Publisher's Summary

A gripping new novel featuring Roman army officers Macro and Cato on their most dangerous mission yet. It's the first century AD and the Roman Empire faces a new threat from its long-standing enemy, Parthia. With Parthia vying for control of Palmyra - an officially neutral kingdom - the Governor of Syria dispatches experienced officers Macro and Cato, and a small task force, to protect Palmyra's borders from invasion. But the Roman army's presence in Palmyra prompts Parthia to amass its armies for war. After numerous tough battles and a great loss of life, Rome conquers the enemy. But then a misguided general follows the retreating troops too far into Parthia and danger looms once more...

I enjoyed it

Okay none of the characters or plot are going to be a surprising however the reading is very enjoyable. Some of the recurring rounds of battle could have been edited out and the tension that would have really brought the book to life was missing. Yet it pottered along and much as it looks like I'm not selling this very well I can only add I would choose another book in this series.

Preferred the previous reader

Decent book, but I've become used to the previous voices of Macro and Kato so the change irritated me a little.
