Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of Centurion, The Gladiator and Praetorian, a new military adventure for battle-hardened centurions Macro and Cato, fighting for the Empire in Britannia. For nearly 10 years, the Roman Empire has fought ceaselessly to strengthen its hold over Britannia. But opposition from native tribes led by the ruthless warrior Caratacus threatens to destroy everything. Prefect Cato and Centurion Macro are summoned by Governor Ostorius to Londinium.

Tasked with leading a newly formed cavalry cohort into the heartland of Wales, they must destroy the growing resistance. But with Caratacus hatching increasingly ambitious plans and disorder threatening from within Macro and Cato's own ranks, this final test will push the soldiers to their limits. And if they do not emerge as victors, the Emperor Claudius's rule may be at stake, and the very foundations of the Roman Empire could be shattered irrevocably.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Blood Crows to be better than the print version?

    Having not read the book I cannot comment, I do intend to add it to my Kindle library for my holiday


    What did you like best about this story?

    The action packed story line you feel you could be over looking the scenes


    What does Jonathan Keeble bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    As I said not read the book but the way Jonathan Keeble changes the the pitch on his voice and accents add to the overall enjoyment of the book


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    No paticular part as I enjoyed the whole book


    Any additional comments?

    Keep up the good partnership between author and reader

    Story
    "Macro & Cato are in trouble again"
    What made the experience of listening to The Blood Crows the most enjoyable?

    It is the edge of the seat drama that Mr Scarrow does very well with these characters, seamlessly inserting them into historical events like Sharpe and Harper


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    It is typical of this type of drama, no author kills off their central characters, despite the peril that they are placed in


    What does Jonathan Keeble bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

    He is excellent at adding the requisite atmosphere to the novel, I certainly would recommend this production because of this. I look forward to future recordings of his.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It was but unfortunately work kept getting in the way


    Any additional comments?

    I'm a huge fan of this author and am looking to his next publication

    Story
    "Cato & Macro ride again!"

    Another very bloody Cato and Macro novel, set in a part of Britain where Roman rule is tenuous, and the "Roman" troops are themselves from fairly barbaric tribes.
    The two think they have jumped out of the frying pan that their service to the Imperial secretary and freedman, Narcissus, has tied them in for the last few years. Back to military service they find that the frying pan sat on a rather dangerous fire.

    Story
    "Cato and Macro Visit Getafix AGAIN"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I would have Simon Scarrow get a new plot. Just about the only fort that Cato and Macro have not defended is Fort Apache.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Simon Scarrow again?

    Not on this series.


    Did Jonathan Keeble do a good job differentiating each of the characters? How?

    He always does a good job in that respect, even if some the charcters do come out sounding like Dick Dastardly.


    Was The Blood Crows worth the listening time?

    No. If you have any of the earlier 'sieges' in the series, save yourself the trouble and expense by just replacing the cover art with the one from this book and listening to it again.


    Any additional comments?

    In general Jonathan Keeble is a good narrator but he tends to overly rely on shouting quickly to indicate action, and all bad guys are given BAD guys' voices. As soon as the characters speak for the first time you know if they are going to be a white hat good guy or a black hat bad guy.
