I would give this one more than 5 stars if possible. Of the 15 Casca books, this one is my favorite. He saves a village from bandits that took it over to hole up for the winter. Once everyone is safe, he goes to a cave overlooking the village, and he goes to sleep - for 200 years or so. There were legends of how he will come back when the village needs him. Anyway, it turns out good then bad for him like the other books. Though these stories are usually the same type but in a different time, Cas ...more

So you just a soldier doing your job. You shove a spear tip into the side of this supposed messiah, except he is the real thing. He curses you to wander the earth till his return. Not bad right, immortality and all. Oh but he also curses you to be a soldier forever at war, never to know peace. This is the story of Casca the Roman legionnaire that stabbed Christ. Forever wandering the earth fighting one war after another. Great adventure series. Very recommended
