Publisher's Summary

If you don't know Simon Scarrow, you don't know Rome!
The Blood Crows is the enthralling twelfth novel in Simon Scarrow's best-selling Eagles of the Empire series. A must-read for fans of Bernard Cornwell.
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.

Macro & Cato at their Best!

AS far as historical novels go this is the best I have listened to.

I love the depth within Cato's character. He is ruthless but shows some empathy to the people he is often forced to kill


What does Jonathan Keeble bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

The battle scenes are really brought to life with the speed change in the narrators voice


Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

none


Any additional comments?

Having read a lot of Simon Scarrow's work I was already a fan , but listening to the story rather than reading gave it a third dimension.

It's been a long "Bromance"!

This is a long series of stories. We've trudged across the Empire with Cato and Macro. I felt that the previous couple of books were a bit formulaic, and I was unsure whether to continue with this one. Glad I did. I think I mainly buy these books for the action. There's plenty of top quality blood and guts in this episode.
