I thought I knew the story of Marc Antony having read more than one book on Rome during the late period of the Republic, not to mention watching numerous movies and mini series. I was wrong. Antonius Son of Rome by Brook Allen, the first entry of a planned trilogy, introduces us to the preteen Marcus Antonius of noble birth who dreams of a glorious military career like that of his illustrious distant cousin Gaius Julius Caesar.
