Caligula by Simon Turney

Caligula: The Damned Emperors Book 1 by Simon Turney

‘An engrossing new spin on a well-known tale’ Antonia SeniorThe Times
Caligula as you’ve never seen him before! A powerfully moving read from one of the best ancient world authors in the business‘ Kate Quinn, author of The Alice Network

Everyone knows his name. Everyone thinks they know his story.

Rome 37AD. The emperor is dying. No-one knows how long he has left. The power struggle has begun.

When the ailing Tiberius thrusts Caligula’s family into the imperial succession in a bid to restore order, he will change the fate of the empire and create one of history’s most infamous tyrants, Caligula.
But was he really a monster?

Forget everything you think you know. Let Livilla, Caligula’s youngest sister and confidante, tell you what really happened. How her quiet, caring brother became the most powerful man on earth. And how, with lies, murder and betrayal, Rome was changed for ever . . .

A truly different take on one of history’s villains . . . All through this I am seeing Al Pacino in The Godfather, slowly stained darker and darker by power and blood’ Robert Low, author of The Oathsworn series
Enthralling and original, brutal and lyrical by turns. With powerful imagery and carefully considered history Simon Turney provides a credible alternative to the Caligula myth that will have the reader questioning everything they believe they know about the period‘ Anthony Riches, author of the Empire series
