Product description

Book Description

From the author of the Sunday Times bestsellers BRITANNIA, CENTURION and THE GLADIATOR, and co-author with T. J. Andrews of the Sunday Times bestseller ARENA, comes a tense, action-packed adventure with the Roman army officer Figulus in the heart of barbaric first-century Britannia.

Previously published in five separate ebook-only instalments.

From the Back Cover

Roman Britain, AD 44

The rebel Caratacus has been defeated. But the land is far from tamed. A puppet king is doing little to calm the hatred of the tribes and bring them under Roman rule.

Fighting is in Optio Horatius Figulus' blood. His Celtic ancestry is mocked by his fellow soldiers, but it gives him the toughness essential for survival. That toughness - and the courage of Figulus and his men - will be tested to the very limit on a mission deep in hostile territory.

And Figulus understands the Celtic mind. He knows that, even utterly crushed in battle, their warriors routed and the Druids driven from their forts, the tribesmen of Britannia will sooner die than surrender.

Figulus fought alongside Macro and Cato in Simon Scarrow's bestselling Eagles of the Empire series. In INVADER, he stands alone. [IN A DIFFERENT COLOUR OR FONT]

INVADER has previously been published in five separate ebook novellas. [CAN BE QUITE SMALL]

This is an offshoot of Scarrow’s Eagle series, with one of its secondary characters – the Gallo-Roman Horatius Figulus – taking centre stage. The action takes place in Britain in AD 44, after Cato, Macro and Vespasian have left to return to Rome, and therefore sometime after “The Eagle’s Prey”, for those who have read the series. As mentioned inside the book, this story has already been published as five separate ebook novellas.

Regarding authorship, and although both the names of Simon Scarrow and T.J. Andrews appear, and the latter may have dome much of the writing, the copyrights belong to the former. This is perhaps just a well to the extent that a large part of the plot is a bit of a remake of “the Eagles and the Wolves.” There are, however, a number of significant differences as well. In particular, and in addition to the differences in character, the Romans do not recruit and train auxiliary cohorts in this title.

The book’s beginning is quite original and rather good, with a griping and exciting mopping action (the Roman attack on Victis) that follows up on Vespasian’s campaign in the South-West of Britain. The other main theme of the book is about how the Romans tried to use - and largely succeeded, even if this does not entirely appear in this book – the rivalries and endemic conflicts between tribes to their benefit, and supporting a number of chieftains against their rivals.

The story about the Durotrigians is mostly fiction. They are not noted in the historical sources as being one of the tribes whose chieftain sided with the Roman invaders, unlike Cogidubnus, King of the Regni or Verica, King of the Atrebates, and one of the main characters in “the Eagles and the Wolves”.
