Summary
While Nero idealizes the artistic and athletic principles of Greece, his very survival rests on his ability to navigate the sea of vipers that is Rome. The most lethal of all is his own mother, a cold-blooded woman whose singular goal is to control the empire. With cunning and poison, the obstacles fall one by one. But as Agrippina's machinations earn her son a title he is both tempted and terrified to assume, Nero's determination to escape her thrall will shape him into the man he was fated to become, an Emperor who became legendary

Summary
Lucius Domitius Ahenobarbus was born to rule. At least, that's what his mother Agrippina (a woman with a penchant for poisoning her husbands) believes. An intelligent, sensitive boy who loves music and chariot races , Lucius can only be an improvement over his uncle, Caligula. Even as he benefits from Agrippina's scheming, Lucius strives to break free of his family's influence; by age 16, he's Emperor Nero. However, he quickly discovers that staying in power requires a certain amount of ruthlessness. This unusual coming-of-age story that imagines the life of a notorious ruler. -- Description by Gillian Speace
