The epic story of two of the world's most famous lovers -- and the forces of politicsé intrigue and ambition that shaped them -- told as only Colleen McCullough can.
Brutus and Cassius are dead at Philippié leaving two Roman men to inherit the world. One is the twenty-year-old Octaviané whose brillianceé subtlety and political cunning give the lie to his smallé sickly appearance. The other is Mark Antonyé a man in his prime -- lustyé Herculeané hedonisticé proven on the battlefields of waré politics and love. At first glanceé it seems no contest: Antony is the certain winner.
But in Alexandria sits Egypt's queené Cleopatraé mourning the death of Julius Caesaré yet utterly focused on attaining world power for her only soné Caesarion. In order to achieve thisé she must seduce and hold in thrall either Octavian or Antony. Her choice is Antonyé whom she sees as consorté war-lord and father of more children. No easy task for Cleopatra! Antony is first and foremost a Romané an obstacle she must overcome before she can launch her bid for dominance.
Antony and Cleopatra compellingly chronicles the events that inexorably led this star-crossed pair to pit themselves against Rome and Octavian.
Passion and poweré love and deathé fortune and fate collide in a mighty conflict that shaped the world for centuries to come.
