5.0 out of 5 stars Very good, 31 Mar. 2014
This review is from: The Blood Crows (Roman Legion) by Scarrow, Simon (2013) Hardcover (Hardcover)
From the get go `The Blood Crows' goes straight into the action.

The reader is immersed into a vivid account of blood and guts. For those of you who have sampled other books in the series you will no doubt be familiar with Mr Scarrow's approach to action scenes as the reader is immersed into the narrative, better than some video game. What you also get in this new novel are some new and interesting plot threads.
Mr Scarrow also pays attention to historical element - the reader gets a thought-provoking look into Roman society and here we really get to see the differences between say the native inhabitants of Britannia and the Roman occupiers. The dialogue is framed in such a way - so you really get a feel for the merits of this book. The pacing, as ever is good, and is pretty engrossing as well as entertaining. The Blood Crows is literally edge of your seat stuff, as the author has mastered the art of balancing between well moulded characters and pulling the reader into their `world'. The characters of Macro and Cato, as always, are the centre piece of the series, they are really well crafted and it was pleasure to be in their company again. They do not fail in keeping the readers interest; after all `we' the readers have `invested' ourselves in their lives - warts and all.

So, if you're interested in reading about the rich tapestry of Imperial Roman and the Empire they forged, or you are already familiar with Simon Scarrow's Eagle series - then look no further as The Blood Crows will be right up your street.

Great story telling that only Simon Scarrow could have put together.
