Product Description

“A thriller for history buffs, the exciting, authentic plot will keep the pages turning.” Kirkus Indie

In 'The Octavian Chronicles', author and historian Patrick J. Parrelli combines his twelve individual eBook Chronicles into a single volume to create a spellbinding, historically exacting work of creative nonfiction that tells the story of the 'Rise to Power' of Octavian, the great-nephew of Julius Caesar. 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 doesn’t end until he takes his place. With engaging subplots that chronicle key figures like Antony, Cleopatra, Cicero, Brutus, Cassius, Agrippa, Sextus Pompey, and Herod the Great, this historical epic also details with in-depth insight the military battles of Mutina, Philippi, Perusia, Naulochus, and Actium and serves as possibly the most readable narrative to unravel the complex story of how Octavian came to be Caesar Augustus, Rome’s first emperor.

The titles of the individual eBook Chronicles are; Assassination - 44 BC; Cicero - 44 BC; Battle of Mutina - 43 BC; Second Triumvirate - 43 BC; Battle of Philippi - 42 BC; Battle of Perusia - 41 BC; Treaty of Brundisium - 40 BC; Treaty of Misenum - 39 BC; Battle of Naulochus - 36 BC; Donations of Alexandria - 34 BC; Battle of Actium - 31 BC; Suicide - 30 BC.
