This eventful historical Roman adventure is the 18th episode of the fantastic Eagles of the Empire Cato Macro series from the author, Simon Scarrow.At the beginning of the book you ll find a well drawn map of the Frontier between the Roman Empire and Parthia in the 1st Century, while there s also a great cast list of great historical and superb fictional figures who re featuring in this thrilling Roman historical tale.It s another fast paced and action packed addition to this series, accompanied with great story telling by the author, as well as very believable characters who come all vividly to life within this marvellous Roman adventure.This story is set as from the year, AD 56, and our main protagonists, Prefect Cato and Senior Centurion Macro, find themselves in Tarsus under the leadership of General, Gnaeus Domitius Corbulo, who s also a great Commander, shrewd tactician and hard taskmaster.The story evolves quickly after the marriage celebration of Macro and Petronella, when Cato is summoned by General Corbulo and is sent on a secret diplomatic mission to Parthia to parley for a peace treaty with King Vologases of Parthia, in which he s accompanied with Corbulo s envoy spy, Apollonius of Perga, as well as Cato s new slave, Flaminius, who manages to escape when in Parthia, and several others as escort, while Macro will assume his role as acting Prefect of the garrison of Tarsus.With Macro on a military mission to recapture Thapsis from the rebels with General Corbulo, and Cato underway to Ctesiphon to parley for peace with King Vologases of Parthia, both mission and embassy will encounter treacherous situations, tough battles, and many deaths for Cato and Macro and their men to absorb.What will follow is a tremendous Roman historical tale, where on the one hand General Corbulo with his army and Macro in their midst is trying to turn raw recruits into hardened veterans for when they are needed when war against Parthia will begin, but instead of support he has to endure rebellion and treason that will be dealt with in the only possible way, the Roman way, while on the other hand Cato and Apollonius are facing treachery within their own ranks as well as treason within the court of King Vologases, and this last treachery with enable them to escape from Seleucia and to arrive at Thapsis to quell the mutiny, that s come from within and the rebels, with the remaining loyal Roman troops.Very much recommended, for this book is simply a wonderful addition to this terrific series and that s I like to call it A Superb Cato Macro Roman Sequel Simon Scarrow really does not know how to disappoint his readers this series of well researched but highly readable and gripping novels must score highly with anyone interested in the Roman Empire This one does just that If you haven t started the series, go and find Under the Eagle the first in the series and enjoy the ride. I love Simon scarrow s Cato and macro books and read them all at least once a year, sometimes This book is no exception. Another exciting and well written adventure for Cato and Macro from Mr Scarrow Without spoiling plots etc there are plenty of twists and turns for our heroes to face and conquer.The novel, for me perhaps of a series of tales that intertwine, feels it has reached a crossroads for the main characters so it will be interesting to see the next instalment and as soon as possible please Great book, devoured very quickly and thoroughly enjoyed Thank you. Back with CATO Macro as they continue with adventures through the Roman Empire This is book 18 and a solid worthy read just received couple of days ago Simon Scarrow is a top writer and deserves your attention he sets the pace at the forefront of historical fiction Stonking good read Hope another one in the series comes out soon.
