it was amazing

This very adventurous and exciting book is the 2nd volume of the "Eagles of Rome" trilogy.
The historical details concerning this great story has been once again extremely well researched and documented in the author's note, and the book also contains a wonderfully explained glossary.
Storytelling is as ever of a top-notch quality, because once again the author has kept me captivated and spellbound from start to finish with this wonderful and very impressive read.
All the characters within this gripping tale come really vividly to life, whether they are real historical people or fictional ones, and the book has real lifelike interactions between the characters involved.
This tale is set during the years AD 14-15, so five years after the opener, and it starts first with an exciting and informative prologue in the year AD 12, and the tale itself starts just before the unexpected death of the Emperor Augustus.
At the German frontier the Roman legions, within their midst our main character of the book Centurion Lucius Cominius Tullus and which are led by the famous General Germanicus, will do anything in trying to retrieve the lost Eagle standards and at the same time track down and kill Arminius, the traitorous German chieftain, and so restoring their pride and glory.
What follows is a very gripping and thrilling read with great outlined battle scenes, and a lot of suspense about whether Lucius Tullus and his fellow Roman soldiers will succeed in their quest in "Hunting the Eagles", and thus hopefully retrieve them once and for all.
Highly recommended, for this is a tremendous tale about Roman history in Germania, and that's why I want to call this book "Another Epic Eagles"!
