I won this book on goodreads “giveaways”. Emperor: The Gates Of Rome, is about Gaius and Marcus’s life as they grow from boys into men. I was never that fascinated with the roman empire, but I thought the book sounded interesting. I was pleasantly surprised with a story that not only kept me turning pages but also gave me an understanding of a history I have never really studied before. The historical notes at the end was great giving you some facts and info on what was changed for the story. With it being the first book of a series I was worried about how and where it would end. Conn Iggulden did a great job at finding a satisfying ending that you could stop at and be happy and at the same time left it open enough that makes you want to continue with the series. I look forward to reading the next book in the Emperor series.
