'Corker' of a Book,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Under the Eagle: Cato & Macro: Book 1 (The Eagle Series) (Kindle Edition)
I love these sort of books, having started with Hornblower years ago and then the Sharpe books. I felt there was a great deal to learn about this period and especially about the Roman Army. I felt the pace was just right and the characters grew slowly throughout the book. Good action scenes but well balanced with the overall tone. I will buy more but not just yet, in protest at the publisher's set price. I don't expect a book for nothing but I expect the ebook to be cheaper than the real thing. The publisher's argument is too reminiscent of the fixed book prices of years ago and deregulation did not kill the book industry.
