Publisher's Summary

It has been three years since the wars against Arminius and the Cherusci. Gaius Silius, legate of the 20th Legion, is concerned that the barbarians - though shattered by the war - may be stirring once again. He also seeks to confirm the rumors regarding Arminius' death. What Silius does not realize is that there is a new threat to the empire, but it does not come from beyond the frontier; it is coming from within, where a disenchanted nobleman looks to sow the seeds of rebellion in Gaul.

Legionary Artorius has greatly matured during his five years in the legions. He has become stronger in mind, his body growing even more powerful. Like the rest of the legion, he is unaware of the shadow growing well within the empire's borders, where a disaffected nobleman seeks to betray Emperor Tiberius. A shadow looms, one that looks to envelope the province of Gaul as well as the Rhine legions. The year is AD 20.

    "Finally!"

    I've been waiting for this for a long time. I'm a huge fan of the Artorian Chronicles and I've read them all more than once. I really like Nigel Patterson. He does an amazing job or giving every character their own unique voice and mannerisms.

    Here's to hoping the rest of the series will make it to Audible!

    "Before archaeology, there were living soldiers"

    Most of what I know about Roman legionnaires comes from an interest in archaeology, so I had no understanding or real knowledge of the era represented here. I received this book from a friend with more widespread interests than mine ( I know some USMC, US Rev War, and Norse). That being said, I enjoyed the inter-regimental politics, insight into how things were done and perceived by the men in the field. More knowledgeable reviewers attest to the historicity of events and are pleased with this rendering. My personal view is that I now wish to read more of this series, from the first onward.
    Patterson's performance is excellent, of course. Clear precise speech and audio interpretation of personages and emotions bring the tale to life and enhance reader understanding.
    One man can make a difference, regardless of standing or century.

    Any additional comments?

    The Legionary is a book about Roman defeat and retaliation in Teutoburge – a Roman legion as a whole and a legionary as an individual – the key element for the supremacy of the ancient Rome in the then known world. All about Roman the whole time
