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.

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.

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.

Great book with an excellent narration

The noise floor is the only minus to this audio book but other than that I am now a fan of the series and definitely of Gene Engene. His skills as a narrator where excellent and I am happy to have given this audio book a listen.

Hard Boiled, historical fiction.

Completely off par with the ancillary spin off stories of encounters and lifes altered by Jesus Christ. This ain't Ben Hur! What makes this book a guilty pleasure, is its assault on the current filters of Feminism, and Political Correctness. The word craft of this tale, punches one in the gut like gulp of two fingers of Old Crow whisky. Unapologetic Pulp fiction....Mac Bolen meets Conan the Barbarian.

Its OK if you like that sort of thing

It entertained me, but how it could turn into a series of 40+books is beyond me.

Worthy book

Great book! Looking forward to the rest of the series. I like how the author made parts very gritty where it was best & yet showed Casca capable of a gentle side too.

I'm going through the series in chronological order of writing.
