    Summary

    With his triumvirate on his brink of collapse, Gaul nowhere near pacified, and beset by political enemies, the absolute last gift that Caesar wants from his ex-mistress is an over-familiar legate with an unsavoury reputation interfering in his battle plans. He'll pile on one impossible task after another and see just how far Marcus Antonius is willing to go to become heir to the First Man in Rome.

    Summary

    Agrippa has been dead for a year, she is growing used to being seen as a beautiful and influential widow – the first of all women in Rome - and yet to her father she thinks she’ll always be seen as a disobedient little girl who could never once sit quietly enough or curtsy low enough or make herself a perfect goddess adored by all. She takes a long sip of her wine, puts on her most insincere smile and answers, “am I not the perfect daughter, father?”

    Summary

    They say, then and later, that madness and magic come in the month of Boedromion. The sea cooks and boils. The air singes and curls. In the nights, gods walk the earth beside men. The fair-haired goddess, laughter-loving Aphrodite, comes to her then, sitting in the courtyard, weaving with her hands as her mind flies free.

    Summary

    My subject in this tale is the life of Alexander the King. The career of this man embraced such a multitude of events that my preamble shall consist of nothing more than this one plea: if I do not record all his most celebrated achievements that you not regard this as a fault. Plutarch, Life of Alexander

    Alexander at the tomb of Achilles: Oh fortunate youth, to have found Homer as the herald of your glory! Cicero, Pro Archia

    With love and undying fame at stake, Alexander takes matters into his own hands.
