#5 Battle of Philippi - 42 BC (The Octavian Chronicles): Octavian: Rise to Power
Author and historian Patrick J. Parrelli creates a spellbinding, historically exacting work of creative nonfiction in the twelve Octavian Chronicles.
An adventurous undertaking, this meticulously researched epic is cross referenced with the ancient writings of Appian, Suetonius, Plutarch, and Dio. After Caesar is assassinated in 44 BC and Octavian learns that Caesar adopted him as his son in his will, he sets out on a path of vengeance that does not end until he takes his place.
With engaging subplots that chronicle key figures like Antony, Cleopatra, Cicero, Brutus, Cassius, Agrippa, and Herod the Great, these twelve chronicles detail with in depth insight the military battles of Mutina, Philippi, Perusia, Naulochus, and Actium, serving as possibly the most readable narrative to unravel the complex story of how Octavian came to be Caesar Augustus, Romes first emperor.
Also available in a single eBook, The Octavian Chronicles, that combines the twelve individual Chronicles.
