5.0 out of 5 stars The Eagle's Prophecy, 20 Jun 2007
This review is from: The Eagle's Prophecy (Roman Legion 6) (Paperback)
Once again Simon Scarrow has excelled himself with the Eagle's series. He has drawn two marvellous lead characters in Macro and Cato and pulled off brilliantly the setting of their adventures within and amongst real historical characters.

If you enjoy this series then Scarrow has plenty of excellent company but I would put him on top of the pile containing:

Lindsey Davis

Rosemary Rowe

Steven Saylor

David Wishart

John Maddox Roberts

I cannot wait to see how their lives progress alongside Vittelius and Vespasian who are both destined to be Emperor in 25 years time. Having read Scarrow's characterisation of Vitellius it is easy to imagine they were queuing up to assassinate him in December of AD 69 and to imagine why Vespasian was everyone's choice as a stable figurehead for the empire.

Here's to 20+ years of Macro and Cato!?
