Overview

As an author, Simon Scarrow is fast becoming a worldwide phenomenon. His Roman Legion series chronicling the adventures of centurions Macro and Cato has been met with near universal acclaim, drawing comparisons to the best of his contemporaries.



In The Gladiator, Macro and Cato are returning to Rome from a harrowing campaign against the Parthians when their transport ship is almost capsized by a freak tidal wave. They barely make it to the port of Matala in Crete where they are stunned to find a devastated town. An earthquake has struck the island, destroying its cities and killing thousands. In the chaotic aftermath, large bands of the island's slaves begin to revolt and local bandits, taking advantage of the slave rebellion, urge the Cretans to overthrow the Roman administration. With many of the island's troops either killed or wounded during the earthquake, the governor of the province calls on Macro and Cato for help. Can they move swiftly enough to counter the rebellion before it sweeps the Romans from the island? A master of his craft, Simon Scarrow combines stunning historical detail with riveting battles and rich characters to bring the Roman Empire to life as never before.

What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
Praise for Simon Scarrow:

"I really don't need this kind of competition." —Bernard Cornwell

"Scarrow manages to summon up all the glory and the gore that characterized life in the Roman legions. Outstanding military history from a relatively new master of the genre." —Booklist

"A combustible concoction of intrigue, treachery, and violence…Scarrow's combat is brutal and sanguinary; his imperial politics are almost as sharp." —Publishers Weekly

    I enjoyed this book; however, I found out, as happened for an earlier Scarrow book, that the follow-on book to this in the series was UNAVAILABLE on Nook. I previously went through the trouble of getting a paper version of the other missing book, but I'm tired of that and am done with that. If next book is unavailable on the Nook, then I'll just cease my purchasing of this series and consider this one as my final read in the series. Mr. Scarrow, your publisher made a mistake by not making this available on Nook. I think I saw "Kindle Edition" listed on Amazon, but there was no way to purchase it. As such, I assume no electronic edition was made available to customers.

    Great book

    Absolutely awesome, just as good as any other novel in the series. Wish they had the next one in the series for sale.
