The Emperor's Assassin by Autumn Bardot

Publication Date: October 1, 2019
Flores Publishing
eBook & Paperback; 437 Pages
Genre: Historical Fiction
History paints her as the first female serial killer… Locusta is the daughter of a winemaker in the Roman province of Gaul. She enjoys the indulged childhood of the elite, her concerns only about the day’s amusements. She rides gentle ponies, attends parties, reads Ovid, and learns the herbal arts from her servant. But the day after meeting her betrothed, Locusta discovers the consequences of possessing such dangerous knowledge. Ordered to leave her pastoral life, Locusta is thrust into a world of intrigue, scandal, and murder—where treason lurks behind every corner and defying an emperor means death. Locusta’s life changes forever when a young Emperor Nero requires her herbal expertise. And commands her to be his personal poisoner. Caught in an imperial web, Locusta must embrace her profession or die. Or is there another way out? History paints her as the first female serial killer. Or is she yet another maligned woman in history?

Available on Amazon

My Review

I have read several books by Autumn Bardot and have enjoyed every one of them. Emperor’s Assassin is no different. I have not read anything in the past about Nero’s time, so I found this story to be intriguing and fascinating. Locusta is one historical figure I had never heard of before and I find myself wanting to know more about her. 

I am giving Emperor’s Assassin four stars. Historical fiction readers will not want to miss this one. I thought it was great. 

I received this book from the publisher. This review is 100% my own honest opinion.
