Review

Advance praise for "The Blood of the Gods"
"The seasoned Iggulden adeptly brings all the intrigue and action of the era vividly to life, maintaining a historically authentic backdrop as he fictionalizes Octavian's evolution from callow youth to Augustus, the bold and fearless architect of a new chapter in Roman history."--"Booklist"
"Iggulden does fine work in his deft character studies of the principals and their various motives for alternately stirring up civil war or defending a new empire in the borning. . . . With such strong and willful people, you just know a clash is inevitable--and the best parts of this good novel are those of fierce battles such as Philippi, in scenes of 'oil and splinters and floating bodies.' Well-paced and well-written . . . better than much historical fiction about the ancient world."--"Kirkus Reviews"
"Iggulden plunges you into the full fury of the action and leaves you gasping for more."--"The Northern Echo" (UK)
"[A] clever and convincing narrative."--"The Sunday Times" (UK)
Praise for Conn Iggulden's Empire series
"Dramatic historical fiction to keep adults turning pages like enthralled kids . . . [Iggulden] is a grand storyteller. . . . A spirited, entertaining read."--"USA Today"
"Exhilarating . . . Words like 'brilliant, ' 'sumptuous' and 'enchanting' jostle to be used, but scarcely convey the way Iggulden brings the schoolbook tale to life, or the compelling depictions of battle, treachery and everyday detail in a precarious world well lost but vividly re-created."--"Los Angeles Times"
"What Robert Graves did for Claudius, Conn Iggulden now does for the most famous Roman emperor of them all--Julius Caesar."--William Bernhardt, author of "Criminal Intent"
"[Iggulden] excels at describing battle scenes both small-scale and epic."--"The Seattle Times"
"Utterly marvelous . . . Solid research and a real knack for character development bring [Juliu
