Review by neurodrew
I have read now, in about 10 days, just about all of Simon Scarrow's novels about Macro and Cato, Roman centurions. They are still in Syria, Macro the commander of an auxilliary cohort, Cato his adjudant, both still watching Longinus for ambitions of supplanting the emperor. They march to relieve a garrison, Cato falls in love, and they finally trap the Parthians and rebels of Palmyra. Another Kindle e-book
