5.0 out of 5 stars What a magnificent series this is!
Cato and Macro's third outing is the best yet. Having survived the full horrors of battle in the previous two books they find themselves embarking on a mission to rescue General Plautius's family from the clutches of some pretty bloodthirsty and terrifying Druids. As before, the principal characters are thoroughly three-dimensional and the dialogue crackles with smart...

3.0 out of 5 stars Not up to Scarrow's usual standard
This story is O.K. but is not as good as the previous tales. Some of the action feels somewhat forced and the depictions of Boudica and Prasutagus are a bit cliched, particularly the latter's dumb but descent barbarian act. On the other hand, it does have it's moments and the introduction of the Druids as bogeymen adds a nice new level of threat.

5.0 out of 5 stars When the Eagle Hunts, 22 Jun. 2010
This review is from: When the Eagle Hunts (Paperback)
I am new to the Scarrow books, and bought the complete set of adventures of Centurions Macro and Cato and I am hooked. Great stories intertwined with historical fact, but gives a terrific insight of life throughout the Roman Empire but with some clever modern touches to the narrative. Give me more please Mr Scarrow.

4.0 out of 5 stars Part of an Ancient Rome historical fiction series, 6 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: When the Eagle Hunts (Paperback)
For those who enjoy a good Ancient Rome historical fiction series based on gladiators, roman frontiers, conquests and defeats - but loosely based around history so that you gain a true feeling amongst the fictional characters of how Ancient Rome May have been, one can not go past this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Rome wins again., 31 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Really enjoyed this adventure story. Found it difficult to put down. The druids are at the centre of this story and Scarrow really brings them to the fore as an enemy that Rome needs to destroy if they are to conquer the British tribes.
