Having grown up intrigued by the mystery of the ninth legion I was keen to read a modern take on it and found this very readable and informative, especially with the appendix. At one stage it did feel rather like the Titanic! but that was unavoidable given the subject. The switch from Rome to Antioch to York was very effective and gave it a fast pace. It is a fiction read but I would definitely recommend it, especially to anyone who thinks they have all the answers!

Unfortunately it did not take me long to finish this riveting read. Now I have to search for another page-turner which THE EAGLE HAS FALLEN proved to be. The author was able to easily juxtapose the atmosphere in northern Britain along with that of Antioch and Rome itself. This was done effortlessly and seamlessly. One could easily have become annoyed at the switching back and forth, but this was so easily done and as you read on it kept you gripped as to what would be on the next page.

I hope the author plans to use his literary skills and knowledge of history towards another book. The last time I read anything as good was Robert Harris' trilogy on Rome.

The Eagle of the Ninth is one of those stories that continues to fascinate - and this is a neat attempt to blend the story of the roman empire at the time and to link the actions of the Emperor Hadrian to what happened to the Ninth legion. The story is well done but not reaching the gut wrenching violence of Anthony Riches or Simon Scarrow. The politics of the empire are also well mixed into the story and the love interest is beyond the usual with both main characters developed well - especially her previous occupation...
So, overall a good story and the pesky Brits come across well so I do wonder if there is a series in the offing .. well worth reading

Format: Paperback
I finished reading this excellent novel very recently. I was very pleasantly surprised by everything about this book and I remain somewhat confused why so little noise it has produced across the wider communications spectrum.

In short, the book covers the period from the death of the Emperor Trajan and the first couple of years of the reign of Hadrian. The narrative covers the expanse of the Roman Empire from Syria to Rome and onto the Northern Border of the Empire in Britain. The Author is to roundly commended for managing to make what could have been episodic and clunky run extremely smoothly, so smoothly in fact I very nearly forgot that the story had once again moved locations on a number of occasions.

I cannot but heartily recommend this book to anyone interested in the historical fiction, especially Roman Military. Anyone who enjoys the novels of Simon Scarrow will absolutely love this.

Never having heard of the Ninth Legion or thought about the details of why Hadrian built his famous wall, and not being particularly into Roman history this is not a book I would have normally picked up. A chance encounter with the author, however, persuaded me to give it a go. The historical background is interesting and gave me a better insight into the events in Roman Britain that led to the wall, as well as to the succession of Hadrian as Emperor. Having just been to Rome for the first time gave it an extra interest. The story has several levels and interlinked plot lines and sometimes I found it difficult to keep them all straight. There are occasional moments of clunkiness in the writing but I have seen a lot worse from more experienced and famous writers. All in all it was a good read and in the build up to the end of the Ninth Legion the tension mounts even though the outcome is inevitable and already known. I recommend it for anyone with even a remote interest in the Romans in Britain and given their influence it is hard not to have at least some interest.

This is a great read! A real page turner and one that kept the bedside light burning well into the wee small hours! The depictions of the inner workings of Rome and its outposts together with the heroes and villains that unfold along the way draw you in to a long lost world and keeps you wondering, long after you've finished the book, is this what really happened to the ninth...?

After reading this book I would definitely say absolutely enthralling, I thoroughly enjoyed this book written by knowledgeable author who has certainly studied the Roman armies way of life, plenty of action battles and the inside way of life of aRoman legionaires toiling day and night for little recompense and marching onwards for ungrateful masters. I have come to the conclusion Hadrian was a right bad man as were so many who went before him. Overall I would recommend this book to anyone who likes Roman war. D Bowen.

Above all this a page turning winner of a story. My reason for reading was the mystery element that the title provoked and I absolutely recommend the book to anyone who enjoys a fast paced storyline and to those who have an interest in Roman Britain. It will intrigue and encourage the search for further knowledge on the topic.
