Macro's Bagpuss Moment!

I love this series, it's maintained a fabulous standard of character, story-telling, action and history in almost every single book. Jonathan Keeble, well I think pitchforks would definitely be raised if anyone else tried to voice Macro and Cato now, he really adds to Simon Scarrow's stories. Of course the stars of the show are Macro and Cato who we've followed across Eurasia for years now. They work together like a well-oiled machine and the genesis of Cato from, as Macro so delicately puts it from a 'streak of piss' to the man in command was done superbly.

However, Macro has a lot of miles on the clock, his suspension is starting to creak and his 0-60 time is not quite in Ferrari's territory any more. He's in love with Petronella, the real general in their household and his mind is turning to thoughts of spending time with her, warm fires and retirement. just like a certain old baggy cloth cat. But, he's a soldier at heart and pledges just 'one last campaign'. Despite him being a somewhat grizzled veteran now he is still very much a force of nature and Scarrow sends his two heroes into two diverse adventures that once again test their every ability.

This is stirring stuff again and 'Traitors of Rome' delivers its own thrilling adventures completely while setting the scene for what you would suspect is going to be an absolutely epic campaign to come.

Fantastic

There hasn’t been a bad book in the series. My hope is that Mr. Scarrow stretches it through the Year of the Four Emperors. Either way I highly recommend!
