Review The story of the aftermath of the assassination of Julius Caesar in the Theatre of Pompey in 44BC is a familiar one, possibly the most famous of all Roman tales thanks to Shakespeare and Hollywood. This is especially true of Octavian, renamed Julius Caesar in the days following the killing. We are first introduced to Octavian and his brave and loyal friends Maecenas and Agrippa on leave in Greece. Their behaviour, which speaks large of bravery, honour and drunkenness, immediately has to readjust itself as Octavian learns of events in Rome. He is transformed into a young man with a mission.

Emperor is an internationally acclaimed historical five-novel series by British author Conn Iggulden about the life of Roman statesman and general Gaius Julius Caesar. The series was well received by many critics, but also drew comment that Iggulden sometimes changed historical facts either through ignorance or in order to create a more thrilling narrative. This is partly acknowledged by Iggulden, and noted at the end of every novel. The most notable change in the main plot features Caesar and Brutus growing up as childhood friends Brutus was in reality 15 years younger than Caesar and sometimes rumoured to be his son, though this is unlikely. This gives the series some complexities similar to the movie , in which two boys who grow up together are shaped by their differences, culminating in diverging destinies on the Ides of March. The book series is being adapted into a movie trilogy to be directed by Burr Steers.

My review of Emperor: The Blood of the Gods is available on writing. Ten years after the publication of the first book in his Emperor series, Emperor: The Gates of Rome and eight years after the fourth instalment appeared, bestselling author Conn Iggulden has completed the cycle with a much anticipated fifth book called Emperor: The Blood of Gods. What follows is a compelling tale of bloody retribution, shrewd political manoeuvring and epic combat. Few dare oppose them but those who do prove to be powerful enemies. The young man forms an alliance of convenience with his old rival, master orator Marc Antony, once a staunch ally of the murdered emperor. But victory is by no means certain, and they meet fierce resistance from Brutus and his followers. In the gaps between his Emperor books he completed a five book series on Genghis Khan and his grandson, Kublai Khan; he travelled extensively throughout Mongolia in order to immerse himself in their alien world.
