Review:
Once again pure gold from Simon Scarrow. This is a short story giving Eagles fans a taste of the early life og Macro. Optio Macro is just as charming and affable as ever and has to steer the murky waters of Rome without the aid of his more cerebral sidekick Cato. As usual he lands in hot water (not of his own making) and has to use his own brutal uncompromising skills to get out of it by training Pavo. There are some juicy hints in there that i shall be emailing Simon about to see if I'm right (if he will give away and secrets that is).
The writing as ever is fun fast and well researched with a style that very few can come close too.

Highly recommended

Product Description:
The first in an ebook-exclusive series of action-packed novellas set in Ancient Rome introducing Pavo, a novice gladiator, and featuring Simon Scarrow's ongoing soldier character Optio Macro. It is AD 41. The savage Gaul Britomaris has defeated the best of the Roman gladiators in the arena. Now a young volunteer, Marcus Valerius Pavo, the son of a murdered general, has been given a month to prepare to face Britomaris in a fight which only one man can survive. He is to be trained by veteran soldier Macro, who fears for his young trainee's chances. But Pavo is motivated by more than a simple desire for victory or survival, and Britomaris may yet be facing his most dangerous opponent...
