bookshelves: all-time-favourites

This was my introduction to the works of Rosemary Sutcliff and I don't think I could have hoped for a better one. This book has everything that makes Sutcliff the brilliant writer that she is: interesting characters, wonderful descriptions, clever insights into the world of the Biritsh tribes and their interactions with the Romans. The main character, Alexios Flavius Aquila is well-constructed and I must admit it was fun to watch him evolve from the inexperienced soldier quick to make rash decissions due to panic to the man that he finally becomes after the time spent with the Frontier Wolves. Although the book does get progressively darker,there are also moments of light that, far from slowing the pace of the story actually make the reading more enjoyable.
