“A masterly account of this first wicked century of the Roman Empire”
– Adam Nicolson, Sunday Times
“Holland does not just tell the story of the reign of the Julio-Claudian family. He knits the history of ancient Rome into his narrative – its founding myths, the fall of the republic, the religious superstitions – with a skill so dextrous you don´t notice the stitching.

– Nick Cohen, Observer
“A witty and skillful storyteller … He recounts with pleasure his racy tales of psychopathic cruelty, incest, paedophilia, matricide, fratricide, assassination and depravity”
– William Dalrymple, New Statesman
