    " Exciting and fast moving and entertainiing book brings Roman soldiering to life and explore the ralationships between those at the top of the military and those at the bottom and how even those at the lower racks can often be more astute and clever in battle plans than those paid to create them. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Richard | 1/28/2014

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

    " A very moving story about the Roman conquest. When it comes to winning there is good and bad side, there are only winners and losers. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Andy Terrel | 6/8/2013

    " 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. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Claire Worsham | 5/16/2013

    " So far, this is an amazing book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jane | 2/28/2013

    " Never a moment to stop and take a breathe with these two characters. Fast paced as usual and a great read to boot. Showing us yet more of the ancient Roman Empire and the fighting style of yet another enemy,fascinating stuff. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Pete McBride | 8/23/2012

    " I really wanted to like this book, but... characters very underdeveloped left me not interested and not able to Finnish after reading half way though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sue Butcher | 6/8/2012

    " This wasn't my usual genre but I enjoyed it because it was different. Brilliant historical research, with good descriptions and summaries of the era. Battlefields came alive and characters were believable and authentic. "
