The thrilling new Macro and Cato Roman army drama from the Sunday Times bestselling author of the Eagles of the Empire series, Simon Scarrow.
EAGLES OF THE EMPIRE XIX
A.D. 57. HOSTILITY IN ROME - INSURGENCY IN SARDINIA
After the failure of their most recent campaign, battle-scarred army veterans Tribune Cato and Centurion Macro face hostility in Rome. Cato, isolated and unwelcome at the imperial court, is forced to escort Emperor Nero's volatile mistress to exile in Sardinia.
This is no reprieve from danger. Arriving on the restless, simmering island, Cato and his officers face a fractured command, a violent insurgency . . . and a deadly plague, threatening to tip the province into blood-stained chaos.
