Praise for Simon Scarrow's Roman Legion series:
"I really don't need this kind of competition." --Bernard Cornwell
"Scarrow manages to summon up all the glory and the gore that characterized life in the Roman legions. Outstanding . . . a new master of the genre." --"Booklist"
"A combustible concoction of intrigue, treachery, and violence . . . Scarrow's combat is brutal and sanguinary; his imperial politics are almost as sharp." --"Publishers Weekly"
"Scarrow again provides a vivid sense of history and believable scenes of maritime action. His righteous but flawed protagonists are winning heroes." --"Kirkus Reviews"
"All the hallmarks of Bernard Cornwell at his best." --"Oxford Times"
"Rollicking good fun." --"Mail on Sunday"
"A macho, all-action book . . . if there's a battle [you'll] be in the thick of it, and the fact that you're also getting a few modules worth of ancient history is a bonus."
Praise for "The Zealot: "
"A riveting novel enhanced with accurate historical detail deftly interwoven into a superbly crafted story of the Rome Empire. Very highly recommended and entertaining reading." --"Mason's Bookshelf"show more
