5.0 out of 5 stars Even better than the first!
This is the second novel in Jack Ludlow's The Republic trilogy.

3.0 out of 5 stars roman military

5.0 out of 5 stars Even better than the first!, May 11, 2009
This is the second novel in Jack Ludlow's The Republic trilogy. As with the first novel this is amazingly well written, the character development is far better then in his previous work as is the back drop to the many different environments. Ludlow is definitely one of the best writers of historical fiction out there, easily up there with Iggulden and Cornwell. If you're a fan of Rome or any historical fiction then read this it will impress you.

With Aulus dead in battle and one part of the prophecy fulfilled, Lucius now wonders if his time will come soon. Aulus two sons Quintus, now Lucius's political heir and Titus, commanding his own legion now must face a future were war and power struggles seem a sure thing. While after the death of his mother, Aquila goes in search of his friend who has been sold to wheat fields of Sicily. All of these stories come together to create and explosive finally.
