Publisher's Summary

Julius Caesar has been assassinated. A nation is in mourning. Revenge will be bloody... Rome's great hero has been brutally murdered by his most trusted allies. While these self-appointed Liberatores seek refuge in the senate, they have underestimated one man: Caesar's adopted son Octavian, a man whose name will echo through history as Augustus Caesar.
Uniting with his great rival Mark Antony, Octavian will stop at nothing to seek retribution and avenge his father's death. His greatest hatred is reserved for Brutus, Caesar's childhood friend and greatest ally, now leader of the conspirators. As the people take to the streets of Rome, the Liberatores must face their fate. Some flee the city; others will not escape mob justice. Not a single one will die a natural death. And the reckoning will come for Brutus on the sweeping battlefield at Philippi.
The epic fifth novel in Conn Iggulden's bestselling 'Emperor' series.

Narration made me wish for the Armies of Caeser

What would have made EMPEROR: The Blood of Gods, Book 5 (Unabridged) better?

For the narrator to have been tied down and forced to listen to his own steady destruction of a wonderful book


What was one of the most memorable moments of EMPEROR: The Blood of Gods, Book 5 (Unabridged)?

When the narrator pronounced Iggulden's name Ig-Gulden after 7 seconds - However, after 6 hrs and 39 minutes of the second part he gives in and pronounces the name correctly.


How did the narrator detract from the book?

By reading the book. The emphasis is all over the place and he sounds like a robot. There is NOTHING to redeem this terrible narration - Why oh why would ANYONE decide this farce is acceptable??


If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from EMPEROR: The Blood of Gods, Book 5 (Unabridged)?

Nothing - The story is perfect


Any additional comments?

Bring back crucifiction for the narrator and SHAME on Audible for charging a single denarius for this. I hope Conn Iggulden writes many more great books and never allows them to be mashed by this narrator again.
