A brilliant read,
This review is from: The Legion (Paperback)
Yet another enthralling Adventure involving Centurion Macro and his one time Optio, Cato, whose superior intellect and capability for strategic planning has now seen him elevated to the more senior rank of Prefect.
Together, Cato and Macro are tasked with the unenviable mission of tracking down, recapturing and bringing to justice the rebellious gladiator, Ajax. Not only is this dangerous renegade hell-bent on destabalising the Roman empire by forging an alliance with a massive Nubian army, but has also vowed to avenge the crucifiction of his father, and his own enslavement, through the brutal death of the two Roman officers who now track him.
This is the 10th instalement in a fantastic series that keeps you gripped from the first page to the very last. If you are considering getting this book and have not yet read the previous 9 in this series, then STOP!. Purchase instead the first instalment, Under The Eagle, and enjoy many weeks of brilliant reading as you work your way through the entire series. I, for one, cannot wait for the next epic adventure of these two loyal Roman warriors.
Simon Scarrow knows his stuff! He grabs your interest quickly and never lets up. A brilliant read!
