Praise for Simon Scarrow : 'I really don't need this kind of competition... It's a great read' (Bernard Cornwell)

Scarrow's [novels] rank with the best (Independent)

[Simon Scarrow] blends together historical facts and characters to create a book that simply cannot be put down... Highly recommended (Historical Novels Review)

'A satisfyingly bloodthirsty, bawdy romp...perfect for Bernard Cornwell addicts who will relish its historical detail and fast-paced action. Storming stuff' (Good Book Guide)

Rollicking good fun (Mail on Sunday)

By Kate TOP 500 REVIEWER on 17 Nov. 2016
Format: Hardcover
Prefect Cato and Centurion Macro march across the pages once more in this, the fifteenth novel in Simon Scarrow’s ever popular and thoroughly entertaining Eagles of the Empire series. One of the reasons why I enjoy this series so much is that many of the books stand alone even while the personal stories of Macro and especially Cato develop. As a result, if you’ve not read any before and fancy seeing why so many readers love them so much without going all the way back to the beginning, you can dive in almost wherever you wish and then catch up at your own pace. Invictus is one book in the series that stands alone very well, with the one proviso that you’ll learn quite a bit more about what’s been going on in Cato’s private life.

Cato and Macro have arrived back in Rome from Britannia, expecting to be held to account for the fierce fighting and severe losses suffered by the Roman army on those stubborn islands. But instead the two men get caught up in the Emperor Claudius’ triumph celebrating the capture of famous chieftain Caratacus. The line between traitor and hero is finely drawn in these dangerous times. Plots are rife in Rome as the power struggle rages full ahead over the succession to the imperial throne and, not for the first time, Cato and Macro are assigned sides. Before they can draw breath, they are sent off to Hispania to take a leading role in a campaign to subdue a local rebellion that threatens to take over the emperor’s silver mines. The very stability of the region is at stake but, never mind that, Claudius’ silver is at risk.

I have been looking forward to reading Invictus ever since the publication last year of Britannia, the previous novel in this much loved series.

Brilliant as ever. My two heroes Macro and Cato up to their necks in blood and sweat, as usual. The characters come to life. Such is the great writing Simon Scarrow.

It's exciting read and keeps me gripped from the first page til the last

I've read all these books, and can't wait for the next one!

Having read all the books in this series I always look forward to the next novel. This latest edition did not disappoint and is full of the drama,comedy and action sequences that I have come to enjoy.
My only niggle with this latest edition is that sections of the plot remain unresolved and the book does not stand alone as the the previous books do. The last line of the the book should be " wait for the next exciting episode of Cato and Macros adventures in Rome".
Also the main characters are gradually being modernised with 21st century attitudes to things like slavery and punishment. This seems a shame when Simon Scarrow otherwise puts so much effort into historical accuracy.
Having said all that I very much look forward to the next adventure.

Simon Scarrow can probably write these in his sleep by now. Still a good read, nice to follow Cato and Marco through another adventure. I enjoy reading this series, with all of the subtleties and nuances (or maybe not so subtle) of the Roman Empire. Lots of twists and surprises to the plot here, a very enjoyable read.
SPOILER ALERT- Since when did they call each other 'brother'?

Back to normal business, fighting, intrigue, and bastards like Pulcher...

Story zipped at a good pace, the battle was written authentically, and the change of tide in the battle was expected but even so well received...

More please... And hopefully some Pallas and Vitelius engagements... Love the limit d interaction of Pallas at this stage of the series..

Hail Scarrow.... Another Epic story of the Roman Army in 1st Cen AD. Our Heros Cato and Macro campain in Brittanica yet again, not only Battling the Native Tribes lead by the hated Druids but also Time and the Harsh British Weather. Just Outstandingly Brilliant. I cant wait for the next chapter - INVICTUS. (On Order)

One of son in law's Christmas presents - he loved it, as he did with last year's offering from the same author. I am hoping there's a new one out for Christmas 2017!

Can't tell you what it's about - but who cares when it was well received by the recipient!
