Excellent - much more fun that Roman politics,
This review is from: The Blood Crows (Roman Legion) (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
I read this in just two sittings (as it were) because its more like the Macro/Cato stories that we had at the start of the series. These two don't seem that suited to sneaking about but rather tackling enemies head on.
They are back in perfidious Albion where Caracticus / Druids refuse to admit defeat and the battles that take place are really quite graphic - especially the treatment of prisoners - so be warned
But there is a pace to story that I thought was missing a bit from the last couple of episodes and I also though that Cato was becoming more his own man - witmess the show down with a roman leader who has become very bit as violent as the Britons - there is definately a parrallel with today and our handling of terrorists (or are they freedom fighters.. ?)
The story is well done, against huge odds and I'm just waiting for episode 13 ..
