Product Description

IF YOU DON'T KNOW SIMON SCARROW, YOU DON'T KNOW ROME!

The Sunday Times besteseller. INVICTUS is a gripping, authentic and exciting novel of the Roman army from bestselling author Simon Scarrow. Not to be missed by readers of Conn Iggulden and Bernard Cornwell.

It is AD 54. The soldiers of the Roman army patrol a growing Empire, from the Mediterranean to the North Sea, from the Atlantic to the banks of the Nile. Rome brutally enforces its rule, and its legions are the most efficient and aggressive fighting force in the world. Two battle-scarred veterans of this army, Prefect Cato and Centurion Macro, have survived years of campaigning in Britannia and have been recalled to Rome. Their time in the teeming, dangerously political city is short, and soon they are travelling with the Praetorian Guard to Spain, a restless colony where simmering tension in the face of Roman rule is aggravated by bitter rivalry amongst the natives. The challenges that face two old friends and their comrades in arms are unlike any they have seen before - in a land that declares itself unconquerable...

3.0 out of 5 stars With all the due respect... 18 December 2016
By M. Karapetyan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Well, to start with, I would like to say that I am a huge fan of historical fiction and Simon's books have always given me the right feeling about the times and the atmosphere his books meant to express. And I am truly grateful for the amazing time I had when I was reading all of his works. Having read the latest book in Macro and Cato's series, however, I found myself in a strange mood of being somehow let down. Nevertheless, I am not going to criticise the book and I am definitely not going to criticise Simon who I consider to be one of the greatest writers in this genre. What I am going to do is to kindly ask Simon to add in his next book some more true sense of brotherhood between Cato and Macro which could be more vividly displayed in a greater scene of battle (better more than one), some more soldiering and achievements, some more wisdom to both of our characters. I would also ask not to kill anybody (like it happened to Julia) without a good reason or captivating consequences. Her betrayal also seemed to me a bit unexplainable...
5.0 out of 5 stars A nice addition to the stories of Macro and Cato 4 April 2017
By N. Trachta - Published on Amazon.com

Ahhhh, a new Macro and Cato book, always something I enjoy. Mr. Scarrow has really captured me with these two. What I was waiting to see was how Mr. Scarrow would handle Macro and Cato with Britannia being pretty wrapped up at least until Macro's old girlfriend gets upset; ok, back to Praetorians!
Macro's and Cato's second round with the Praetorians was better than the first one. While I enjoyed the political intrigue the first time around (a little more of a Cato thing) the open combat in this one is outstanding. Rather than being a simple battle (is it ever for Macro and Cato) there's a little intrigue, a nice open field battle, with a good siege component that reminded me of a mixture of Rorkes Drift and WWI (sorry, you need to read to possibly understand the connection). While I don't expect Macro and Cato's opponents to always be great individuals, this one was a nice addition. All said, Mr. Scarrow seems to be on a nice upswing with Macro and Cato and I only ask one question, what's next?!?
3.0 out of 5 stars Cato wins again but it is getting boring 30 March 2017
By Ebquillen - Published on Amazon.com

I have been a fan of this series for many years but the repetitive nature of Cato and Macro's victories against the odds (usually due to some brilliant insight by Cato) is getting very old. There is no dramatic tension as the reader always knows that nothing will happen to the heroes. Also, as one who has served in the army, I have frequently noted that Cato is one lousy senior officer. In this book, as the cohort is heading off into the interior of Spain, he holds an officer call in which he openly berates some of his officers in front of his other officers. No senior officer worth his beans would ever do anything like that and would instead speak to subordinates privately if there were an issue. I was kind of disappointed in this book even though I was pleased that Scarrow is not doing the typical "British author of Roman history books" by placing nearly every novel in Britain!.

Excellent book, excellent service, excellent product.
Scarrow did well on this one and I can't get enough of Macro and his bluntness. Some predictable circumstances at times, but all in all the series still rocks.
2.0 out of 5 stars Seies Getting Repititious 9 February 2017
By D. Frey - Published on Amazon.com

This series is getting boring and repetitious. Earlier installments were interesting and had a sense of place and time. Now it's let's send Cato and Macro someplace where they'll be placed under the command of someone who wants to kill them; have battle scene every 50 pages involving narrow escapes and outrageous feats on the part of our heros; and conclude with their once again escaping with their lives. Read this only if you have to be able to say that you've read every book in the series.
