In 1437, the Lancaster king Henry VI ascends the throne of England after years of semi-peaceful regency. Named "The Lamb," Henry is famed more for his gentle and pious nature than his father's famous battlefield exploits; already, his dependence on his closest men has stirred whispers of weakness at court. A secret truce negotiated with France to trade British territories for a royal bride - Margaret of Anjou - sparks revolts across English territory.

The author is a great writer. Leaps and bounds better than anything I could write. My only complaint is I got lost from time to time jumping from different characters. I’m sure it was reader/listener error more than writer error. For me that was my issue. I got lost. Other than that was good story.

Based on real historical events. A time for vengeance AD 9, German frontier: Close to the Rhine, a Roman centurion, Lucius Tullus, prepares to take his soldiers on patrol. On the opposite side of the river, German tribes are resentful of the harsh taxes about to be imposed upon them. Suspicious that there might be unrest, Tullus knows that his men's survival will be determined not just by their training and discipline, but by his leadership.

The eagle series are great books. I’d recommend them to anyone. I’ve read/listened to them all multiple times. I never get tired of them. I would like to thank Mr. Kane himself for getting this particular book added to audible. It was the first one of the series and only one I was unable to purchase. He corrected the issue. Thanks to him for his assistance and for such a good read.

Five long years have passed since the annihilation of three Roman legions in the wilds of Germania. Varus, the general who led the ill-fated army, is long dead, and the bones of his 15,000 legionaries moulder in the forests. But not all the Romans were slain in the ambush. Centurion Tullus, a seasoned veteran, survived, and now he lives for revenge upon the tribal chieftain Arminius, who masterminded the ambush. Tullus will stop at nothing to kill his bitterest enemy or to recover his legion's lost Eagle.

The book had a great story line. Can’t wait to start the next book in the series. Terrific author. All of Ben Kane’s books should be added to audible.
