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.

Twenty years ago feared general Cobalt Zosia led her five villainous captains and mercenary army into battle, wrestling monsters and toppling an empire. When there were no more titles to win and no more worlds to conquer, she retired and gave up her legend to history.

If you could sum up A Crown for Cold Silver in three words, what would they be?

Clever writing. Fun, entertaining story. Witty dialogue. Loved every minute of it! For a little perspective on my favorite reads - because I really appreciate it when other reviewers do this:
JRR Tolkien is the best. Anthony Ryan's Raven Shadow series is Fantastic! Daniel Abraham's The Dagger and the Coin is excellent. I also like GRR Martins first three books until he lost it. Brandon Sanderson is also very good. Peter Clines is great, and I really enjoyed the Girl with all the Gifts by M.R. Carey.
