Publisher's Summary

They were Roman soldiers - and they were still alive because there were no better killers in the galaxy.

The Galactics need fighters who could win battles without the aid of technology. That's why, when Rome's legions suffered disaster at Carrhae, secretive alien traders were waiting to buy them on the Persian slave market.

Now, virtually immortal, the Romans fight strange enemies on stranger worlds; and though they win every battle, the spoils of victory never include freedom. If the legionaries are ever to return to Earth, it must be through the beam weapons and force screens of their ruthless alien owners. But no matter the odds, 2,000 years is a long time; the Romans are coming home. At the publisher's request, this title is sold without DRM (Digital Rights Management).

    "Meh"

    Started out with a great premise. Plot development was slightly lacking. Hard to get into the characters. Overall just okay.

    "Normally I live David Drake's writing"

    But not this time. It is an interesting idea. It was hard to follow and must be setting something up in future books. But until those books emerge, this as a stand-alone book was a bit boring.
