This is the third book in the "Masters of Rome" series, and it's just as delicious as the first two. The characters are deep, moving and memorable. As with the other books in this series, the story includes plenty of human emotion, politics, sex, complex relationships, battlefield drama and multiple plots set in a time when modern means of communication had not yet developed. It's interesting to see how lives were dictated each day without the element of the Internet, TV, radio or newspapers. While this book contains a thorough introduction to the first two books in the series, I highly recommend that "The First Man in Rome" and "The Grass Crown" are read before reading this one. Feel free to email with any questions. ~LeAnn

This was an excellent book - the first by McCullough that I've read. Although there are two in this Rome series prior to this one, I was comfortable starting with this book (and skipping the other two on very, very early Rome) as the author has an excellent summary at the beginning of the book on the historical events of the previous two novels. I can't wait to read the final two in the series!
