Having previously read Conn Iggulden’s brilliant 5 book series on Genghis Khan I had high expectations of the Emperor series. I wasn’t disappointed! If you have a passion for historical fiction and ancient history, this is for you. Meticulously researched fact and cleverly wrought fiction go hand in glove with Mr Iggulden’s books. Emperor is quite simply Julius Cesar bought to life. Mind you, it will have you reaching for Wikipedia when you’ve finished! A fabulous read.
