Having read the first installment in the Emperor series, I looked forward to the next one, and this didn't disappoint me. I will note here that the graphic violence ratchets up a few notches in this second book. The story continues of Julius Caesar and Brutus, and we can already see a fissure in the facade of their friendship as events unfold. Caesar is captured by pirates and held for ransom, then puts down a rebellion in Greece, while Brutus works to establish himself in Rome. The story culminates in the doomed slave rebellion of Spartacus. Mr. Iggulden's straightforward narrative style is hard to resist - so what if some story elements don't jibe with historical fact? The author himself admits in an end note that Sulla actually retired from public life at one point rather than meeting the abrupt end here, but would that have made for high drama? Hey, that's why it's called historical fiction.

I'm not someone obsessed with every historical detail; however, there are some glaring errors in this story, such as in the book Brutus and Julius are the same age; however, in reality Julius is 15 years older than Brutus. Secondly, Servilia was not a prostitute, but she was Julius' mistress until his death.

Mr. Iggulden's style pulls you into his books and into ancient Rome. The chapters jump around from character to character which keeps the story moving and is never mundane. I am now on the third book in the series and I am enjoying it immensely.
