The follow-up to "ROMA", this novel continues the story of a fictional Roman family down through successive generations. A family heirloom is passed on from father to son. Each generation has its own story to tell, and its own individual characters. ROMA told the story of the myth of the city of Rome's founding and the birth of the Roman Republic. EMPIRE tells the reader about the Roman empire (after Augustus) and involves major figures such as Nero, Claudius and Hadrian. Friendship, political intrigue, love and tragedy are woven into the fabric of one Roman family. A page-turning adventure that I didn't want to put down! Will check out his other books in the near future...
