      I really, really enjoyed this second book in the Eagle series Simon Scarrow writes very well and both his story and his characters come to life I m very happy I gave this series a chance and am hopng the rest of the series is just as good.

      The Legions brought a chainsaw to a sword fight Someone asked me how could I like Simon Scarrow s novel so much when I know that it s not historical accurate that I should be put off by the swearing in his novels That s exactly the point why I m such a fan of Scarrow s Eagles series He doesn t romanticize war or politics The author doesn t pretend to be historically accurate unlike some authors when there really not The reality is that history can be as dry as the papyrus it was written on.The E [...]

      7 10This was a similar outing to the first novel in the series with the relationship growing stronger between Cato and Macro, the treachery growing stronger within the political ranks and a good number of well described battle sequences.There wasn t much wrong with this novel other than the bits seemed to plod between the battles It was slow to get going but when things kicked off it got going The dialogue was also the same as the first which could be seen as a bit trashy but I quite enjoyed the [...]

      Continua a saga, maravilhosa, da guia Transportando nos para um ambiente m gico e tenebroso, em que, por vezes, se torna dif cil de imaginar como seria a vida nesse passado remoto Hist ria, bem esgalhada, com um bom equil brio entre a a o e a narrativa Venha o pr ximo Obrigado Simon.

      What strikes me most about this book, and to a certain extent the previous book in the series too, is just how different it is to the author s non Roman period fiction.For someone who is routinely trotted out as one of the best authors of Roman fiction, it surprises me just how bland and un engaging a novel Scarrow puts out.For a little context, the first of Scarrow s book that I read was Sword and Scimitar set around the sixteenth century siege of Malta It was ripe with betrayal, battle, blood, [...]

    6. Colin says:

      This book is great It clearly does lack the pondering depth of certain other authors such as Steven Saylor but if you re in the mood for a fun romp, look no further This series in general is one I d equate to Hollywood action films very easy to digest, lots of action, punchy, lively, succinct with a tight overall structure, whilst also scraping by on enough historical depth to remain interesting and immersive It never questions things too deeply and the result it a fun slice of fiction.The two m [...]

      Qu os puedo decir de este libro Lo resumir en una palabra MARAVILLOSO Este tomo comienza con el optio protagonista todav a en la zona de Britania con las legiones junto a su centuri n Macro que se preparan para invadir la isla y convertirla como no puede ser de otra manera en una provincia romana Esto no es spoiler es que la historia oficial fue as Sobre todo me gusto porque vi como mi amado Cato evoluciona y madura a su tiempo porque a pesar de que es un soldado ya algo m s experimentado se not [...]

    8. Graham says:

      As a follow on from Scarrow s first book, UNDER THE EAGLE, which I greatly enjoyed, I found THE EAGLE S CONQUEST something of a letdown I put it down to the old curse of the second novel , whereby it appears that Scarrow found this very difficult to write and that somehow transmutes into it being something of a chore to read.It s really odd, but there s something about this novel that I didn t like, and I can t quite put my finger on it It s certainly an easy read, and action packed, chock full [...]

      The conquest of Britain continues Book picks up where previous one left us with most of characters present Book nicely shows how Cato is adjusting to ilitary life, how he is learning to operate and how his relationship with Macro is evolving.We are treated to few fast paced battles with down and dirty fighting scenes but we also see glimpses of military life outside pitched battles.However Scarrow makes few mistakes in such descriptions For one contrary to popular belief roman warships were not [...]

    10. Robin Carter says:

      This was even better than Simon Scarrow s first book and that s some achievement This time around Cato and Macro are ranged against the Britons, desperately defending their homeland in a series of pitched battles The battle scenes are something else and carry the reader right into the heart of the bloody conflict so that somehow the author manages to make you see, hear, smell and feel the terrified combatants.The characters are wonderful creations and smack of real living and breathing people co [...]

    14. Mayank Agarwal says:

      I enjoyed this book than the previous one This book starts off right where we were left in the previous one The Romans are on their way to conquer the capital of the first Briton tribe We get to see most of the journey from the point of view of our protagonist Cato and his commander Marco, what s fun is the detailed warfare, the battle are full of strategy as well as the melee action The political intrigue while interesting felt weak and predictable I was enjoying the book right till the end wh [...]

    15. Mark Day says:

      The second book of the series has better pacing than the first, but there is no depth of characterization and the prose is downright rigid Mr Scarrow does not provide any real insight into the native population of the era, and what is learned about the Romans is superficial at best If you are looking for a fun but shallow read, this book will suit you This series is not what I look for in historical fiction.

    16. Mark says:

      An exciting read.At a time when anyone can publish a book, it s refreshing to read a story which contains the elements of an excellent tale Namely, the tested formula of believable characters interwoven with an historical narrative The time taken to create the characters has been well spent Cato and Macro s professional and off duty friendship prevails throughout a series of intrigues, battles and everyday legionary life Long may it continue.

    17. Graham Coulson says:

      This the second in Simon Scarrow s series The Eagles was every bit as enjoyable as the first book Well written, but lacking depth, the story makes an entertaining page turner and I m sure that I ll continue on to the third book in the series in due course not immediately perhaps, as I have a yen for something different right now

    18. Luis Sancho says:

      Not a must read Like the first book, this makes a nice light reading, ideal for those times when you don t want to tax your brain Without much attention to detail or fact, the author writes well enough for the reader to want to find out what happens next, even as it becomes obvious.

    19. Connor Ludovissy says:

      A fun novel with lots of little touches that add authenticity to the setting, but shallow characterizations and unimpressive plotting make it less than memorable I ll probably pick up the next one, but I m in no hurry.

    20. Brantley says:

      A very solid and enjoyable bit of historical fiction It does offer a few quirky turns of phrase from the author but the foundations seem well researched A fun read with just the right mix of mystery and battle.

    21. Phil says:

      Excellent plot Gripping storyline Characterisation was a bit stereotyped but otherwise the book is a ripping good read I am sure that it did not set out to be a serious novel and so it should not be judged by those standards.

    22. John Roberts says:

      Better then the first book.

    23. Matthew says:

      Amazing Hnnnggggggg Rome come at me.

    24. Valentin Lica says:

      The conquest of Britain continues with Macro and optio Cato alongside Vespasian.

    25. Patrícia says:

      O Imp rio Romano tem dado azo ao longo dos s culos a grandes obras, com hist rias e personagens inesquec veis, umas vezes, outras nem por isso, mas n o deixa de ser um tema que nunca passa de moda e que tem legi es de f s por todo o mundo Nos ltimos anos t m proliferado autores que t m ganho notoriedade utilizando esta civiliza o como mote, directa ou indirectamente, como o caso de Simon Scarrow e a sua S rie da guia, baseada na vida dos ex rcitos romanos, que tem conseguido os maiores elogios e [...]

    26. Ben Mcbride says:

      The Eagles Conquest is the second book in Simon Scarrows series following Macro the centurion and Cato his optio I read this book straight after the first Under the Eagle and have the whole series waiting to be read on my bookshelf I can assure you that they will be read soon I am a young man myself with an interest in all things academic much like Cato and I find if I was thrown into the Roman legions away from a life of study and security my reaction would be the same Cato struggles to get alo [...]

    27. Mark Harrison says:

      Rollicking good fun Invasion, battles, treachery, valour, extreme violence, tragedy, politics and extreme violence Disengage brain and enjoy the ride.

    28. M.G. Mason says:

      So continues the exploits of Cato, Optio of the sixth century of Legio II Augusta in the attempts to conquer the Britons and battle for acceptance in the legions who looked unkindly on the unusual method by which he became their superior officer.This second novel follows immediately on from the first Under the Eagle and we are thrown into the middle of the war against Caratacus and the Catuvellauni tribe Along for the ride are a few familiar faces Macro the Centurion, Vespasian the Legate, Vitel [...]

    29. Stephen says:

      In Under the Eagle, Simon Scarrow introduced readers to two legionnaires Macro, a grizzled veteran, and Cato, a young bookish sort straight from Rome , a boy made an officer because of his father s influence No one though Cato would make it as a soldier, let alone as a leader of men, but in Germania and the beginning of the invasion of Britain he proved himself Now the Romans are moving further inland, where some scattered tribes are uniting under the Catuvellauni banner, whose leader intends to [...]

    30. Ed says:

      This is the second book in the Roman history series featuring Centurion Macro and his subordinate Optio Cato In this volume, the invasion of Britain, begun the year before is moving forward as the Roman Legions try to capture the major trading center and capitol of the Catuvellauni, Camulodunum, from the Britons and their leader Caratacus The Romans are outnumbered but confident Things become complicated when the Emperor, Claudius, decides to be there for the final battle while an assassination [...]
