Centurion ingår i Simon Scarrows populära Silverörnserie om det romerska riket. I sällskap av officerarna Macro och Cato får läsaren i dessa böcker vara med om fälttåg genom de mörka germanska skogarna, invasionen av de brittiska öarna, belägringen av Jerusalem och mycket mer. I denna del går färden österut.Mellan de två stormakterna Rom och Parthien ligger det lilla ökenriket Palmyra. Partherna, Roms fiende i öst, vill få kontroll över Palmyra för att stärka sin makt och på sikt invadera de romerska provinserna i öst. När Palmyras kungahus plötsligt skakas av öppen revolt skickas Macro och Cato tillsammans med en liten insatsstyrka ut för att försvara kungen och hans närmaste. Men när parthernafår kännedom om den romerska truppens närvaro, börjar de mobilisera för ett storskaligt krig. Det visar sig snart att partherna inte är den enda fiende somCato och Macro ställs inför. Vägen till fred är mer krävande och farofylld än någonsin. Romarrikets framtid står på spel.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 John Mathine | 2/16/2014

    " Way too right for me, kooky right. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Harry Babin | 1/25/2014

    " It goes to show what having the most experienced and well armed force gets you. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rex Fuller | 1/22/2014

    " Brilliant imagining of an entirely plausible "Time of Suckage." Ringo has not only the mindset but the slang and cadence of Army warrior-speak right. Thoroughly entertaining and more than worth the reading time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Joshua Merrick | 1/20/2014

    " Like a modern version of Emergence, sort of - except this guy had a little more to work with and the scenario leading to the desolation was, well different (and he had access to lots and lots and lots of weapons and equipment and vehicles and ...) Fun, interesting, but still probably not going on my 'favorites' shelf. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa Hunt | 1/20/2014

    " Oh, wow! I loved this book. I think it's because it's the down hard and dirty (and short) of what Weber takes many tedious staff meetings to describe. And it's more enjoyable, with attitude and spirit. Go out and loot! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Exrex | 1/15/2014

    " Quite fun, definitely written from a military point of view. The story of what happens when a serious plague hits the world and how some places cope better than others. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeff Bishop | 1/6/2014

    " I enjoyed this book, but anyone with a left-liberal mindset will probably dislike it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Terry | 12/30/2013

    " Different and awesome. Such awesome sarcastic humor. Great story. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jarod | 12/23/2013

    " Really enjoyed the book. Very salty language. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 ReoDon | 12/18/2013

    " A little heavy on the Fox News rhetoric...but OK overall. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Richard Radgoski | 11/19/2013

    " Has a blog point of view and the speaker goes off on many tangents. I enjoyed it but be prepared to meander on those tangents so you understand the point the speaker is making. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kmfurr | 9/28/2013

    " EXCELLENT read -- 10 years in the future, a worldwide plague wreaks havoc, people keep yakking about global warming even as an Ice Age sets in, an incompetent Hillary Clinton-type is president, and our hero is fighting his way through the Mideast ... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John | 9/4/2013

    " I think this book is a classic. I read this novel while I was in Afghanistan. EVERYTHING they talk about is SO characteristic of the US military and the government. Read this book and think, "Yeah, I could see this happening..." "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Michael | 8/22/2013

    " An interesting premise and intriguing factoids marred by excessive unrealistic political wranglings. I must say reading this during a natural disaster was surreal. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ben Eiynk | 8/9/2013

    " No aliens in this one... a near-future 'what if' with a fair amount of political/social perspective. Written blog-like from the perspective of a soldier left guarding a pile of military equipment in Iran after the world goes to hell. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laurie | 3/10/2013

    " another one of those "what if" scenarios that I enjoy so much. As always, it's laid out in a way that's believable, characters I enjoy. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bill | 3/19/2012

    " The importance of a governments reaction to a flu epidemic is going to be incalculable. The 1918 flu and it rapid spread is nothing compared to the potential for an epidemic today. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ken | 3/14/2012

    " This book ought to piss off all the liberals who read it. I.m sure they'll all down-rate it; too close to the truth. So far, no mention of career politicians or stopping foreign aid. More later when I finish. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Becky | 1/14/2011

    " Cato once again proving himself worthy of his rapid promotion. A gritty tale in the desert surrounding palmyra. This is a great series of books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Richard | 12/25/2010

    " The book which grabbed me for the whole ancient warfare genre. Captivating story with, while perhaps not always likeable, interesting and deep characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tomas | 12/20/2009

    " another great part of the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elfear | 11/30/2009

    " i was very annoyed by the non-time period language and slang. honestly, roman soldiers during BC something saying 'sunshine'? it just does not work. overall quite interesting though "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ranjit1george | 11/10/2009

    " Alas, I realised that this was part 8 of a big series AFTER I had completed the novel. Well written. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michael | 1/11/2009

    " mnot a bad read - though the character of Macro annoys me somewhat...the short story about Macro's early life puts the character in better perspective - worth reading that first "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nigel | 10/16/2008

    " Scarrow is getting as good as the best - Cornwell that is. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Andy | 7/28/2008

    " Not my favorite historical fiction. The read was fun at times, but too many elements were cliched or lackluster. The book didn't make me really relate with the characters or make me feel like I was in the place. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara | 5/12/2008

    " Gripping story, didn't want to put it down, as usual! Macro & Cato are sent to help the Palmyran King in the middle of the desert. This book introduces the Parthians and bows & arrows! It was quite interesting to come across an army which was a challenge for our friends. "
