In the blockbuster tradition of The First Man in Rome, Colleen Mccullough’s monumental Masters of Rome series continues.

The man behind the legend … the women behind the man

Villain or hero? Debated for centuries, the volcanic soul of Julius Caesar comes dramatically to life in this masterpiece of historical fiction from the #1 bestselling author of The Thorn Birds.

In this sweeping saga, McCullough traces Caesar’s rise to prominence in his world, beginning with his triumphant entry into a new battlefield—the Roman Forum, where wars are waged with words and schemes, and where today’s ally may be tomorrow’s foe. Caesar’s victories are not limited to the political arena, however; he also conquers Rome’s noblewomen, including the powerful and vindictive Servilia, mother of a youth called Brutus. Yet the one thing he never gives to any of the women who love him or want him is himself—to Caesar, love is just another weapon in his political arsenal.

Epic in scope, razor-sharp in detail, Caesar’s Women paints an indelible portrait of a man willing to seize any means of moving toward his ultimate goal: to be the greatest of all Rome’s First Men, the leader of a world that echoes our own too closely for comfort.

    " The number of characters can get overwhelming, but the story is fascinating--and sometimes the women are more interesting than the men. "

    " The best historical fiction treatment of the turbulent times from the life of Sulla to the ascension of Octavius. One of the best historical fiction series ever, but be prepared to read all of the books once you start, because you won't be able to put them down. "

    " This is the first of Colleen McCullough Roman series I've been able to finish. But oh how fascinating it was. The names are so closely linked that keeping all the characters straight caused me much frustration. My son, who's read them all, says I need to read them with a chart of names in front of me. Perhaps.... I just may have to follow with the next in the series to see what Caesar does next on his path to immortality. "
