Macro and Cato return again, 16 books in and the boys have grown, matured and changed. The new relationship with Cato as superior is well embedded and Macro is starting to take on the mantle of the soldier coming to end of his career, jaded (well as much as Macro ever could be), and sick of...

I always enjoy this series, and this time Cato and Macro are up to their necks in it in the streets of Rome. 3.5 stars. The Hb has 367 pages.

This is good, Cato and Marco back in Rome as political life unravels as Nero starts his reign.
It is a good fast moving plot and feels very much like a screenplay as actions move forward quickly and everything is quite straight forward bar figuring out who are the bad guys and who are good.

Excellent story telling as always
Simon Scarriw, to my mind, is the ultimate author for historical fiction during the early period of Imperial Rome. Cato, devistated by the death of his wife, Julia, and Macro find themselves involved in the intrigue surrounding the death of Claudius and the succes...

Another great addition to the series! I liked this one better than the last one and it ratcheted up the tension quite a lot for one of our main characters! I really didn't know which plot twist would lead where even though I had some good guesses, I was surprised and enjoyed finding out that I wa...

This is a continuing series based on Roman history and has been extremely well written from the outset 16 books ago. I continue to enjoy the adventures of Cato and Macro and look forward to the next book.
