An excellent read,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Death of Kings (Emperor Series) (Hardcover)
Whilst Conn Iggulden may not be a classic writer, this book is definitely in the "difficult to put down" category. The author admits to taking liberties with some of what is known of Caesar's life, and fills in the gaps with imaginative "so what if . . . " tales. If you want the true documented history of Caesar, then this is not for you. But if you like an all-action gripping yarn type book then this is an excellent read, as was the first in the series.
