This is my review of the book Emperor – The death of kings by Conn Iggulden which I read recently. This is the second book in the series of four about the life and times of Julius Caesar. As a young officer in the army he is serving on board a war galley. The ship is captured by pirates is captured and he is abandoned on the North African coast. The families are asked for a ransom to get them back, which they pay. Julius vows to get revenge and the money back so he gathers a legion of men powerful enough to gain vengeance on his captors and to suppress an uprising in Greece, he returns to Rome a hero.
At the moment of his triumph, Julius finds he must fight again. A savage rebellion threatens the city, led by a gladiator named Spartacus…
This was a good page turner of a book and really wet my appetite for the next book in the series, which I will hopefully read soon. I will record this as book 21 week 21 fiction 19 (audio books 3) non fiction 2
