Description

From the author of the bestselling The Dangerous Book for Boys
 
The year is 53 B.C. Julius Caesar approaches his final destiny—a destiny that will be decided not by legions but by his friend Brutus and a bewitching Egyptian queen named Cleopatra. . . .

Fresh from victory in Gaul, Julius Caesar leads his battle-hardened legions across the Rubicon.The armies of Rome will face each other at last in civil war, led by the two greatest generals ever to walk the seven hills. From the spectacles of the arena to the whispered lies of conspirators, author Conn Iggulden brings to life a world marked by fierce loyalty and bitter betrayal, with dark events shrouded in noble ideals.
