Conn Iggulden – “The Gates of Rome”


This excellent, fast-paced historical novel brings to life a young Gaius Julius and Marcus Brutus in the first of the four “Emperor” novels about Julius Caesar. I had no sooner finished these 600+ pages than I began ‘The Death of Kings’.

Emperor series
1. The Gates of Rome (2003)
2. The Death of Kings (2004)
3. The Field of Swords (2004)
4. The Gods of War (2006)

CONN IGGULDEN, born 1971, attended St.Martins School in Northwood before moving on to Merchant Taylors' School. He studied English at the University of London, and went on to teach the subject for seven years - becoming head of the English department at St Gregory's Roman Catholic School in London. He eventually left teaching to write his first novel, The Gates of Rome. He is married with three children and lives in Hertfordshire, England.
