Mark Antony, famous warrior and legendary lover, expects that he will be Julius Caesar's successor. But when Caesar is murdered, his eighteen-year-old nephew, Octavian, is named as his heir. No one, least of all Antony, expects Octavian to last; but his youth and slight frame conceal a remarkable determination and a sharp strategic mind. Under Octavian's rule, the empire is divided, with Antony responsible for the fabulously rich East. There he meets Cleopatra, who is still mourning Caesar, her lover and the father of her only son. Despite his marriage to Octavian's sister, Antony is fascinated by the Egyptian queen. Drawn together by grief, ambition, passion, and politics, they begin a very public love affair, and the tension between Antony and Octavian, already simmering, soon threatens to erupt into war.… (més)

A largely satisfying conclusion to McCullough's phenomenal historical fiction series, Masters of Rome, all of which are immensely educational and a true joy. I recommend them as often as I can. This last focuses on the post-civil-war triumvirate of Octavian, Mark Antony (+Cleopatra) and (the barely-mentioned) Lepidus. Well done, and thank you, Ms. McCullough! ( )

Excellent portrayal of Mark Anthony and why he eventually lost to Octavian (Augustus Caesar) even though he started out with all the advantages. I do wonder if she is right that Cleopatra's meddling with Mark Anthony was the cause of his downfall. I think irregardless of Cleopatra Octavian was so superior in strategy that he eventually would have won anyway. I didfeel sorry for Caesarion, the child of Julius Caesar, who was executed by Octavian. ( )

El ultimo libro de la saga, pese a que la escritora anuncio en el penúltimo que ese seria el final, mas tarde no fue así. Quizás para mi el mas flojo de todos, ya sin Cesar, nada es lo mismo.
Centrado en la relación manipuladora de Cleopatra sobre Marco Antonio y como esta provoca la llegada al poder de Octavio Cesar Augusto, hijo adoptivo de Cayo Julio Cesar. ( )

This is the first book I have read of this series. The author is well known for writing well-researched books, and this comes out in this case. At times one is a bit overwhelmed with the amount of detail.
However, I found that I got to know a lot more about the character of a number of people that to date I knew little more than by name and place in history: Octavian, Mark Antony, Cleopatra, Agrippa, Octavia, and Herod as well also Caesarion. Many more less familiar people are also given space to develop.
Most come across as normal human beings, some good, some bad. The situation of Caesarion was most interesting, although I suspect this is where most of the fiction occurs. ( )

Oh. My. Goodnes. What a slog! I never once had any compassion or connection to a single character in this story, least of all Antony or Cleopatra. The only sympathetic character was Octavia. And the dozens of name for each character! And sooooo many characters!

The story is filled with interesting historical detail, almost to distraction at times. This is my first novel by Colleen McCullough, and I don't know if I'll read another. ( )
