I thought this was a great series. Sulla has to be one of best characters to be written about in history. I loved the way she brought the Senate debates to life and she has a great way of using humour in the books. The last book was heart-rending in the way she depicted the end of the Republic.
One thing, I believe she has being persuaded to write another book about Anthony and Octavian.
About Octavian? really? I need books to read about him. Has she written about him already?
I hate that there arent good historical fiction books about him just cause he wasnt scandalous or war hungry enough. Its disrespecting the creator of the Roman Empire.
There are always books and movies about Ceaser(his betrayal,murder) and Commudus(the fall of rome stuff). Nero(the fire) etc
Octavian for his sake should have been less good of an emperor and have some huge wars or scandals
