It's 44 AD, and Vespasian and the Second Legion are forging ahead in their campaign to seize the south-west of Britain. Macro and newly appointed centurion Cato are ordered to provide Verica, ruler of the Atrebatans, with an army. They must train his tribal levies into a force that can protect him and take on the increasingly ambitious raids that the enemy is launching. But despite the Atrebatans' official allegiance to Rome, open revolt is brewing, for many want to resist the Roman invaders.

Book 4 in Scarrow's Eagle series. The Romans are in England some of the local tribes accept their presence - most of the tribes do not! One tribe asks to be trained in Roman military tactics - trained and armed as Legionnaires (good idea?) Macro & Cato get assigned that task as Roman politics continue to infiltrate the British Legions. Great series, fast paced, good read.

I think with book number four Scarrow has improved his storytelling enough to give a 4 star.
I have always liked Macro and Cato. They are a great team and their adventures in Britain are great fun with some wonderful history as their setting.

Terrific !!! Fast Paced, interesting story line, a few chuckles, good depiction of the Roman Legion in Britain in the early years when Vespasian was there, but not yet in charge. Contains quite a bit of fighting and violence, but that was why the Romans were there, to conquer the Britains.
