More About the Author
Rosemary Sutcliff's novels about Roman Britain have won much critical acclaim. The best-known of these is her The Eagle of the Ninth trilogy, of which the second book in the trilogy, The Lantern Bearers, was awarded the 1959 Carnegie Medal.
Sadly, Rosemary died in 1992 at the age of 72.

However, things begin to go wrong for Alexios and his men with the arrival of an arrogant superior officer who does not understand the fluidity required of troops guarding a frontier. The final part of the book is a gripping description of a desperate flight under sustained attack and includes a moving and believable description of single combat that will make you unable to put it down until it's over.
As with many of Sutcliff's books, this is a story about friendship and honour and learning who you are. I recommend it to anyone who liked The Eagle of the Ninth - Alexios even has Marcus's flawed emerald signet ring and I like to think they are some relation!
Never mind King Arthur, they should just have made THIS film instead !
Absolutely and highly recommended for any reader from about 10 years and with no upper limit.
