    Colleen McCullough Doctor of Neurophysiology(Author)
The third novel in the epic Masters of Rome series.

Fortune's Favourites witnesses the power, mastery and cunning of two enigmatic rulers of Rome - Sulla, returning from exile, and the 22-year-old Pompey, who designates himself Magnus 'the Great'. And in the background is the young soldier, Caesar, who begins to show the expert qualities that will one day culminate in him becoming an unparalleled leader of ancient Rome. And at the heart of this sumptuous tale is the unforgettable story of Spartacus and his doomed slave revolt - the true story, as no modern reader has ever before encountered it.

"McCullough spins a stupendous tale of murderous ambition, guile, assassination, tragedy, love and lust...a magnificent tour de force" (Publishers Weekly)

  • By Mr Particular on 16 March 2017

    Enthralling, brilliantly written and meticulously researched. Historically accurate (as far as is possible when even the ancient authorities disagree or are unbelievable) in both the minutiae of Roman life and customs, and of the Machiavellian politics of Rome (Machiavelli was a rank amateur compared with some Romans (of all sexes).This is only one of the whole series, that I haven't yet finished (out of sequence). In a couple of years I'll enjoy re-reading them all in chronological order.An wonderful way to absorbing Roman History from the later Republic through to the ascent of 'Augustus', the first Emperor and Gaius Julius Caesar's heir and (great?) nephew Octavianus (Octavian).
