He was cursed by Jesus on Golgotha, condemned to immortality and the life of a soldier, until the Second Coming. Galley slave and gladiator, warrior and vagabond, Casca travels the world living by his wits and skills as a fighting man. Waiting, knowing he cannot die, he fears discovery.
His travels take him north to the land of the Vikings and then west to the Toltecs. In Mexico atop a storm-shrouded pyramid, priests prepare to offer Casca in sacrifice. The knife plunges, but the man who cannot die rises from the altar. Reclaiming his still-beating heart, he proclaims himself the God of Death.

Great story Engene tells the story so well its like you are right there.Its told in such a great way after you are finnished you want to read the next one!
yes,,, much better. with gene engene as the narrator, he has the canny ability to make the story come to life, without a boring moment.
none so far.. other audio books.. talk lot of gibberish, and after a while you need to let your ears have a rest, but not with Barry saddler together with gene engene. there a tough act to beat.
panzer solder.. while i can relate to panzer solder,, while serving in the armed forces, as a armor crew man. saddler showed how war can make you embrace the concept of war with hardness and contemptuous of death, showing no pity towards there enemies, with savagery of the eastern front the atrocities both on and off the battlefield.
no.. jest leave it as it is..
i will gladly pay the dollar amount.. instead of using my credits,, if it helps Barry create more casca adventurous .
