A gripping new novel featuring Roman army officers Macro and Cato on their most dangerous mission yet. In the first century AD the Roman Empire faces a new threat from its long-standing enemy Parthia. Parthia is vying with Rome for control of Palmyra an officially neutral kingdom. Palmyras royal household is on the brink of open revolt, and so a task force under the command of experienced soldiers Macro and Cato is dispatched to defend its king and guard its borders. When Parthia hears of the Roman armys presence, it starts amassing its troops for war. Macro's cohort must march against the enemy, deep into treacherous territory. If Palmyra is not to fall into the clutches of Parthia, they will have to defeat superior numbers in a desperate siege. The quest for a lasting peace has never been more challenging, nor more critical for the future of the empire.

Simon Scarrow is a former teacher who now devotes himself to writing full-time. He lives outside Norwich with his family.From Booklist:
Roman legionnaires Marco and Cato continue their martial adventures in the eighth installment of Scarrow’s splendid Eagle series. When another remote corner of the vast Roman empire is threatened, the Second Illyrian Cohort is sent to Palmyra, an oasis city in the middle of the Syrian desert, to quell the double threats of rebellion and invasion. As the cohort prepares to ward off the Parthians long enough to buy sufficient time for reinforcements to arrive on the scene, the two indomitable comrades must vie with both overt and insidious enemies. Military and political intrigue abounds as combat positions are staked out, and the historical and literary stage is authentically set for a series of sizzling battle scenes. --Margaret Flanagan
