This is the second book in a four part series following the life and times of Julius Caesar and his contemporarys, such as Brutus and Pompeii.
Conn Iggulden does a great job of bringing the time period to life. He may take a lot of liberties with the historical facts, but it is always intended to drive the story on in a more interesting way. This is historical fiction after all!
Emperor: The Death of Kings takes place at the beginning of Caesars career and Political life. I found it more interesting than the first book because of the political intrigue involved.
The narrator does a great job of bringing the characters voices to life. Some may find his use of English accents a little strange, but nevertheless it works.
