Summary

The date is AD 15. The German chieftain Arminius has been defeated, one of the lost Roman eagles recovered and thousands of German tribesmen slain. Yet these successes aren't nearly enough for senior centurion Lucius Tullus. Not until Arminius is dead, his old legion's eagle found and the enemy tribes completely vanquished will he rest.

But Arminius - devious, fearless - is burning for revenge of his own. Charismatic as ever, he raises another large tribal army, which will carry the Romans the length and breadth of the land. Soon Tullus finds himself in a cauldron of bloodshed, treachery and danger. His mission to retrieve his legion's eagle will be his most perilous yet....

Another Cracker

The final installment of the eagles trilogy is well worth it. Another great addition to many other Ben Kane books

perfection in writing.

the author is one of the best and I have read many books written by him. Historical fact mingled with a little fiction is perfect.

Good but not his best work

I love Ben Kane's books, particularly his historical accuracy, realism and characterisation. However, although an enjoyable read, I found this third book a bit like a really long epilogue. Inevitable I guess due to the historical events, but I was as hooked as I normally am with his work. Still good though - just not his usual outstanding level in my view.

Classic Kane

Another great book from Ben, lots of accurate and interesting detail, a sterling storyline and lovable characters means you really are immersed in the Roman conquests of Germanica. A Hugh recommend to everyone and I cannot wait for the next two.

He did it again

What did you like most about Eagles in the Storm?

The story was gritty and the descriptions of the battles are amazingly detailed

What was one of the most memorable moments of Eagles in the Storm?

Tubero's Tent I was trying not to laugh out loud while lying in bed and waking the wife.

What does David Rintoul bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

The personalities of the characters were really brought to life but David.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I wish I had the time to listen to the whole book at once. I never wanted to turn it off.

Any additional comments?

Another great book by Ben and I hope there is another trilogy in the works for next year. No pressure ben but I'm hooked on your writing, from Hanno to Tullus the adventures have been memorable.

Great to the last word

Another great Ben Kane series! The emotions of the previous two novels come to a perfect climax. Would recommend to anyone regardless of being into Roman History or not as the series had great characters and vivid battle scenes.

Great books

Wonderful series, the writer does an excellent job of immersing the reader in the era. Also very laudable for no moral grandstanding and trying to inject modern sensibilities into the story. It is not nihilistically amoral but treats the characters/factions as very human, with actions both admirable and shameful. Big thanks to the author for the good work.

Good sword and sandals epic

Interesting period in history for the Roman army. After the disaster in the Teutonbourg forest.....the Roman Legions counterattack the Germanic tribes responsible.
