Product description

Review

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

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

Gripping and moving (The Times)

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)

Ferocious and compelling (Daily Express)

A Rome full of HOUSE OF CARDS treachery... Roman soldiering at its very best - even by Scarrow's high standards - in this winning chunk of historical fiction (Sunday Sport)

Rollicking good fun (Mail on Sunday)

A fast-moving and exceptionally well-paced historical thriller (BBC History Magazine)

Combines considerable scholarship in Roman history with great story-telling skills, vividly drawn, sympathetic characters, and a touch of humour, as well as all-action battle scenes (East Anglian Daily Times)

The third in Scarrow's historical series... and it's probably the best... Rollicking good fun (Mail on Sunday)

Review of the series (followed by a review of this book):
This series of books is based around the adventures of two men - Macro and Cato. Macro is a soldier through and through; he has spent his life in the army and is a centurion when we first meet him in the first book. In that book we also meet Cato who joins the legion as a new recruit, although he seems an unlikely candidate for a soldier. The series goes on to relate their many adventures and the relationship between them. Most of the stories are based - sometimes loosely - on real events and people, with a healthy dose of artistic license.
As far as I can tell the historical detail and facts are accurate, and the writing is generally engaging. There are criticisms in other reviews about the authors use of 'modern' slang; I know what they mean, but would we identify with 'roman' slang? For me, it is not a problem, I am not a fan of trying to invent historical language, it is too easy to fall into the 'ye olde shoppe' trap!
Overall, the series is very readable, and rolls along at a good pace. Like some other historical series, it doesn't do to try and fit the events into a timeline, as it soon becomes clear that the two men could not have done everything they do in one lifetime, but that doesn't detract from a fun series. Two niggles:the formatting annoys me in that the gaps between paragraphs are too long, particularly where there are long conversations, and they are a little over-priced.
Review of this book:
The story carries on directly from the previous volume; Macro and Cato are still in Briton, consolidating Rome's hold on the island. The story centres around efforts to rescue the family of the Roman commander from the Druids. It is well paced and an entertaining read.

These are books you just can't put down the characters are completely believable the stories are credible and are backed by an excellent historical knowledge of the Romans in Britain at the time of the emperor Claudius.
Entertaining and educational what more could you want from a book.

OK, this is not fact, it is a fiction, but a really good one. I am determined to read all the Scarrow books about Macro and Cato in order and one after another. So am now on number 4.
I wish i had discovered them earlier, then holidays past would have been even more enjoyable.
