The Shards of Heaven

Michael Livingston’s Shards of Heaven epic historical fantasy series reveals the secret magic hidden within the ancient world and of the great war that may alter the fate of humanity.

Julius Caesar is dead. Octavian, Caesar’s ambitious great-nephew and adopted son, vies with Marc Antony and Cleopatra for control of Caesar’s legacy. But Juba, Numidian prince and adopted brother of Octavian, threaten them all. He has embarked on a ruthless quest for the Shards of Heaven, lost treasures said to possess the very power of the gods—or the one God. Driven by vengeance, Juba will stop at nothing to obtain the other Shards, even if it means burning the entire world to the ground.

“Livingston has spiced real history with a compelling dose of fantasy! Wonderfully imaginative and beautifully told.” —New York Times bestselling author Bernard Cornwell
