Romano British Chronicles,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Eagle of the Ninth Chronicles (Kindle Edition)
Don't be put off by the fact that these are often seen as books for "young adults" The trilogy covers the waning and withdrawal of Roman power in Britain and the rise of the various factions struggling to take over through the eyes of one Romano British family, although they can be read as separate stories .
On one level each is an adventure ranging from the finding of the lost Eagle of the ninth legion through to the rise of Ambrosius and a young man called Artos. They are also however a tribute to discipline and order as typified by the Romans (often given a bad press) and the various "barbarian " tribes with their own versions of slavery and cruelty as well as noble and brave warriors. The heart of the story is the conflict between loyalty to Rome and ones homeland. All three books are excellently written and inspired by ancient artefacts found in Britain.
