Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“As usual, McCullough applies her historical research judiciously and skillfully, integrating details that drive her story forward. She deftly handles a large cast of characters and brings welcome humanity to such historical icons as the conniving Brutus, indecisive Pompey and young, charismatic Mark Antony. McCulloughs legion of readers now dwarfs Caesar’s own considerable army. This novel will increase the ranks.” Publishers Weekly
“Michael York’s energetic and empathic narration…maintains the energy and spirit that take the listener through the machinations and plotting of all involved. The emotions are real and fresh…a masterful narrator make this engrossing to the end.” AudioFile
“Rewarding but rugged terrain for the casual reader.” Kirkus Reviews
