Uncomplicated action adventure
on 21 September 2006
If you like ancient Rome and you want your protaganists to be uncomplicated and their adventures page-turning, then Scarrow is for you.
Cato and Macro, his two central characters have improved as this series has progressed.
Now we see them outside of the comfort of Britannia, and in this case (briefly) in Rome itself before dashing off to tackle pirates in the Adriatic.
Some have pointed out that Scarrow's characterisation can be uneven, and that his description of Roman society is a tad light. There is some truth in this, but despite this - if you want an enjoyable military romp - then this is for you.
