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...

Another great one
I bought this book on Hardback a few weeks ago, if you enjoy the series it's another damn good book, intelligent fight scenes well choreographed, subterfuge and political plots, and questioning morals. Throughout the series the "enemies" are always questionably good, Rome is seen as the "home team" but throughout Cato always understands the plights of the natives. Another epic book for my favourite romans Macro and Cato, cannot wait for the next one
Poor - Is Simon getting bored?
Fiji g interesting happened in this book and the pace recently has been so slow. Is Simon dragging this series on to 20 books maybe?
