The gripping new adventure in Simon Scarrow's bestselling Eagles of the Empire series, not to be missed by readers of Conn Iggulden and Bernard Cornwell.
AD 54. As trouble brews on the eastern fringes of the Roman Empire, Prefect Cato and Centurion Macro face a deadly new challenge. A vengeful king's actions risk not only vast territories of Roman land, and Rome's reputation for invincibility, but also thousands of lives...
The wily Parthians have invaded Roman-ruled Armenia, ousting King Rhadamistus. Rhadamistus is ambitious and ruthless, but he is loyal to Rome. The local commander General Corbulo is tasked with restoring him to power, while also preparing for war with Parthia. Corbulo welcomes new arrivals Cato and Macro, experienced soldiers who know how to knock an unfit and undermanned unit of men into shape.
But can they control a king whose heart is set on vengeance? As an uprising against Rhadamistus's brutality takes shape, the bravery of the Romans will be tested to the limit...
