This review is from: The Siege: Agent of Rome 1 (Hardcover)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
A thoroughly engrossing read. A young inexperienced "centurian" is tasked with defending a fort, with its vital food and water supplies. When he arrives the remaining legionaries are dishevelled, indisciplined, and few in number. With the aid of a few senior ranks he begins to restore military order and prepares for the impending enemy onslaught. They are heavily outnumbered and eventually battle commences - I won't spoil the story by describing the battle.
However, the writing style is engaging, character build is thorough, and the majority of the book covers only a few days. I found the storyline compelling, with a few sub-plots that enhanced the whole.
Not usually drawn to historical novels I am really pleased that I decided to read Agent of Rome The Siege, and recommend it to all,
