Horses on the Storm by William Altimari

At the edge of the Judaean Desert, bandits are menacing the stability of the kingdom of Herod the Great. Alarmed at the unsteadiness of its aging ally and the threat to the security of its gateway to the East, Rome dispatches Tribune Ulpius Crus and a single cohort of the Twenty-fifth Legion to the Judaean wasteland. The tribune asks Centurion Quintus Flavius Rufio to lead the cohort with him to Judaea to establish a temporary Roman presence as a deterrent near the edge of the Salt Sea. Veteran of eastern campaigns, Rufio recognizes that the threat of bandits is an illusion and that Rome faces a far superior danger. He must quickly train his foot soldiers to take to the saddle, for now they challenge a brilliant commander leading a force of the finest horsemen on earth. On the outcome of this confrontation depend the existence of Judaea and the credibility and primacy of Rome.

Having read the first i was looking forward to this second installment in the series. it did not disappoint i would normally give it 4.5 stars but the first volume was so good i gave it the extra half point. The author knows how to write a gripping story of men in war. It is true to what men who have been n a war zone feel and think. I recommend this and very highly recommend the first volume in the series.

Centurion Rufio continues his life and service to the Roman Empire. In this book, he has found his true love and continues to pound the heck out of any and all enemies of the Roman Empire. I enjoyed the first book, took a chance on the continuing story, and am glad I did. Enjoyable, easy read. Actually learned some history of Roman conquests as well as some history of Romes enemies. Give it a chance.
