Scarrow's [novels] rank with the best
Rollicking good fun
A satisfyingly bloodthirsty, bawdy romp...perfect for Bernard Cornwell addicts who will relish its historical detail and fast-paced action. Storming stuff
Gripping and moving
A new book in Simon Scarrow's long-running series about the Roman army is always a joy
[Simon Scarrow] blends together historical facts and characters to create a book that simply cannot be put down... Highly recommended
Praise for Simon Scarrow's novels: 'I really don't need this kind of competition... It's a great read'
