Kurzbeschreibung

It has been three years since the wars against Arminius and the Cherusci. Gaius Silius, Legate of the Twentieth Legion, is concerned that the barbarians-though shattered by the war-may be stirring once again. He also seeks to confirm the rumors regarding Arminius' death. What Silius does not realize is that there is a new threat to the Empire, but it does not come from beyond the frontier; it is coming from within, where a disenchanted nobleman looks to sow the seeds of rebellion in Gaul.

Legionary Artorius has greatly matured during his five years in the legions. He has become stronger in mind; his body growing even more powerful. Like the rest of the Legion, he is unaware of the shadow growing well within the Empire's borders, where a disaffected nobleman seeks to betray the Emperor Tiberius. A shadow looms; one that looks to envelope the province of Gaul as well as the Rhine legions. The year is A.D. 20.

HASH(0x8f88ff3c) von 5 Sternen Roman soldiers as humans... 21. Juli 2009
Von Alan L. Turner - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I was very happy with the second Soldier of Rome installment. The Author has created a historic but human look at Roman soldiers and their world. He tells the story of men, young and old that face many of the same challenges that our service men around the world face now. Protect your brother on either shoulder in the heat of battle. In the first book, (I'm told a second edition has corrected the gramatical errors that went largely unnoticed in the first edition) large scale battles and mayhem kept me turning pages. In the second book of the series we learn more about the day to day life and politics of the Legion. Still plenty of action, but character development fills out the individual soldiers of the Twentieth. I look forward to the next book, (coming out soon I hear!) not only see the saga continued but to appreciate the growth of an outstanding young Author. I highly recommend these books.

HASH(0x8f88ff90) von 5 Sternen As good as the first! 19. Juli 2009
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I was pleasantly surprised to see that James Mace had done a follow-up to his previous book, "Soldier of Rome: The Legionary." Like most people I had never even heard of the rebellion of Sacrovir and Florus, so it came as another surprise to see that this book too is based on actual events. Most historical novels from this era seem to focus on Julius Caesar, or events in Britain (i.e. Boudicca's rebellion). These topics have been done to death, so I'm glad to see this author pursuing other historical events that most of us probably have never heard of before. Just because a war doesn't have a hundred different books written about it doesn't make it any less brutal or tragic to those who had to take part in it. The events surrounding the sons of the Gallic nobility is especially devastating.

One thing about this book is that it does not have as many large-scale battles as the first book. In my opinion this is a good thing, because now we are able to see more character development rather than just bouncing from one blood-bath to the next. And while the characters do grow and mature, I had to be reminded periodically that Artorius is still pretty young in this book (twenty-two, I think). The "Legion Champion" tournament could have been given some more detail, but it was still a nice addition to the story.

Overall I am glad to see Mr. Mace has elected to continue the story of Artorius and his fellow legionaries. While "The Legionary" could very well have been a stand-alone book had he elected not to write a sequel, "The Sacrovir Revolt" makes it plain that there will be more books to follow as it does leave the reader hanging a little bit at the end. I look forward to the next one.

HASH(0x8f8923e4) von 5 Sternen Great Roman Historical Fiction 28. Januar 2011
Von Thomas D. Dunne - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I have read the first book and really enjoyed it. The characters sound like real soldiers. James Mace, the author, is a soldier himself so he really knows how to write for soldiers. I would highly recommend this book for lovers of Historical fiction in Roman times. I have read a lot of different authors and it was great to find James Mace on Amazon. Look forward to the next book.

HASH(0x8f8923cc) von 5 Sternen Another good book on Rome and its soldiers 6. Oktober 2010
Von J. Groen - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is another good book that provides some perspective on what it was like to be a soldier of Rome and what life in the Roman Empire was like. The bottom line is life was hard, cruel and brutal. If you weren't of the patrician class (essentially the huge landowners and senators of Rome), being a Roman soldier was probably the best life because it provided a way to become a patrician. The book follows the perspective of the best sources on this, e.g. Goldsworthy so it appears to have a level of accuracy.

Being a barbarian or slave, however, was not a good place to be. Working in the mines (a living death) or death by crucifixion are covered in this book to highlight the brutality. And, the Roman soldiers appear to get some pleasure in slaying their enemies. It was a brutal and cruel time, and this book provides that perspective.

Two issues with this book make it hard for me to give it the best evaluation. (1) The grammatical errors continue - for example, "through" in place of "throw", "our" in place of "are" and too many words in some instances that make it hard to follow what is written. (2) There are no maps. The author uses Roman names for towns and it is hard to follow what is going on. With his first book, I used the map in Goldsworthy's book, "In the Name of Rome". For this book, I looked up the locations afterwards and found them in a book by Burns - "Barbarians within the Gates of Rome". However, this should not be necessary.

In spite of these issues, I do recommend this book. The story is fast paced and provides a good perspective of Rome in the 1st Century AD - giving more details to good basic sources.

HASH(0x8f892798) von 5 Sternen Artorius' journey continues 10. Februar 2012
Von Allison - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Three years after defeating Germania, Artorius still loves being a legionary. Recently promoted to Decanus and Chief Weapons Instructor, Artorius has earned a fierce reputation both on and off the field. In Gaul, a former "victim" of the Twentieth Legion is plotting revenge. Sacrovir, a noble of Gaul, is forming an army of kidnapped noble Gauls, gladiators and criminals. With vast amounts of money, arms and men, he hopes to smash Rome's legions and regain Gaul's independence and obtain personal revenge. The second installment of the Soldier of Rome is a story of betrayal, treason and Rome's military might.
The Sacrovir Revolt opens with the death of Germanicus. Rome is stunned by the loss of her glorious son and the shock waves spread to her legions. I liked how Mace showed the feelings of both Imperial Rome and the Twentieth Legion. It was in this part especially that Artorius showed how much he has grown as a leader and a man. Soon, the Twentieth Legion must set aside their grief and enter combat. The combat in this book was slightly less graphic than its prequel, but is still accurate in its gore. Since revenge wasn't first and foremost on Artorius' mind, we see his humanity shining through more and more.
I enjoyed this book, it was just as great as the first one. Start with book one and enjoy these books! Mace did a fantastic job bringing Rome's elite fighting force to life!
