The ultimate Rome story
The young Julius Caesar is serving on board a war galley, gaining a fearsome reputation. Then his ship is captured and he is abandoned on the North African coast.

At the moment of his triumph, Julius finds he must fight again. A savage rebellion threatens the city, led by a gladiator named Spartacus…
The second instalment in the bestselling Emperor series.
‘Iggulden is in a class of his own when it comes to epic, historical fiction’ Daily Mirror
‘A brilliant story – I wish I’d written it. A novel of vivid characters, stunning action and unrelenting pace. It really is a terrific read.’
‘The descriptions of combat in the circus, slaves in revolt, skirmishes in Greece, amputations and street fighting are all convincing.’
‘A rich and compelling novel that draws the reader into an extraordinary time and the life of an extraordinary man.’
