Quotes

'A page turner from beginning to end ... A damn fine read'

Ben Kane

'The Rise of Emperors series is first-rate Roman fiction'

Matthew Harffy

'I am in awe of the skill of both authors to bring something as complex as this period to life with such apparent ease ... Each chapter flows into the next, the desire to give both characters an equal voice never falters, and quite frankly, I have no idea how the trilogy is ultimately going to end, but I am desperate to know. I highly recommend <i>Masters of Rome</i>, especially for those who have no knowledge of the period's history (like me) because it is fascinating and told with panache and skill, with an eye to detail. And those who do know the period, you're still in for a treat'
