Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of Centurion, The Gladiator and Praetorian, a new military adventure for battle-hardened centurions Macro and Cato, fighting for the Empire in Britannia. For nearly 10 years, the Roman Empire has fought ceaselessly to strengthen its hold over Britannia. But opposition from native tribes led by the ruthless warrior Caratacus threatens to destroy everything. Prefect Cato and Centurion Macro are summoned by Governor Ostorius to Londinium.
Tasked with leading a newly formed cavalry cohort into the heartland of Wales, they must destroy the growing resistance. But with Caratacus hatching increasingly ambitious plans and disorder threatening from within Macro and Cato's own ranks, this final test will push the soldiers to their limits. And if they do not emerge as victors, the Emperor Claudius's rule may be at stake, and the very foundations of the Roman Empire could be shattered irrevocably.

Macro & Cato at their Best!

Where does The Blood Crows rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

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


Who was your favorite character and why?

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.
