Publisher's Summary

The Roman grip on Britain is weakening. Emperor Nero has turned his face away from this far-flung outpost. The Druids are on the rise, spreading seeds of rebellion among the British tribes. Roman cruelty and exploitation has angered their British subjects. The warrior queen Boudicca will lead the tribes to war.
Standing against the rising tide of Boudicca's rebellion is Roman Tribune, Gaius Valerius Verrens, Commander of the veteran legions at Colonia. Valerius leads the veterans in a last stand against the unstoppable horde of Boudicca's rebel army. Step by step, the bloodied survivors are forced back into the Temple of Claudius. It is here that Valerius wins lifelong fame and the accolade Hero of Rome.

Good story, well told and well read

Where does Hero of Rome rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Top 3; as a sci-if and fantasy junkie, this was a nice change. Nice to have the historical perspective.

What did you like best about this story?

The historical nature of the story, at times very gory and at times intellectual. The author does a great job of building his characters, and the tension.

What about Cornelius Garrett’s performance did you like?

Good tone and pace, no goofy voices, matched the seriousness of the material.

Any additional comments?

This is a great story that makes you appreciate both sides of the conflict, while still letting you cheer for a hero. It would make a great mini series!

Well done book for Roman English history fans

Good read.....interesting take on the Roman conquest of the native tribes. I wish there was a little longer description of final battle between the Legions and Boudica.
