My biggest knock on these Arena books is that they are so darn short! I polished off this book in just about one sitting. Of course, I can only complain so much because I enjoyed in thoroughly.

The fourth volume in the Arena series finds Pavo and Macro fighting for their lives once again thanks to the relentless scheming of the Greek freedmen. What makes this volume different is that Pavo gets involved in a plot involving the Liberators - a plot that forces him to make a hard choice.

Each episode of this has been a fantastic tour into the history of the best part of the eagles duo, Macro. He is the driving force, the charisma and attitude that has brought me back to every eagles book, and learning about his past is brilliant for every fan of the Eagles series.
Pavo as the gladiator is also a brilliant new edition, he is Cato as i wish he had turned out, rather than some of the more recent character traits (the mooning over his girlfriend). This episode has a bit more g
The fourth (of five) entries in Simon Scarrow's 'Arena' e-book exclusive series, this one starts with both Macro and Pavo being forced to participate in a beast fight in the Roman Arena

Unlike the previous entries (most of which followed the same format, ending with a gladiatorial bout), the majority of this one is set in and around the circus itself, and also ends with Pavo moving closer to his ultimate goal of gaining revenge for the death of his father.

With the fourth installment of this series we're back to one star. As bad as those which preceded this one are, none are as boring or quite as silly. Pavo and Macro, despite the ill fortune which falls their way, are the two luckiest characters I've read about. They're constantly saved by sheer happenstance. Yay.
