Publisher's Summary

Invictus is a gripping, authentic and exciting audiobook of the Roman army from best-selling author Simon Scarrow. Not to be missed by fans of Conn Iggulden and Bernard Cornwell.
It is AD 54. The soldiers of the Roman army patrol a growing empire from the Mediterranean to the North Sea, from the Atlantic to the banks of the Nile. Rome brutally enforces its rule, and its legions are the most efficient and aggressive fighting force in the world. Two battle-scarred veterans of this army, Prefect Cato and Centurion Macro, have survived years of campaigning in Britannia and have been recalled to Rome.
Their time in the teeming, dangerously political city is short, and soon they are travelling with the Praetorian Guard to Spain, a restless colony where simmering tension in the face of Roman rule is aggravated by bitter rivalry amongst the natives. The challenges that face two old friends and their comrades in arms are unlike any they have seen before - in a land that declares itself unconquerable.

Best Scarrow yet

Still enjoyable, witty and gripping but with new plot and character complexity and an outstanding performance by Jonathan Keeble who brings an extraordinary James Mason back from the dead cameo for the surgeon. Great stuff.

moral dilemma

I have listened to the whole series and loved them. This is again an excellent story.. but ... I struggle to support the Romans cause.
Good soldiers manipulated by politicians. Does it sound familiar?
Cat's conscience is troubling him.
