Satisfying and enjoyable read...standard for the series, but above average for the genre,
This review is from: Praetorian (Eagles of the Empire 11) (Paperback)
An urban setting of Claudian Rome for our heroes this time around. Solid, believable characters ( I liked, Cestius the Viminal gang leader , and the 'wet-behind-the-ears-and-cocky' Fuscius, the Praetorian optio) mixed up with a fairly standard plot ( grain shortage, Republican and possibly inter-imperial family plots ) and infiltration of elite military unit by real professionals, gives an easily readable and enjoyable book.
Scarrow's writing sets him above the pack, far better than the likes of Fabbri or Kane, but not yet with Sidebottom, Duggan or Shipway.
Not quite as good as "Legion", but enjoyable and satisfying. Looking forward to being back in Britannia for the next one !
