    3,75 5 Qu puedo decir de esta segunda entrega de la saga Pues que es m s de lo mismo que la anterior Eso quiere decir que sus puntos fuertes son los mismos, b sicamente, acci n a raudales, ritmo narrativo trepidante, una buena ambientaci n militar y unos personajes protagonistas repletos de carisma y con los que es muy sencillo empatizar.Con respecto a sus defectos, se cumple la misma premisa y se repiten con respecto al anterior Falta de profundidad en el trasfondo, un antagonista bastante soso y unas tramas secundarias mejorables.Resumiendo, si te ...

    4 5 mini review I thought this was much better than it s predecessor, Under the Eagle The Eagle s Conquest focuses on the invasion of Britain by the Romans, covering three battles up to the capture of Camulodunum modern day Colchester, Wikipedia tells me , and the greater scope of the book compared to the first one makes it a lot exciting We ve got battles, we ve got a kinda bad love story, we ve got politics and assassinations, and Scarrow deftly brings people from history to life though not terribly historically accurately, I don t think Vespasian and Vitellius and General Plautius and Emperor Claudius all get properly fleshed out into characters of their own, alongside Optio Cato and Centurion Macro some of them you want to give a hug, and others you d like to beat over the head with a stick.Like most light historical novels, this is the kind of book best read on public transport or ...

    The Legions brought a chainsaw to a sword fight Someone asked me how could I like Simon Scarrow s novel so much when I know that it s not historical accurate that I should be put off by the swearing in his novels That s exactly the point why I m such a fan of Scarrow s Eagles series He doesn t romanticize war or politics The author doesn t pretend to be historically accurate unlike some authors when there really not The reality is that history can be as dry as the papyrus it was written on The Eagle s Conquest is the second in the series and a bit of a beast Cato and Marco along with their Second Legion buddies find themselves chopping through several engagements, from the Tamis Thames to Camulodunum Colchester Tension is kept high due to the volume of conflicts and the pace of the novel Throw in conspiracies and a bit of love tension and mesh it altogether Then you ve got a fairly believable living and breathing story What the Roman s need is a set piece battle They are not trained or equipped to fight a guerrilla war General Plautius decides to push towards Caratacus tribal capital of Camulodunum and push he does The Second Legion suffer heavy causalities on the way, through a series of direct engagements and filtering of poor orders from the General s st...

    7 10This was a similar outing to the first novel in the series with the relationship growing stronger between Cato and Macro, the treachery growing stronger within the political ranks and a good number of well described battle sequences.There wasn t much wrong with this novel other than the bits seemed to plod between the battles It was slow to get going but when things kicked off it got going The dialogue was also the same as the first which could ...

    What strikes me most about this book, and to a certain extent the previous book in the series too, is just how different it is to the author s non Roman period fiction.For someone who is routinely trotted out as one of the best authors of Roman fiction, it surprises me just how bland and un engaging a novel Scarrow puts out.For a little context, the first of Scarrow s book that I read was Sword and Scimitar set around the sixteenth century siege of Malta It was ripe with betrayal, battle, blood, believable battle sequences and a rich depth to the character s, often flawed, personalities and histories.Compare such an invigorating tome with a pair of books where there is precious little depth to any of the characters beyond occasional almost throwaway attempts at adding meat to the character s bones, and you ll hopefully see where I m disappointed.The overwhelming feel of the book is of a very militarist outlook at the Roman conquest of Britain told supposedly from the viewpoint of three characters Macro and Cato, whom the series is primarily based around, and Vespasian The battle scenes have far a feel of rigidity and formula than the chaotic bloodsoaked frenzy that you feel from other authors depictions.More attention seems to have been paid to noting and reciting various s...
