My 9 year olds picked up two of his books last week and are devouring them - Emperor The Gods of War and another Roman one.

They're not really my thing so I wondered if there are any themes/things that are disturbing that I should be aware of?

Not Colin, rather Conn Iggulden. Doh!

How bizarre - I'd never heard of Conn Iggulden until last night when google told me he'd been very complimentary about my book. Then I discovered he was profilic and hugely successful, and now 12 hours later here he is the subject of a new thread on the only mumsnet topic I visit!

It would be churlish of me not to read some of his stuff now!

Sorry that wasnt what you were asking, however i do think that kids read over stuffthey dont need to deal with and can see far nastier things in real life and telly then in historical fiction

Haven't read them but dh has and he says there's sex and violence. He wouldn't recommend a nine year old read them.

More sex in the Roman ones than in the Mongol ones.
