    Malta, 1565: a vital outpost between the divided nations of Europe and the relentlessly expanding Ottoman Empire. Faced with ferocious attack by a vast Turkish fleet, the knights of the Order of St John fear annihilation. Amongst those called to assist is disgraced veteran Sir Thomas Barrett. Loyalty and instinct compel him to put the Order above all other concerns, yet his allegiance is divided.

    Where does Sword and Scimitar rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have enjoyed all Simon Scarrows books, including this one, but I think his roman "Under the Eagle" series is better.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The main character, Sir Thomas is by far the favorite as he is the main character and so most complete.


    Have you listened to any of Jonathan Keeble’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I have not listened to him before


    Who was the most memorable character of Sword and Scimitar and why?

    Sit Thomas

    In the first century AD, the Roman Empire faces a new threat from its long-standing enemy Parthia. Parthia is vying with Rome for control of Palmyra an officially neutral kingdom. Palmyra's royal household is on the brink of open revolt, and so a task force under the command of experienced soldiers Macro and Cato is dispatched to defend its king and guard its borders.

    Overall

    This is an excellent and thoroughly enjoyable book, very much in the Bernard Cornwell style, but with a style and flavor of its own. The only down side is that this book is the 7th in a series involving the main characters, and the prior books are not currently available on Audible. In addition this book is not currently available in print in the U.S. so there is a bit of a disconnect here. Hopefully they will soon add the other books in the series to Audible so I can enjoy them again without pestering the friends I lent them to return them.
