Review 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...

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...
