Simon Turney con Caligula (The Damned Emperors)

Críticas Evocative, researched to the inch and 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)Simon Turney brings an authentic, intriguing - and above all, fresh - new eye to one of the best-known names in the Roman world. Caligula has long been reviled as a weak, petty tyrant. In Turney's capable hands, we see the human behind the myth: a complex man brought down by the exigencies of the office, but who could, with more luck, have been one of the great Emperors of history. This is a cracking book, alive with the sights and sounds of an ancient Rome brought vividly to life by one of the rising stars of the genre. I read it in one sitting, and you can't say better than that (Manda Scott, author of the Boudica 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)An inspired new take on Caligula that combines the pace of a thriller with the grand sweep of a tragedy - a gripping read that echoes in the memory long after the last page is turned (Ruth Downie, author of the Medicus series)A harrowing and visceral tale that draws you into the pulsing heart of Ancient Rome (Gordon Doherty, author of the Legionary series)In this compelling ancient-world saga, Turney skilfully reimagines the life of history's most reviled emperor. Told from the eyes of Caligula's clever and devoted sister, it's a fascinating, fast-paced, page-turner! (Stephanie Dray, NYT bestselling author of LILY OF THE NILE)Caligula as you've never seen him before! In this exciting new tale from Simon Turney, the much-maligned emperor of Rome steps forward not as a maddened psychopath, but as a brave and tormented young man struggling to navigate the snake-pit that is his own Imperial family. A powerfully moving read from one of the best ancient world authors in the business (Kate Quinn, USA today bestselling author of THE ALICE NETWORK and MISTRESS OF ROME)A close and intimate portrait of a young man's rise to power in a murderously dangerous society, and his vertiginous descent into vindictive rage and excess. Compelling, claustrophobic, and utterly convincing, this is a story of gilded lives on the edge of a precipice (Ian Ross, author of WAR AT THE EDGE OF THE WORLD)Brilliant . . . a gripping gallop of a read, impeccably researched, beautifully written, impossible to put down (Angus Donald, author of the Outlaw Chronicles)This exuberant take on one of the great monsters of history is exhilarating in its revisionist energy; Simon Turney is a truly cherishable talent (Barry Forshaw) Reseña del editor 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 Caligula 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 . . . Ver Descripción del producto
