This review is from: The Eagle's Prey (Paperback)
I have read the previous books from Simon Scarrow, like 'Under the Eagles', 'The Eagles Conquest', 'When the Eagle hunts' and 'The Eagles and the Wolves'. They are all page-turners. I expected 'The Eagles Prey' to be different, but it is also very intense, you can feel the tension from the start... You learn a lot about the Roman's tactics from a view from an intelligent man who lives through the whole history, Lucius Cato. He's first a legionnary, later an optio and becomes a centurion. He thinks like a general and acts next to his kindsmen. He adapts himself to the situation and learns from it. That's why he's different from his kindsmen, he learns all the way through.
It's a great pleasure to read.
Thanks a lot,
