Hammer of Rome Read & Download Ü 108 Douglas Jackson ï 8 Read & Download AD 80 Gaius Valerius Verrens is back where he belongs at the head of a legion But this is no ordinary legion His command is the ‘unlucky’ Ninth tainted by four decades of ill fortune and poor leadership A unit regarded as expendable by Valerius’s superior Gnaeus Julius Agricola governor of BritanniaYet all that can be swept aside by a single moment of glory and the long herald. What can I say really other than it s such a shame that this 9th volume of the marvellous Gaius Valerius Verrens series is also sadly the last oneAs ever the book has been very well historically researched and explained by the author within the historical note which you can find at the end of the book where you can also find a well detailed glossaryAt the beginning of the book you ll notice two well drawn maps one of Agricola s Campaigns in Northern Britain and one of the Battle of Mons Graupius in AD 83What you can also find there is a wonderful Cast of Characters with real historical as well as great fictional figuresStorytelling is once again of a top notch uality and all the author s characters within this great story whether they are real or fictional come all splendidly to life within this compelling Roman tale and besides that the story pictures great battle scenes with real lifelike human clashesThe story is set as from AD 79 until AD 96 where the book will reach a deadly climax that will end this formidable series with an absolute great bangWhat will follow is for our main fictional character Gaius Valerius Verrens a lot Battles for Rome where loyalty betrayal heroics and backstabbing will be absolutely common enough until the ultimate Glory will finally beckon for our Hero of RomeHighly recommended and if I may hammer this message into you I would like to advise every reader to start with book 1 until this very last one book 9 for this book is in my opinion A Fabulous Conclusion Of Fantastic Series

Douglas Jackson ï 8 Read & Download

Hammer of Rome Read & Download Ü 108 Douglas Jackson ï 8 Read & Download Own brother Domitian a man with an insatiable ambition for power and a deadly hatred of ValeriusAll Valerius can do is forget the great prizes on offer concentrate on defeating the savage tribes who lie in the path of the Ninth and ignore Agricola’s intriguesBut watching his every move is the most formidable enemy he has ever faced mighty Calgacus war chief of the Northern allian. Very disappointing finish to the series It all seems rushed and not properly finished off Threads and an ending just dumped on the reader What an awful shame as the previous books in the series were definite page turners Perhaps the authors publishers were rushing him or his next project was getting in the way Nobody s perfect I suppose
