Britannia, AD 51. For nearly a decade, the Roman Empire has fought to assert its hold over Britannia. But relentless opposition from native tribes led by the fanatical King Caratacus threatens to destroy everything.
Prefect Cato and Centurion Macro are dispatched from Rome to aid the campaign. Placed in command of an outpost in the remote western mountains, they face a challenge even more deadly than the unremitting attacks of barbarian forces. For they must wrench control of the fort from Centurion Quertus, a man who wages a savage personal war and inspires a loyalty in his men above their bond with Rome.
With dangerous enemies on both sides, Cato and Macro face the fight of their lives to bring peace to the most perilous frontier in Europe.

The Blood Crows
A fascinating book which keeps you interested from start finish, provided of course you share an interest with Ancient Rome, it's Empire and the Tribes of Britain. Brutal, vivid and with some truly distinctive prose. If you like Cornwell's Sharpe then I defy you not to get engrossed.
Messrs Cato and Macro are beguiling characters insofar you never know what their next turn will be or for that matter how fate, the Emporer or his advisors will affect them. Don't start with this book otherwise you will miss the first of gems in the series. A true diamond.
What a great book, fast moving and very atmospheric. One of the best Cato and Macro series of stories to date. Can't wait for the next encounter with Caratacus and his Britains.
As ever Simon Scarrow transports me back 2000 years and makes me feel and smell this tale of Marco and Cato. I can't rate the series of books higher
