“A rip-roaring, thoroughly entertaining tale of swashbuckling adventure from one of the most exciting writers of historical fiction.”- Daily Record (Scotland)“Scarrow manages to summon up all the glory and the gore that characterized life in the Roman legions. Outstanding military history from a relatively new master of the genre.”- Booklist“A combustible concoction of intrigue, treachery, and violence. Series fans will welcome Scarrow’s intense action, beguiling characters, and authentic detail.”- Publishers Weekly “Scarrow again provides a vivid sense of history and believable scenes of maritime action. His righteous but flawed protagonists are winning heroes.”- Kirkus Reviews
