Pages: 378

Humphry Knipe serves up the Nero saga in novel format with the period’s obsession with astrology as its theme. Nero and his contemporaries used horoscopes not as entertainment but as serious guides to the future. When the exact date and time of Nero’s death was leaked to his enemies it demoralized his friends -- even his own bodyguards were convinced he was doomed. All this told to us by the ex-slave who helped his singing emperor face the final curtain. “Fans of astrology will delight in this compelling narrative, as will the lover of historical novels” – James Herschel Holden A History of Horoscopic Astrology.
