Loved this book even though it does start a little slowly. But I guess with a new series it takes a little while to get to know the main characters in the story.
And once again we find the prominent character to be the back bone of the legions..a centurion named Tullus. A man who is hard but thinks of his men often. One death in his cohort to him is one too many.
Also, throughout the pages the reader is given multiple view points from the other main protagonists such as Arminius and Varus.
To go into too much detail about the story would be giving too much away but suffice to say that it is a cracking read and I eagerly await the following instalments.
If you have never read Ben Kane before, this would be a good place to begin.Eagles at War: (Eagles of Rome 1)
