Excellent historical fiction, book two in the series. Brings the Roman Empire alive. Start with book one and then go on to the next two.

Very well written. I am now a fan of Conn. The pages turn so freely and you really do feel like you know the life of the upstart Caius.

It's pretty enjoyable, a bit lengthy but any book involving Roman politics should be. It's got some good action and it's an interesting view of historical fiction.

Julius Caesar lived in interesting times and he is still a young man at the end of this novel. Book 1 in this series was good, like a scoop of chocolate icecream. Book 2 is even better, like nutella on my icecream. In Book 2, the author honed his story-telling ability to a riveting point, keeping me up far too late on a work night traipsing around with Caesar. I found myself reading 100-page chunks of this book at a time. Images from this book have stuck with me, such as Julius threatening the pirate captain, the formation of the Tenth legion after they suffered their punishment for cowardice in battle, his reunion with his wife Cornelia, Brutuss blossoming relationship with his mother. I loved the juxtapositioning of Rome, a civilized, beautiful city, run by the shadowy side of politics versus the deadly open-field warfare in Greece.
