Very Entertaining!

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.

Very Bad History

What would have made EMPEROR: The Death of Kings, Book 2 (Unabridged) better?

This is a good story the only problem is that the history is so bad it makes the book annoying. If you know nothing of Roman history the story is very good but if you know anything about Roman history the book is basically unreadable.

Has EMPEROR: The Death of Kings, Book 2 (Unabridged) turned you off from other books in this genre?
