Due to an error this being starred as a four star when it should be a five star. My bad! However you are in for five star action. This is one of the best I prefer the stories where Cato's brains match Macros' fighting skills. Set in Rome with Imperial intrigue and assassination conspiracies for our boys to sort out. And they do. Plenty of fights, lots of gore, imagine it in the cinema. WOW! Read and enjoy Sorry Simon I didn't hit the final star properly. I will be more careful to give you your proper due with next eagerly anticipated one.

I like Scarrow's well drawn and fleshed out characters, the chalk and cheese legionaries Cato and Macro and have been a fan since Under the Eagle. Scarrow's ability to richly describe the backbreaking and violent daily life of the Roman legionary is well done throughout the Eagle series and to this he now adds the complex political intrigue at the end of the reign of Claudius as well.

However, Scarrow hasn't let up on the blood and guts in this book. You can still hear the clash of sword on sword, the screams of the injured and dying, the smell of blood and sweat and the immediacy, proximity, desperation and tension of the fights. This is Scarrow at his descriptive best.

Rome is starving and the overt and covert infighting now taking place in the first family and their supporters in the Roman civil service is now coming to a head and this is one Narcissus will loose eventually to his rival Pallas. Cato and Macro need to get out and away from this and the resolution to Praetorian gives them the opportunity to escape the upcoming infighting that was synonymous with regime change, with the added bonus of Cato earning a `get out of jail' card from Nero along the way as well.

I can't wait for the next three or four books in the series, let alone book XII, as there is so much potential still to be tapped.

A welcome addition to the series, an enjoyable read.

Another hit for Simon Scarrow, at least as far as I'm concened. Macro and Cato are in Rome, working under cover for the nasty Narcissus, trying to unearth a plot to kill the Emperor. If you ever saw the TV series I Claudius, or read the Rupert Graves book, then you will already have a feel for the period, and Scarrow does it full justice in this book. The only problem I found (and why I only give it 4 stars and not 5) is that I worked out the plot way ahead of the heroes. If you are a Scarrow fan then you'll be happy with this story.

I started it and finish it. But the story line is not amongst the best in Simon Carrow books which I enjoy reading. There were too much detective work rather than than action

Another excellent book by Simon Scarrow who continues to make the principle characters come to life. The legion series is highly recommended.
