Publisher's Summary

Thrilling, authentic, and action packed, this novel introduces soldier hero Marcus Valerius: a centurion stationed on Hadrian's Wall in the second century during a revolt against the Roman Empire.
Marcus Valerius Aquila has scarcely landed in Britannia when he has to run for his life - condemned to dishonorable death by power-crazed emperor Commodus. The plan is to take a new name, serve in an obscure regiment on Hadrian's Wall, and lie low until he can hope for justice. Then a rebel army sweeps down from the wastes north of the wall, and Marcus has to prove he's hard enough to lead a century in the front line of a brutal, violent war.

If he had Pebbles narrate this I think we would have a real winning series. Plenty of fast passed action with a good storyline. Worth a listen.

Great story but ...

Here's the thing. I love books about the Roman empire and this is a pretty good one. I just wish I had read it in book form. The narrator sounds like an older man and the hero is only 19 years old. The voice of the main character was just wrong to my ear and it ruined the story for me. If, like me the narrator is important to you I suggest listening to the sample clip before you spend your credit.
