While still as formulaic as the rest of the books this one is one of the better ones in my opinion, it keeps you hooked (like the others, but more so) and contains more than its fair share of action.
This is book six in the series. I have been able to read only episodes one and three as Audible does not carry the other volumes. The year is 45 AD; Centurions Marco and Cato are in Rome awaiting the results of an official investigation of the death of a fellow officer in Britain. Cato may face a death sentence. Imperial Secretary Narcissus sends Marco and Cato on a special mission to rescue an Imperial agent captured by Illyrian pirates and return the Delphic Scrolls the agent was carrying.

"The Eagles Prophecy" Simon Scarrow
The sixths book of the Eagle series about the exploits of Macro and Cato two centurions of the Roman army. 45 AD GAVE THIS 5stars a good read for historical history. A little surprise at the end
Cato and Macro are done with Britain and are back in Rome awaiting a posting elsewhere, however the whole death penalty thing rears it's ugly head and they are sent on a secret mission by Narcissus to redeem themselves. This mission just happens to be lead by Vitellius, the bad guy from the first couple of books that never seems to get his comeuppance. This time the guys are against Pirates, which was a nice change from the British tribes. The plot was okay with this one but it had a stupid side ...more

Usual enjoyable mayhem. Vitellius reappears and bears even more of a resemblance to a pantomime Sheriff of Nottingham, though. Not sure why Scarrow singled him out to be the bad guy - guess that will come clear when we get to the Year of the Four Emperors........if our heroes have survived and are not crippled by arthritis by then!

Another page turner from the Eagle Series, for the first time we are off Brition, instead we get to see a bit of Rome and then a Sea Adventure for our two protagonists who try their hands at beings marines and secret government agents. The change is refreshing at the same time we still have the great strategic battles, realistic combat & political intrigue. Surprisingly we are still seeing character growth for both Cato & Marco. This book had the most number of unexpected twist n turns, the endi ...more

I confess I love these epic historical novels - adventure, challenge and history. This one did not disappoint. Simon Scarrow has obviously researched his subject and was able to bring the roman society (from the lowly to the elite) to life - drawing the reader to use their imagination with smells, sights and sounds.
I appreciated that the author was not afraid to allow the characters to develop humour and to make mistakes - so that the warriers presented their human side and were easy to empathi

Finely we have left shores and dreary weather of Britain - this much I am pleased of as the story line was beginning to drag out.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this novel and at no point felt that it was several pages longer than the other books in the series.

A good heady mixture of Roman staunchism mixed with swash bucklling, treasure seeking piratism helped to bring this story to life. The detail involved in describing the sea battles could have been better but was sufficient enough to help th

I have read a number of the books in this series. Unfortunately, the farther that I go on, the more formulaic the books become. Vitellius could have easily been killed off, and new villains invented. Some plot elements are stretched over-far to make life hard for the two heroes. It seems that by this point, the author has bcome a bit lazy and smug with the success of the series, and decided that not much more ingenuity is needed. Which, is a pity, as the setting and the heroes are more interesti ...more

Another awesome swashbuckler by Scarrow. I have been immensely enjoying this series and recommend it to anyone looking for a good Roman adventure. The only reason I struggle to give these books 5-stars is that sometimes the themes arent super compelling or have much depth. They are meant to be page-turning action books which I absolutely love. I really liked that this one focused on Roman naval warfare which gave some new insight and character to the novel.

Another great book in the series. Was good to see a different take on the usual land based stories. As much as I enjoyed the naval part I'm looking forward to the next instalment being back on land.

Another cracking read from Simon - great characters, engaging story and more action than a roman legionary could deal with in a life-time!

A good read

Another well written story from Simon Scarrow. If you like historical fiction this one is a must, full of atmosphere, it almost made me feel seasick.

A great story which is just slightly different than the normal 'Eagle' stories.

Written in the best tradition of quest lore, this adventure takes Cato and Macro out of their natural element into the world of pirates. Good read

Another good one, but I'm rather tired of Tribune Vittelius ... Several enhancing surprises!

Nice read about Cato and Macro experience all kind of adventures.

Just for fun I hung on to this buddy movie with snappy dialogue in the face of horrific death. Sword fighting, young male porn without sex. roman legion details were informative.

I have loved this series. I am sad and mad that many of this series are not in Kindle. I read the next Kindle one after this and it was quite clear that a lot had happened in the previous NON-Kindle book. If another gap happens in the lives of Cato and Macro, I'll have to quit the series. Why isn't the whole series in Kindle?

Simon Scarrow's sixth installment of his "Eagle" story follows Centurions Macro and Cato during a transitional phase in the threaded storyline of this Sand and Sandals series. In the last book, "The Eagle's Prey", our heroes were banished from the war front in Britannia, where the majority of the previous five books took place. "Prophecy" centers on Rome's battle against piracy in and around the northeast Italian coast while providing a launch pad for our characters to explore the further reache ...more

Macro and Cato are back at it, having survived the Celts in Briton they’ve returned to Rome for reassignment. Rather than being assigned to a legion however, Narcissus (knowing what was to happen to Cato) calls the boys in to work on a special task for Rome (to “forgive” their transgressions against Rome); with Vitellius (you can read about Vitellius in Under the Eagle). It seems there’s some scrolls that predict the future of Rome and her emperors that’s in the hands of some pirates and Narciss ...more
