i couldnt wait for this one and sadly i couldnt put it down when i started reading it. i say sadly because once its gone its gone and your left waiting for the next one!! all 4 of mr dohertys books so far have been brilliant and this is no exception. fast paced and straight into the action from the start its virtually impossible to put down and is a great read. these books are historical fiction based around factual historical events and should be treated as such as the writers have the licence to write about the events as they perceive them. i dont understand gripes about the so called historical facts or whether the maps are accurate because its written as historical fiction. this guy is also well up there with the best authors in this genre already and currently anyone who likes this genre is spoilt for choice with some brilliant authors about. a great time to be into roman history and mr dohertys novels are a splendid edition. cant wait for legionnary 3 but i'll have to!!!
