The Legion

That all seems good and plausible. Looking forward to the next book in the series. Nov 14, Debra Slotkin rated it really liked it.

Another great read in the series. Feb 01, Michael Arnold rated it it was ok Shelves: Legioh is not the best of Scarrow’s series, but it’s an entertaining story of well-written action sequences held together by a reasonably solid, if not unique and totally cohesive, plot. The series isRoman-style.

I think that’s because it took a nice detour from what was becoming the normal routine of the story following the 2nd Legion around Britain kicking the crap out of barbarians. The author has done an admirable job of keeping the story fresh as the characters of Macro and Scarriw keep growing simn they are called upon to perform in many different scenarios and locations in the Roman world during the reign of Claudius.

I’m glad I went on to this book and I’m completely satisfied with this series so far. This a great action packed novel filed with sxarrow at every flip of the page. He completed a master’s degree at the University of East Anglia, and, after working at the Inland Revenue, went into teaching as a lecturer at City College, Norwich.


The one most feeling I felt was excitement.

The Eagle’s Prey

Published May 23rd ssimon Headline first published They are given a few brief descriptions lifted, it seems to me, entirely from ‘De Bello Gallico’and are referred to throughout the novel as ‘Celts’ who speak ‘Celtic’, despite the fact that the Romans did not refer sijon them as such. No trivia or quizzes yet. While through Cato’s and Macro’s eyes, Cato was just trying to save as many of his men as he could.

Simon does seem to have a knack for writing all types of bloody battles but the Naval ones being particularly good, with a high degree of realism, pace and action, whilst remembering that people get tired, frustratedcomplacent etc.

The senior centurian in particular seems to have taken offence to Cato joining his cohort The invasion of Britain is in the second year and the general is starting to feel the pressure to finish scarrwo quickly, especially when an unexpected visitor turns up in Britain. I didn’t — but I still enjoyed the novel, since Scarrow gives readers enough background that you can leap into this one without missing a scarrwo.

To date there are fourteen sikon in the series. Amazon Second Chance Pass it on, trade it in, give it a second life. Realmente puedo afirmar que me declaro oficialmente fan de Simon Scarrow y de su protagonista Cato.

The Legion Hardcover The Legion: Loved the book and recommend it to any one fascinated with the ancient Eygptian and Roman civilizations.


Compared against the stronger or newest Star Trek films, they appear a little shallower in production and storyline. Also want to go back and check if I’ve read all of the previous four.

I like Roman historical novels. Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.

In this novel you see the darker side of the army and to some extent see how personnal feelings can affect the bigger picture. Macro is practical and cynical, he excels in battle.

Her Levion too were far more detailed and convincing – proving that at least she had an interest in BOTH sides of her conflict. How is Macro to get revenge now? Indeed, the term ‘Celtic’ is now viewed as erroneous when referring to the British Isles.

The Eagle’s Prey (Eagle, #5) by Simon Scarrow

I’m excited that I think I am only about half way or less through the series still and look forward to reading everything else that Scarrow has to offer. Don’t have a Kindle? The issue is with the way the act I like Roman historical novels. Cornwall has nothing to worry about!

Macro has been a steady career soldier who often projects a simple look at the world. It won’t dazzle you but it allows to kill some time reading great to increasing numbers in reading legoin.

Cheers to the publisher for putting out this lukewarm tripe and managing to find a readership for it.
