Kurzbeschreibung

The year is 31 A.D. It is five years into the Judean governorship of Pontius Pilate and the province ever stands on the edge of a knife. The Jewish religious leaders, the Sanhedrin, use their patronage with the Emperor to vent the slightest grievance, and the people themselves burn with a hatred for Rome. Pilate’s only military forces are Samaritan auxiliaries, little more than an undisciplined mob that abuse and torment the populace.

The Emperor Tiberius finally relents and assigns to Judea a single cohort of legionaries to restore order. Pilate tasks his old friend, Centurion Artorius, to command the First Italic Cohort. Though sad to leave the Rhine and the Twentieth Legion after sixteen years, Artorius relishes the chance for adventure in the East. With him will be some old friends, Magnus, Praxus, Valens, and Justus Longinus. In the scorching desert they will encounter bandits, a mad king, his evil seductress stepdaughter, numerous messianic prophets, and unreliable allies, all underscored by the beginnings of a zealot rebellion.

Born in Edmonds, Washington, author James Mace is currently a resident of Meridian, Idaho. He enlisted in the United States Air Force out of high school; three years later transferring over to the U.S. Army. After a career as a Soldier that included deploying to Iraq, in 2011 he left his full-time position with the Army National Guard to devote himself to writing. His well received series, "Soldier of Rome - The Artorian Chronicles," is a perennial best-seller in ancient history on Amazon. In his latest endeavors, he also branched into writing about the Napoleonic Wars.

5.0 von 5 Sternen The days of Jesus Christ through the eyes of the Romans 10. Juni 2013
Von Roger J. Buffington - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This novel is a look at the days of Jesus Christ through the eyes of the Romans, particularly Pontius Pilate. First of all, this is a pretty Christian novel that will not offend devout Christians. Jesus is seen as a larger-than-life figure who, very much as is told in the Gospels, was wrongly accused of sedition and crucified for it, against the better judgment of Pontius Pilate. In this novel Pilate is portrayed as a decent man doing his best in a rebellious and difficult province (Judea), harried and unfairly criticized by his superiors in Rome including the Emperor. The outstanding feature of this novel is simply the notion of what it might have been like to actually be in Judea at the time of Christ. This alone, plus the good writing and solid storyline, make this novel well worth the reader's time. RJB.

James Mace has outdone himself again. You find yourself cheering on the characters he has created. You learn to feel the love, joy and sadness with the characters as the books move on. I find myself wanting for the next book already!! James can't write them fast enough!!! This book is a page turner which I read through the night to finish! James Mace will always have a fan in me!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Enjoyed it 9. Juli 2013
Von John B Norfolk - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Makes one look at things a little differently. Like the thoughts that each one had on the teaching of Jesus and how people of importance thought of him at the time. Gives a very different look at history, makes people thing and that is always a good thing. A different view is a good view at times

5.0 von 5 Sternen AWESOME job Mr. Mace, simply awesome!!! 27. Mai 2014
Von N.M. Cox - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I am a long time reader of this genre of books, the Roman legions. I have been a Christian for even longer. The way the author dealt with this touchy and delicate (the "trial" and crucifixion of Christ) subject is the best I have read yet!! It really gives insight to how it honestly might have happened. The author has given humanity to all subjects involved. This book is a continuation of the story of Artorius and as has been the case throughout the series, it is well written and draws the reader into the story. Let's face it though, in this book we knew we were going to get to the situation of the crucifixion. The build up, the actual event and the aftermath were all masterfully done. I obviously have purchased the last book in the series as well as book one of his new trilogy. I am so looking forward to reading both but will approach the last book of this series with sadness. Thank you Mr. Mace for many, many hours of enjoyment, sadness, intensity, and satisfaction. I thank you as a long time reader (about 50 years) and for this one book I also thank you as a Christian!
