LoveReading View on Emperor: The Field of Swords

The third volume in the acclaimed Emperor series, in which the author brilliantly interweaves history and adventure to recreate the life of Julius Caesar - ambition and rivalry, bravery and betrayal - it’s all there, from an outstanding new voice in historical fiction

Emperor: The Field of Swords Synopsis

Julius Caesar must walk a dangerous path if he is to survive the dying days of the Republic. Everything and everyone he loves will be tested in fire.
The Field of Swords begins as Caesar completes his inner circle, the men who will be his generals. When the opportunity comes to stand as Consul, he returns to a city where plots and conspiracies threaten the stability of everything he values. Together, Pompey, Crassus and Caesar form the uneasy alliance that is the first Triumvirate. For Julius Caesar, it is the chance to forge a new path that will take him to Gaul and off the edge of the map to Britain. These are the last days of the old order, shaped and torn by a man without equal in human history. This is his summer.
