Casca the Eternal Mercenary: Casca Series #1 | [Barry Sadler]

Casca the Eternal Mercenary: Casca Series #1

This is audiobook #1 in the Casca Series. When they flew Casey into the hospital at Nha Trang, the medics were sure he would die. That he didn't was only the first surprise. The second, and bigger one, was that Casey had been fighting for two thousand years, ever since that day on Golgotha when he thrust his lance into the side of the man on the cross.

Publisher's Summary

This is audiobook #1 in the Casca Series.

When they flew Casey into the hospital at Nha Trang, the medics were sure he would die. That he didn't was only the first surprise. The second, and bigger one, was that Casey had been fighting for two thousand years, ever since that day on Golgotha when he thrust his lance into the side of the man on the cross. "Soldier, you are content with what you are. Then that you shall remain until we meet again." Thus does Casca's journey begin, a man who cannot die, does not age, and knows no skills but those of battle.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Casca: The eternal mercenary's life dichotomy of valiant servant to empire while maintaining a "Howard Roark egotist" type personality parallel the personality of many Soldiers I know, especially the one I watch shave each morning.

    "Historical fiction at it's best !"

    I sometimes read pure history books but also enjoy a good scifi/fantasy book on occasion. This one gave me a dash of both and I enjoyed Sadler's writing style and development of both the character and the story.

    "Can't stop listening"

    This is as much fun as it is improbable. Based on the legend of Longinus, the author blends Ben Hur and the best of that ilk into a great adventure tale. I am truly addicted to the series.

    "Worthy book"

    Great book! Looking forward to the rest of the series. I like how the author made parts very gritty where it was best & yet showed Casca capable of a gentle side too.

    I'm going through the series in chronological order of writing.

    "A terrific, fun series"

    I've read all of Sadlers books in this series, most of them over 20 yrs ago. I've always enjoyed history and fantasy. Sadler does a brilliant job melding the two in this series. Casca is inserted in real points of history and occassionally interacts with some real historical figures. It makes these books a lot of fun, although they can be a bit too graphic for younger listeners. If you want something that passes the time without having to invest a lot of brainpower other than listening, then these stories will suit your tastes.
