Emperor: The Blood of Gods (Emperor Series): : Conn Iggulden: Books
Ladies and gentlemen, I may have just finished the best historical fiction I’ve ever read. Conn Iggulden lives in Hertfordshire with his wife and their children. The first time when we met Octavian, he was a street urchin struggling to stay alive and since then under the tutelage of Caesar and Brutus he grew into a fine soldier in earlier books.
