Rome: The Eagle Of The Twelfth Summary

Rome: The Eagle Of The Twelfth: Rome 3 by Manda Scott

They are known as the Legion of the Damned... Throughout the Roman Army, the brutal XIIth Legion is notorious for its ill fortune. For one young man, Demalion of Macedon, joining it will be a baptism of fire. And yet, amid all of the violence and savagery of his life as a legionary, he will come to love the Twelfth and the bloody-minded, dark-hearted soldiers he calls his brothers. But during the punishing Judaean campaign, the Hebrew army inflict a catastrophic defeat upon the legion - not only decimating their ranks, but taking away their soul - the eagle. There is just one final chance to save the legion's honour - to steal it back. To do that, Demalion and his legionnaries must go undercover into Jerusalem, into the very heart of their enemy, where discovery will mean the worst of deaths, if they are to recover their pride...

Rome: The Eagle Of The Twelfth Reviews

"This is a book that honours all those who have fought for a cause. It is a tale that shines like the Eagle at its heart.I suspect that no one else writes like MC Scott. I'm certain plenty wish they could." * Giles Kristian *
"Brutal, touching, learned and above all captivating. This story of defeat and victory in Rome's war with Parthia had me hooked from the first page." * Tony Riches *
"Gladiator meets Tinker Tailor in a baroque landscape" * Robert Lowe *
"M.C.Scott stakes a bold claim to a place in the canon of cherished adventures. Rome: The Eagle of the Twelfth succeeds thrillingly. It's gripping, absorbing, and thoroughly entertaining, right to the last moment of desperate action and decision." * Robert Wilton *
"Stirring stuff written by a lady who has proved her worth over and over again, rivalling any other offerings by popular male writers such as Bernard Cornwell and Simon Scarrow." * Shropshire Star *
