#NewRelease — Caligula by Simon Turney #AncientRome #HistoricalFiction @SJATurney


By Simon Turney

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 . . .

  1. Congratulations on your new release!

  2. Your book sounds intriguing, Simon. I know history is always written by the victors, but even so, I'd thought Caligula's poor reputation was firmly established. I'm looking forward to reading your book showing another aspect of him.

  3. Now that is what I call a book. I told my daughter that this is the one I want for Christmas.

  4. Congratulations on your new release.


See you on your next coffee break!
