The Legion (Eagles of the Empire 10)

THE LEGION is the action-packed tenth novel in Simon Scarrow’s bestselling Eagles of the Empire series. Perfect for fans of Bernard Cornwell.

When the actions of a rebel gladiator in Egypt threaten the stability of the Roman Empire, Prefect Cato and Centurion Macro know he must be stopped. The locals are holding the Romans responsible for the attacks and Ajax’s crew have been making along the coast and now Egypt is dangerously volatile.

Tasked with tracking and defeating the renegade, Cato and Macro are soon hot on Ajax’s trail, determined to destroy the enemy. But will the strength of a psychotically fatalist gladiator and his new-found allies, hell-bent on destruction, defeat the Roman warriors?
