Overview

**Revised 2012 Edition**
Rome's Vengeance

In the year 9 A.D., three Roman Legions under Quintilius Varus were betrayed by the Germanic war chief, Arminius, and then destroyed in the forest known as Teutoburger Wald. Six years later, Rome is finally ready to unleash Her vengeance on the barbarians. The Emperor Tiberius has sent Germanicus Caesar, his adopted son, into Germania with an army of 40,000 legionaries. They come not on a mission of conquest, but one of annihilation. With them is a young Legionary named Artorius. For him, the war is a personal vendetta-a chance to avenge his brother, who was killed in Teutoburger Wald.

In Germania, Arminius knows the Romans are coming. He realizes that the only way to fight the Romans is through deceit, cunning, and plenty of well-placed brute force. In truth, he is leery of Germanicus, knowing that he was trained to be a master of war by the Emperor himself.

The entire Roman Empire held its breath as Germanicus and Arminius faced each other in what would become the most brutal and savage campaign the world had seen in a generation; a campaign that could only end in a holocaust of fire and blood.

Editorial Reviews

Pick of the Literate - William Bentrim
A snapshot of the life of the Roman Legionnaire is the most succinct description of this book. Artorius begins the book as a young boy lamenting over the death of his brother in a treacherous attack by German tribes. He ends the book as a seasoned campaigner in the Roman Legions. Artorius’s anger and need for revenge seemed realistic. It was easy to see his motivations. James Mace has obvious experience in the military and has done his research for this novel.
Musings of a Book Junkie - Allison Harper
I have read a lot of books about Rome, but none about her military conquests. Rome's military might is (in)famous, and was a force to be reckoned with. Rome was the military gold standard. The characters in this book were good. Althought Artouris' main goal was revenge, he wasn't one dimensional. His mental and physical development matched his character development. The material in this book is VERY dark and gritty at some places. The brutality is almost overwhelming, but it is accurate.

    Strong showing for first book

    The Soldier of Rome is a solid, well-written Historical fiction following a Roman Soldier and his story during the Germanicus Ceasar attempt to take back Germania.

    Mace does a good job of intertwining historical details with the story of the fictional legionary soldier Artorius. It kept me interested and entertained from start to finnish. Some parts are a little rough, but was expected for the first attempt at writing a novel. The only part of the book I thought was a little over the top was a sex scene toward the end of the book.

    The book was entertaining and informational and I would highly recommend it.

    Nook version text mangled

    Parts of words lie severed all over the page. It isn't unreadable, but it is annoying. A shame that they didn't fully test this edition.

    Great Book

    I read this book in three days which is fast for me! I couldn't put it down, every spare minute I had I found myself reading it. I highly recommend reading this first book written by James Mace. I can't wait to read the second book in the series of four. Five stars all the way!
