5.0 out of 5 stars A great read, 24 Jan. 2014
This review is from: Wounds of Honour: Empire I (Empire series) (Paperback)
Charity shop buy, but staying on my shelves.

The story is simple ongoing and upbeat, i found myself wanting to stop whatever i was doing and go and read a chapter. The size of the chapters are very reasonable I could get through one in around 15 minutes (well a train ride into my work).

The story is based around Marcus Valerius Aquila (yes like the guy off The Eagle film), he is forced to go to Britain to escape the Emperor. This leads him into the path of the Hadrians wall and the soldiers occupying it. Marcus if forced to try and adapt to his surrounding and earn the respect of the Tungrans under his command. It's not just the threat of the emperor but also treachery inside the camp that will force Marcus to be vigilant. A final horde of Britains will test Marcus and the soldiers on the wall like no other and will be a true test of his leadership.

I had fallen out with Roman books after failing to grasp Simon Scarrow's books, but this has pulled me right back. It was a trully thrilling read and have already ordered the second. YES this book has a sequal which I didn't know, so i'm looking forward to following the conclusion of this book in the next one.
