I’m a huge fan of Simon’s Scarrow Eagles of the Empire series and on 16 November Headline publishes the 16th – Day of the Caesars! I am delighted and more than a little thrilled to present here, exclusively, the cover reveal for the novel. And doesn’t it look good?!
The contents sound pretty fab as well:
AD 54. The Emperor Claudius is dead. Nero rules. His half-brother Britannicus has also laid claim to the throne. A bloody power struggle is underway.
All Prefect Cato and Centurion Macro want is a simple army life, fighting with their brave and loyal men. But Cato has caught the eye of rival factions determined to get him on their side. To survive, Cato must play a cunning game, and enlist the help of the one man in the Empire he can trust: Macro.
As the rebel force grows, legionaries and Praetorian Guards are moved like chess pieces by powerful and shadowy figures. A political game has created the ultimate military challenge. Can civil war be averted? The future of the empire is in Cato’s hands…
A review will be appearing here nearer the publication date but, in the meantime, here are past reviews of Simon Scarrow’s work.
