Publisher Description

The Forgotten Legion fought against almighty odds at the very edge of the known world - and lost.

Now Brennus the Gaul, Tarquinius the Etruscan soothsayer and Romulus, bastard son of a Roman nobleman, are prisoners of Parthia. They dream of escape, but in the brutal fighting which lies ahead, only two will survive.

Meanwhile, Fabiola, Romulus's twin sister, is caught up in the vicious eddies of Roman politics. Hunted by slave catchers she flees, hoping to find her lover, Brutus, bound for Alexandria with Caesar.

Ben Kane's brilliant second novel plunges his characters into a cauldron of war and terror, as Caesar and the Roman Republic hurtle towards their day of reckoning.

Tiring

Having a great interest in all this Roman, I enjoyed Forgotten Legion immensely, and moved on to Silver Eagle with anticipation of another great read. However, after a good start, the flip flop from Romulus's story to Fabiola's becomes tiring and difficult to follow. There is a torrent of butchery and killing and the amazing escapes stretch the imagination a bit far as does the constant foretelling and visions and eventually they become predictable.
On the plus side, these books are an entertaining way to study this period of Rome's history and the authors notes are a great way to sort the history from the story.
I will now try book 3 to see how it all ends however.
