Publisher's Summary

Rome, AD 41. Caligula has been assassinated and the Praetorian Guard have proclaimed Claudius Emperor - but his position is precarious. His three freedmen, Narcissus, Pallas and Callistus, must find a way to manufacture a quick victory - but how?

Pallas has the answer: retrieve the Eagle of the Seventeenth, lost nearly 40 years before. Who but Vespasian could lead a dangerous mission into the gloomy forests of Germania?

Accompanied by a small band of cavalry, Vespasian and his brother try to pick up the trail of the Eagle. In search of the Eagle and the truth, whilst being pursued by barbarians, Vespasian must battle his way to the shores of Britannia. Yet can he escape his own Emperor's wrath?

    Story
    "glad I didn't get the whole series"

    I'm a big fan of the narrator (from the 100 year old man/redemption road) but this one was a bit of a let down. The story jumps fron one silly fight scene to the next with little to connect them, and drags out exposition of people motives in place of actual storytelling. I particularly disliked the thug friend character, who seemed to be there mostly for crude jokes but then occasionally chirped up from nowhere with a bit if vital information or insight when the at best thin pace began to drag

    "Excellent!"

    If you like historical fiction this is a wonderful addition to the genre. Basically it is about the rise of Vespasian. It is a great story and the narrator is excellent. Buy it and enjoy!
