    Trouble is brewing in Syria, on the eastern frontier of the Roman Empire. With the troops in a deplorable state, centurions Macro and Cato are despatched to restore the competence of the cohort. But another challenge faces them as Bannus, a local tribesman, is brewing up trouble and preaching violent opposition to Rome. As the local revolt grows in scale, Macro and Cato must stamp out corruption in the cohort and restore it to fighting fitness to quash Bannus - before the eastern provinces are lost to the Empire forever.

    Excellent read all around. Its difficult to find an author with the love of historical accuracy and detail, while being imaginative enough to spin a good yarn.

    I write this based on listening to the Abridged version, since there is not unabridged version. But you definitely blow past it pretty quick. The voice acting was acceptable, but not amazing. Previous audio books had superior voice acting with better attention to accents and more imagination.

    Altogether, a decent read. But not something I'll listen to again unless blowing through the whole series.
