A satisfyingly bloodthirsty, bawdy romp...perfect for Bernard Cornwell addicts who will relish its historical detail and fast-paced action. Storming stuff
A new book in Simon Scarrow's long-running series about the Roman army is always a joy
Scarrow's [novels] rank with the best
Blood, gore, political intrigue, gripes, fears - ah, coming back to Scarrow's Eagles of Empire series is like a family homecoming in front of a warm fire... A historical fiction thriller that'll have you reaching for your gladius
An engrossing storyline, full of teeth-clenching battles, political machinations, treachery, honour, love and death... More, please!
A rip-roaring read
The Eagles of the Empire series marches on with the brilliantly told adventures of Cato and Macro... Roman soldiering at its very best - even by Scarrow's high standards
Praise for Simon Scarrow's novels: 'Gripping... ferocious and compelling'
I really don't need this kind of competition... It's a great read
