While centurions Macro and Cato are returning to Rome from a harrowing campaign against the Parthians, their transport ship is almost capsized by a tidal wave. They barely make it to the port of Matala in Crete, where they are stunned to find a devastated town. An earthquake has struck the island, destroying its cities and killing thousands. In the chaotic aftermath, large bands of the island's slaves begin to revolt and the local bandits, taking advantage of the slave rebellion, urge the Cretans to overthrow the Roman administration.

When the local governor of the province hears that Macro and Cato have arrived on the island, he summons them at once. With many of the island's troops either killed or wounded during the earthquake, the governor calls on these experienced Roman officers for help. Can Macro and Cato move swiftly enough to counter the rebellion before it sweeps the Romans from the island?

    " I really enjoyed the first few Simon Scarrow books about Macro and Cato. Squarely in the Bernard Cornwell historic adventure genre, nothing ground-breaking, but good fun and well crafted. But the latest ones are feeling a bit tired and formulaic. By-the-numbers even. I'll keep reading, but the series is not as compelling as it once was. "

    " Really enjoyed book 9 of Simon Scarrow's "Eagle Series". Highly recommend this series to lovers of historical fiction. Two more books left to go. I'd love to see the books adapted for TV. "
