Nonstop Action June 23 2010
By Elizabeth McBrearty - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is the second in the series, and, as it picks up almost exactly where the first volume ends, you should read the previous volume,"Wounds of Honour," before you start this one. The blurb summarizes the setting quite accurately, so I won't add anything, but I will say that I devoured this offering in one sitting. By the time I finished, I felt that I had been fighting all those barbarians myself. Great for anyone who likes Roman military fiction.

Back to the Wall, Hadrian's Wall, that is Jan. 30 2012
By Charles F. Kartman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Mr. Riches continues the exploits of young centurion "Corvus", commander of a cohort of auxiliaries fighting against the tribes gathering to expel the Roman occupiers of Britain. I cannot offhand recall any other books that focus on the activities of conquered foreign auxiliaries, and that device instantly provides a sense of the sweep and success of Roman arms. Corvus himself is a true Roman, hiding under an assumed name in Britain from the Emperor's mortal ire. He is surrounded by a cosmopolitan mix of Syrian archers, a German "Chosen Man", some Britons, and a handful of fellow Roman officers. The campaign against the barbarian leader, Calgus, is exceptionally well told, with convincing details of Roman military conduct and equipment effectively contrasted with that of the barbarians north of the wall. There is gore, intrigue, and derring do enough to satisfy the most jaded reader of historical fiction; as a lifetime reader of such, I think Mr. Riches is already in the top ranks of the genre. I think I would have liked him to resolve Corvus' political dilemma in book one, rather than drag it along through three volumes (I haven't read the third, yet), but that is a minor quibble that does not prevent me from enthusiastically recommending this series.

Excellent follow up to great debut Jan. 7 2011
By Nick Brett - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The follow up to the author's first novel and it's just as good. Comparison to the Scarrow novels is easy and slightly lazy, but I am going to do it anyway. I think these are better, with the perfect combination of banter, comradeship and professionalism in the Roman ranks along with the expected bad guys and treachery. But it is delivered well and this is entertaining, easy reading and the pages certainly whizzed by!

Here our lead character Marcus (still in hiding from the Emperor) is given a bunch of Syrian archers to turn into foot soldiers before their inexperience gets them (and their Roman colleagues) slaughtered. A lot of modern thrillers and action novels paint some from the Middle East as potential bad guys, here the author presents the Syrian as cultured, noble and skilled and that made a refreshing change I have to say. So we have Marcus, the Legions (along with their new archers) fighting the barbarians (mainly us - the British!) on and about Hadrian's Wall.

Great stuff and recommended.
