Centurion Marco of the Roman army realizes that Emperor Claudius's invasion of Britain 43 A.D. will be their toughest campaign yet, a conviction that is enforced by a sinister organization's efforts to assassinate legion men.

McMillan Palgrave
When Centurion Macro and his young subordinate, Optio Cato arrive on the shores of Britain to take part in the Emperor Claudius' invasion in AD 43, Macro knows the desperately outnumbered Roman army will be facing one of the toughest campaigns ever. Meanwhile, a sinister organization is secretly betraying the brave men of the legions. When assassination rumors coincide with the Emperor's arrival, the soldiers realize they are up against a force more ruthless than the Britons, and that time is running out if they are to prevent Claudius's glorious victory from turning to disaster.

Book 2 of Scarrow's Eagle series. Macro and Cato get their legion to England but there is a traitor in their camp and everyone seems to have a secret agenda! The Emperor Claudius is to arrive and lead the legions to victory over the fierce Britons, but there is a plot to assassinate the Emperor. The drama continues! The last sentence of the book and Macro wants to introduce Cato to a local gal he has met - her name is Boudicca. If you know anything about the Romans in Britain, you know about Boudicca! Great series, easy reading, not sure about the historical accuracy but the author is a historian and he adds plenty of exciting fiction to the tale.

Excellent, fast paced, makes everything else seem slow and dull. Lots of action, good story line.

Macro, Cato and Vespasian are back in another rousing adventure in Britain, 43AD.

This time Emperor Claudius shows up to lead the troops, Vespasian's wife is keeping secrets and Cato gets himself and Macro involved in the political intrigues of the emperors court.

There were enough battles, fights and intrigues to keep the book moving at a steady pace and keep my attention.

Fleshes out a very thin record of the second Roman invasion of Britain in a creatively entertaining but reasonably accurate tale.
The politics and military detail are authentic. The sub-plots are imaginative amusement.
