4.0 out of 5 stars One of the best in the series, 10 Oct. 2007

This review is from: The Eagle's Prophecy (Roman Legion 6) (Paperback)
In "The Eagle's Prophecy" Macro and Cato, having returned with Vespasian from Britain, find themselves stuck in Rome unable to find news postings to another legion. When the imperial secretary Narcissus learns of their presence he has just the job for them: pirates have been scourging the coasts of Italy, and by sheer luck three very important scrolls have fallen into their hands. Macro and Cato are to join the fleet ordered to destroy these pirates, and retrieve the scrolls. A difficult enough mission as it is, but as luck would have it their old enemy Vitellius has been appointed prefect of the fleet...

I found this a very good adventure novel, not least because of the change of scene: Macro and Cato have to face unfamiliar enemies on unfamiliair ground (or water, of you will). Combined with the skill Scarrow meanwhile has in building an intriguing plot and keeping you in the thick of action almost constantly, this makes for a very welcome addition to the series.

Very well done, I'm looking forward to the further adventures of our 2 centurions!
