Emperor: The Death of Kingsby Conn Iggulden
Synopses & Reviews
The acclaimed author of Emperor: The Gates of Rome returns to the extraordinary life of Julius Caesar in a new novel that takes us further down the path to glory . . . as Caesar comes into his own as a man, warrior, senator, husband, and leader.
In a sparsely settles region of North Africa, a band of disheveled soldiers turn their eyes toward one man among them: their leader, Julius Caesar. The soldiers are Roman legionaries. And their quarry is a band of pirates who dared to kidnap Julius Caesar for ransom. Now, as Caesar exacts his revenge and builds a legend far from Rome, his friend Marcus Brutus is fighting battles of another sort, rising to power in the wake of the assassination of a dictator. Once Brutus and Caesar were as close as brothers, devoted to the same ideals and attracted to the same forbidden women. Now they will be united again by a shock wave from the north, where a gladiator named Spartacus is building an army of seventy thousand slavesto fight a cataclysmic battle against Rome itself.
Rich with the feel of the ancient world and filled with political and sexual intrigue, this follow-up to "Emperor: The Gates of Rome" takes readers on a breathtaking journey from the grandeur of Rome itself to the savagery of its most far-flung provinces.
