Book Description

23 Feb 2009 Republic (Book 3)
Lucius Falerius is dead, and Rome in its entirety mourns the passing of its most powerful senator. It falls to his young son Marcellus to carry out his father's legacy and restore the rights promised to the defeated Sicilian slaves, yet there are those who will not see the honour of Rome compromised and the slaves assuaged. On the Roman border provinces there is trouble, and the legions move north to neutralise the threat posed by the Celts. The confederation of Celtic tribes is united under one Chieftain, the formidable and unpredictable Brennos, yet there is a plot to see him dead and the confederation broken. For Brennos, the treachery comes from within his own family, for which he will exact a brutal and bloody revenge.

5.0 out of 5 stars The brilliant conclusion to The Republic Trilogy. 25 April 2009
An amazing end to a great historical trilogy. Ludlow's story catches the imagination and never lets go, from the first page to the last this trilogy is filled with politics, war, assassination and intrigue. This a very well written series that transports back to the Republics glory days, you get a real sense if the elitist society Rome was, were the rich got richer and the poor were just that the poor. If you're a fan of Rome or historical fiction in general then is a great series to get your Teeth into.

This story is for the most part the story of Aquila Terentius, from his escape from Sicily to his journey to the streets of Rome were he meets some of his adopted family, namely a troublesome nephew names Fabius. He and his nephew get into numerous trouble to the point were to escape they join the Roman legions. Terentius shines, quickly being made centurion and earning battlefield honours, much to the displeasure of his noble masters. Aquila's one goal is to wipe out the leader of the Celtic tribes, if he can only survive the many powerful enemies he has made along the way, he may finally get to reach his goal.

This is a great third book in Jack Ludlow's Republic series.

It's full of action, characters, drama and suspense. Jack Ludlow possesses a grand, distinctively classical narrative style.

Set mainly in Rome and Spain, we follow the extraordinary rise of Aquila Terentius through the ranks of the 18th Legion. At the same time, the contest between Quintus and Titus develops into an ultimate battle for Roman Imperium. Marcellus also becomes a real contender as his father, Lucius, had foreplanned. The fate of the Celtic rebel, Brennos, is finally sealed. Claudia discovers the answer to her lifelong quest and reunites finally with her lost son.

And all this is set against some stunning military action, brilliantly executed thanks to the military genius of both Aquila and Marcellus, with great battle sequences described on land and sea.

This is a series of epic dimensions, will there be a fourth novel?
