Sarah Broadhurst's view...
The fourth and final volume of the life of Julius Caesar. History brilliantly recreated, full of high adventure. It is sad to see the end of the series but his next, also about an ancient warrior, should be brilliant too. I look forward to it.
Similar this month: None, but try Matthew Reilly.
Comparison: Bernard Cornwell, Valerio Massimo Manfredi, Steven Pressfield.
The Emperor Series:

Emperor : The Gods of War by Conn Iggulden
Caesar must fight his toughest battle yet – with Rome itself.
Julius Caesar, fresh from triumph in Britain and Gaul, is marching on Rome with his legions of hardened veterans. His goal: to unseat Pompey, now dictator of the Empire.
But waging war on your own people is never easy. And even after the city itself is taken and Julius, Brutus, Mark Antony and Octavian re-enter in triumph, there are many battles left to fight. For across the Empire – in Spain, Africa, Greece, across Asia Minor – there are legions loyal to Pompey. How will Caesar prevail? And at what cost?
‘The Gods of War’ is the story of ambition and loyalty, of friendship and power, of love and war. A famous tale, of truly epic dimensions, it ranges from Rome to Greece to Egypt and back to Rome; it shows how brilliant generalship can completely turn the odds, how overwhelming success can change even the best of men; it depicts brilliantly those famous names – Caesar, Marcus Brutus, Mark Antony, Pompey, Cicero, Cleopatra, Ptolemy – so that they appear anew. This is a triumphant conclusion to the outstanding Emperor series.
‘If you liked “Gladiator”, you’ll love “Emperor”.’ The Times
‘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.’ Bernard Cornwell
‘The great events and breathtaking brutality of the times are brought lavishly to life.’ Guardian
