Sceptical at first...,
This review is from: Under the Eagle (Eagles of the Empire 1) (Paperback)
I was very sceptical when buying this first book. I am interested in this period but have had little time to research it properly, and thought this might be another example of an author completely changing history to fit his plot line. I was very wrong! The history is extremely well researched, and as far as I can make out completely accurate. In which case you might think the story is dull - again, could not be more wrong! Cato and Macro are heartwarming characters (particularly as the series go on - yes, I bought them all after reading this first book) and the storyline is very entertaining. If you're even a little interested in the Roman legions or the Roman period of history, I cannot recommend this series enough!
