Publisher's Summary

The Battle of the Lost Eagle saved Hadrian's Wall, but the new Roman governor of Britannia must stamp out the rebellion of the northern tribes or risk losing the province. Rampaging south with sword and flame under the command of their murderous chieftain Calgus, they have stretched his forces to the limit.

For Marcus - now simply Centurion Corvus of the 1st Tungrian cohort - the campaign has become doubly dangerous.

As reinforcements flood into Britannia, he is surrounded by new officers with no reason to protect him from the emperor's henchmen. Death could result from a careless word as easily as from an enemy spear - worse, one of them is close on his heels. While Marcus is training two centuries of Syrian archers to survive a barbarian charge and then take the fight back to their enemy, the new prefect of the 2nd Tungrians has discovered his secret. Only a miracle can save Marcus and the men who protect him from disgrace and death....

Anthony Riches once again brings meticulous research together with brilliant storytelling to capture the authentic feel of what life was like for the Roman Army in a brutal war with a remorseless enemy.

    "Great Book"

    Great story better than the first book. I will say his discription of battle is up there with Simmon Scarrow and Bernard Crowell.

    Story
    "One-dimensional decapitational porn"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Not really. Half of the story consists of detailed descriptions of how the invincible, near-superhero Two-Knives disembowels and decapitates his adversaries. Gets old real quick.

    The rest of the story isn't really all that exciting. No interesting plot. Little character development. Starkly unrealistic - the hero is in the thick of battle most of the time, never a scratch. And with no discernible weaknesses.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Anthony Riches again?

    No.


    Which character – as performed by Saul Reichlin – was your favourite?

    The narrator is pretty good - my favourite character would be the head of the Syrian archers.


    Was Arrows of Fury: Empire ll worth the listening time?

    Barely. Considered returning the book for something else several times over.

    "Cracking sequel"

    Sequels often fail to deliver on the expectations after excellent debut books. This sequel delivers in spades and sets the scene for book 3 really well
