Customer Review

on 18 January 2012
I am a big fan of Simon Scarrow's Eagle series and without giving away too much of the plot, I was initially a little worried that this book might be boring, being that its titled Praetorian and will be based in Rome rather than on the boundaries of Rome fighting the barbarian hordes. However my fears were wrong.

What Praetorian has to offer instead is the ability to keep you on your toes with the twists and turns of conspiracies that circle Rome and the imperial family. Scarrow does very well to keep you guessing who the real enemy is, as Macro and Cato are faced with enemies not on the otherside of a shield wall but from within their own ranks. And in this book, by the end, all is not what it seems.

Scarrow has always managed to write great battle scenes, giving you enough information to set the scene but not too much to bore you or prevent your imagination taking place. With Praetorian, Scarrow manages to cleverly interweave these battle scenes into the book to provide these essential scenes we love to see Cato and Macro in.

Throughout the book, you can't wait for the climax that is built up and when it comes you are not disappointed. By the end of the book, we are given insight into what bestows Cato and Macro and I have a feeling that the next book will be even greater.

I would say this book is unlike all the others in the series and some may be put off, however I thoroughly enjoyed it but I am also happy to see where Cato and Macro are going in the next book and I can't wait to read it.

Thanks Mr Scarrow
