‘A brilliant story – I wish I’d written it. A novel of vivid characters, stunning action and unrelenting pace. It really is a terrific read.’

‘The descriptions of combat in the circus, slaves in revolt, skirmishes in Greece, amputations and street fighting are all convincing.’

‘A rich and compelling novel that draws the reader into an extraordinary time and the life of an extraordinary man.’

5.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't put it down! 21 Nov 2011
These fictional books are based on the life of Julius Caesar. I first started reading The Gates of Rome as part of a book club I belong to (not a high-brow one I can assure you!) and had to go on and read the other 3 books straight after as I loved it so much. It's a great insight into his early life and how he became the ruler of Rome, carrying on to his eventual death. I found it a great read and very informative as I have to confess I didn't know a huge amount about Julius Caesar before reading these.
