This review is from: The Eagle's Conquest (Eagles of the Empire 2) (Paperback)
Following straight on from the first book we find the characters, Macro and Cato on British soil with the legions awaiting the next movements in the invasion. Battles and skirmishes by the bucket load, all written in a fast paced way, giving the reader a sense of the tension and melee of battle.
There are more revelations of plots and sub plots from all the various characters, with the consequences of their actions played out and still providing unexpected surprises and intrigue. There are plenty of twists and turns in the lives of Macro and Cato too.
Again the author gives the reader a real sense of the life in the Roman legions. By including such rich characters as Vespasian and Vitellius the reader is given a top quality book.
The book goes through to the victory and gain of Camulodunum, and of course the path to that point is littered with political and personal games.
Excellent 2nd book of an excellent series; highly enjoyable.
