9781519370334: Octavian: Rise to Power: The Early Years of Caesar Augustus

"Caesar Augustus wasn't always powerful. First he was Octavian." Author and historian Patrick J. Parrelli creates a spellbinding, historically exacting epic of creative nonfiction in Octavian, Rise to Power. An adventurous undertaking, this meticulously researched historical novel is cross-referenced with the ancient writings of Appian, Suetonius, Plutarch, and Dio. It chronicles the story of Julius Caesar's eighteen-year-old great-nephew Octavian's rise to power. 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 Mark Antony, Cleopatra, Cicero, Marcus Brutus, Cassius, Marcus Agrippa, Pompey, and Herod the Great, this book also details with in-depth insight the military battles of Mutina, Philippi, Perusia, Naulochus, and Actium, as well as the Treaties of Brundisium, Misenum, and Tarentum. It serves as possibly the most readable narrative to unravel Octavian's complex story of how he came to be Rome's first emperor in 27 BC and took the name Caesar Augustus. For a work of this magnitude, it is a light read, designed to entertain while it educates. The reader will come away with an in-depth knowledge of this most pivotal time period in the history of Ancient Rome, from 44 BC to 27 BC.

About the Author:

Patrick Parrelli attended the Boston Latin High School where part of the daily curriculum was to translate the Latin works of Julius Caesar, Cicero, and others. He later graduated from Northeastern University. Pat and his wife, Joyce, live in Atlanta, Georgia.

Review:

A thriller for history buffs, this lengthy novel speeds through the rise of the Roman Empire. How do you become the most powerful man on Earth? Don't make mistakes. Parrelli's portrayal of the meteoric rise of Octavian (later becomes Augustus Caesar) shows how few he made. His enemies met swift ends as soon as politics allowed. With all his resounding successes, Octavian seems almost inhuman--similar to Shakespeare's portrait of him in Antony and Cleopatra. Parrelli's fidelity to the Roman historians makes for a remarkably accurate portrait of the actual events in Octavian's life.  KIRKUS INDIE
