New York Times bestselling author

The New York Times bestselling and legendary author of Helen of Troy and Elizabeth I now turns her gaze on Emperor Nero, one of the most notorious and misunderstood figures in history.

In the Roman Empire no one is safe from the sting of betrayal: man, woman – or child. As a boy, Nero's royal heritage becomes a threat to his very life, first when the mad emperor Caligula tries to drown him, then when his great aunt attempts to secure her own son's inheritance. Faced with shocking acts of treachery, young Nero is dealt a harsh lesson – it is better to be cruel than dead. While Nero idealises the artistic and athletic principles of Greece, his very survival rests on his ability to navigate the sea of vipers that is Rome. Most lethal of all is his own mother, Agrippina, whose only goal is to control the empire. But as her machinations earn her son a title he is both tempted and terrified to assume, Nero's determination to escape her thrall will shape him into the man he was fated to become – an Emperor who became legendary.

'Carefully researched, vivid, and passionately told, this is the story of a fascinating new Nero, a sympathetic, artistic and conflicted soul struggling to navigate the vicious waters of Roman politics.'
Madeline Miller, Orange Prize-winning author of The Song of Achilles
