May well be the best book in the series.-- "Sunday Times (London)"
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"
Yon Cassius has a lean and hungry look-and the rest of the players in Iggulden's spirited novel of ancient Rome are pretty tough, too...Well-paced and well-written.-- "Kirkus Reviews"
Dramatic historical fiction to keep adults turning pages like enthralled kids...[Iggulden] is a grand storyteller...A spirited, entertaining read.-- "USA Today, praise for the series"
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, praise for the series"
[Iggulden's] expert plotting, supple prose, and fast-paced action will keep readers riveted.-- "Publishers Weekly, praise for the series"
