The best of the best just got better,
This review is from: The Eagle and the Wolves (Eagles of the Empire 4) (Hardcover)
Recovering from the injuries received in WHEN THE EAGLE HUNTS Macro and Cato are given the job of training some native units to protect the aged kind of the Atrebates. Meanwhile, they have to cope with enemy raids, plotters within the tribe and a headstrong and noisome tribune. Treachery comes from an unexpected source and within hours the whole position of the Roman army in Britain is placed in jeopardy. Caratacus is within an ace of defeating Rome. Can Cato and Macro save the day? Well, what do you think?
As ever the heroes speak like real people, the prose is crisp and elegant and the sense of time and place utterly compelling. I think this is the best of the lot so far and can only wait a long frustrating year before the next helping of classy entertainment is dished up by Simon Scarrow
