#BookReview: Sons of Rome (Rise of Emperors #1) by Simon Turney, Gordon Doherty






Synopsis: Four Emperors. Two Friends. One Destiny.
As twilight descends on the 3rd century AD, the Roman Empire is but a shadow of its former self. Decades of usurping emperors, splinter kingdoms and savage wars have left the people beleaguered, the armies weary and the future uncertain. And into this chaos Emperor Diocletian steps, reforming the succession to allow for not one emperor to rule the world, but four.

Meanwhile, two boys share a chance meeting in the great city of Treverorum as Diocletian's dream is announced to the imperial court. Throughout the years that follow, they share heartbreak and glory as that dream sours and the empire endures an era of tyranny and dread. Their lives are inextricably linked, their destinies ever-converging as they rise through Rome's savage stations, to the zenith of empire. For Constantine and Maxentius, the purple robes beckon...

My Review: 
Time for Sons of Rome! I loved this one!! They couldn’t put it down! If your looking for that Rome feeling check this one out. It was a great escape. This historical fiction story is one of a kind. I loved the pacing and the characters and just everything.  This fast based story is one that buildings up the action for the next book in the series.  And although I usually don't care for that this one worked so well.  I need book two now!
