A new book in Simon Scarrow's series about the Roman army is always a joy
Rollicking good fun
[Simon Scarrow] blends together historical facts and characters to create a book that simply cannot be put down... Highly recommended
A satisfyingly bloodthirsty, bawdy romp...perfect for Bernard Cornwell addicts who will relish its historical detail and fast-paced action. Storming stuff
Scarrow's [novels] rank with the best
Gripping... ferocious and compelling, it is a story of blood, romance and sacrifice
Praise for Simon Scarrow: 'I really don't need this kind of competition... It's a great read'
