Damned Emperors

A new series of novels released by Orion, the Damned Emperors is a series of standalone novelised biographies of those Roman emperors who suffered Damnatio Memoriae, their names stricken from history.


Everyone knows his name. Everyone thinks they know his story.

Rome 37AD. The emperor is dying. No-one knows how long he has left. The power struggle has begun.

When the ailing Tiberius thrusts Caligula’s family into the imperial succession in a bid to restore order, he will change the fate of the empire and create one of history’s most infamous tyrants, Caligula.
But was he really a monster?

Forget everything you think you know. Let Livilla, Caligula’s youngest sister and confidante, tell you what really happened. How her quiet, caring brother became the most powerful man on earth. And how, with lies, murder and betrayal, Rome was changed for ever . . .

‘An engrossing new spin on a well-known tale’ Antonia SeniorThe Times
Caligula as you’ve never seen him before! A powerfully moving read from one of the best ancient world authors in the business‘ Kate Quinn, author of The Alice Network 

Out now in Hardback, eBook and Audio editions. Paperback release due November 15th 2018
