Publisher's Summary

This is audiobook number one in the Casca Series.

When they flew Casey into the hospital at Nha Trang, the medics were sure he would die. That he didn't was only the first surprise. The second, and bigger one, was that Casey had been fighting for 2,000 years, ever since that day on Golgotha when he thrust his lance into the side of the man on the cross. "Soldier, you are content with what you are. Then that you shall remain until we meet again." Thus does Casca's journey begin, a man who cannot die, does not age, and knows no skills but those of battle.

An interesting story for every Soldier to read.

Where does Casca rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

a solid 9 out of 10

Who was your favorite character and why?

Casca: The eternal mercenary's life dichotomy of valiant servant to empire while maintaining a "Howard Roark egotist" type personality parallel the personality of many Soldiers I know, especially the one I watch shave each morning.

Can't stop listening

This is as much fun as it is improbable. Based on the legend of Longinus, the author blends Ben Hur and the best of that ilk into a great adventure tale. I am truly addicted to the series.

Historical fiction at it's best !

I sometimes read pure history books but also enjoy a good scifi/fantasy book on occasion. This one gave me a dash of both and I enjoyed Sadler's writing style and development of both the character and the story.

it's from the 70s

it is a decent piece of fiction. must realize that it is from the '70s and at times you know it's a product of its generation but it is a good book and read well by the narrator
