forever.
The first in the Damned Emperors series by SJA Turney.
Evocative, researched to the inch and a truly different take on one of history's villains.
