I thought it was a good read. Once started I had to keep going, which is always a good thing. The hero was bit "cowboy" like; in some terrible situations, but could never be killed. Still enjoyable though. Anyone who likes roman fiction will enjoy this.

Gordon Doherty seems to have the Scottish fascination with glorious defeat. His subject matter of Manzikert is the great 'Game changer' in the history of the Eastern Roman Empire. That being said he handles the subject in such a way that although you know whats coming you can't put 'Strategos' down. His portrayal of a professional military desperately trying to prop up a crumbling empire is reminiscent of Wallace Breems brilliant 'Eagle in Snow' although not so stark. Make no mistake this is if not a great novel it is certainly extremely good one and I believe the series will only get better from here.

Finished this one quite rapidly and was largely impressed. Just another historical-fantasy but the characters were believable and the story was well paced. A nice mix of tragedy and bad-assery.

Another excellent read, main are unbelievably indistructable. But that's fiction for you! These heroes will march through brick walls. Worth turning every page.
