5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic!!!, 6 Nov. 2008
I bought Dawn of Empire on the recommendation of a friend and as a big fan of historical novels from the likes of Iggulden, Cornwall, and Scarrow was immediately impressed by the quality and intensity of the story line and characters. No sooner had I finished the Dawn, than I picked up a copy of the sequal, and I'm pleased to say I wasn't dissappointed! The quality of writing was good already, but this takes Barone to a new level. It's really great to pick up a book that has the power to capture one's attention so completely and maintain it to the very end. I really can't wait to learn more about Eskkar and Trella's adventure, let hope we don't have to wait too long!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, 17 July 2005
The Emporor series quite literally goes from strength to strength, and hurtles towards the final instalment in the 'Gods of War'.
The book follows the progress of Julius Caesar through Gaul, and into Britain, and gives a fantastic insight into the mind of one of the worlds most acquisitive collectors of nations and cultures. Little doubt where the inspiration for the Borg came from! Iggulden, however looks beyond the blood and guts which were without doubt a real element of Roman life in the raw, and extends into the massive responsibility the Caesars' bore in heading such an empire.
Absolutely and without doubt the best author in this genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, 17 July 2005
This review is from: When the Eagle Hunts (Paperback)
AD 44 and Macro and Cato have been on sabbatical, but in typical Scarrow style, not for long! They are soon thrust into the action as the wife and children of General Plautius are taken hostage by the Druids of the Dark Moon, and only this Centurion and his Optio can save them from an unpleasant end!
Scarrow continues the adventures of Macro and Cato in confident style and as is typical of his series the pace gathers inexorably as the book progresses, to the point at which I could quite literally not put it down!
If you enjoy high adventure, and non stop action then this series is without doubt for you.
