Not to be a bore but I have read all the books in this series. I once vowed I would not commit my reading time to anything larger than a trilogy, but Simon Scarrow's Cato and Macro stories are so consistently entertaining I just had to break my own rule. Each book is a self-contained story and I think they can be read individually, but the best approach imo is to start with book One and read them in order. I don’t usually read this genre, although that’s not to say I haven’t. These books are great adventure, friendship and full of daring do. The later ones become more political as Mr Scarrow attempts to explain in some part the forces acting upon Rome and its empire. It’s a well-used phrase but I couldn’t put this one down, reading into the wee small hours when I should have been sleeping and suffering at work the next day. I recommend the settings, adventure and descriptive writing style that Simon Scarrow has mastered.
