Salve, Legio XIV . . . . .
on 24 August 2016
In the saga Spear of Crom, I found a book that cost me several hours of lost sleep.
I started reading at about 9:00 am and could not put it down until 3:00 am the next morning. Just could not put it down.
Set during the Conquest of a supposedly conquered Brittania, the characters of the Legio XIV roar out in defiance at the Druid led Barbarian tribes.
The plot twists and turns unexpectedly but with credibility.
Battle is joined between Roman forces and Brittanic tribes where the lines of Good and Evil are greyed by complicated loyalties.
In the Battles, description is graphic and accurate. The confusion, the fear, the unleashed strength, the soul sapping aftermath . . . it's all there in full detail, woven into colourful narrative.
I'll be eagerly awaiting the sequel to Spear of Crom .
