The Legions of the Mist based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Having read 'Eagle of the Ninth' by Rosemary Stultify in grade school I was pleased to find this new novel by Amanda Cockrell, which also dealt with the demise of the Ninth Hispania at the hands of the combined tribes in the early part of the 1st century AD in Northern Britain. This novel dealt in much more detail than did Sutcliff¿s, which takes place after the fact. I received in over a holiday weekend and once started is the type of book which cannot be put down. She flushes out the story to the extent that one can actually visualize the temper and morale of the legion deteriorating. While the book was written in the late 1970's I would strongly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good historical novel. For anyone who has younger children interested in Roman Britain I would recommend Rosemary Sutcliff's novels beginning with 'Eagle of the Ninth'
