[Ebook] ↠ Hunting the Eagles Author Ben Kane – Ralphslaurensoutlet.co.uk

Hunting the Eagles Really great sequel to Eagles at War Centurion Tullus clearly dealing with some PTSD from the slaughter in the teutoburg forest was a good touch as well as the usual realistic battles and dialogue I shall be reading the next one for sure. The second book of the Eagles of Rome series is as good as the first.Less outright fighting, butinteresting in some respects, as it deals with the Rhine mutinies.Very much looking forward to reading the third book of the trilogy.

Continuation of the story of Centurion Tullus and the other survivors of the Teutoberg Disaster He and some of the legionaries in his original legion the 18th which had nearly been wiped out are now in the 5th Legion Germanicus, general, a member of the imperial family, comes to take charge of several legions on the Germania frontier He and they are bent on revenge for the Teutoberg, several years earlier A mutiny of some soldiers is put down and ringleaders executed There is much chara Continuation of the story of Centurion Tullus and the other survivors of the Teutoberg Disaster He and some of the legionaries in his original legion the 18th which had nearly been wiped out are now in the 5th Legion Germanicus, general, a member of the imperial family, comes to take charge of several legions on the Germania frontier He and they are bent on revenge for the Teutoberg, several years earlier A mutiny of some soldiers is put down and ringleaders executed There is much character development and camp life Battles against Arminius and allies occur and are brutal Arminius wife is abducted by the Romans, who destroy several villages along with their inhabitants Arminius is still at large After victory for now the men proceed towards their winter camp One eagle is found, but not that of Tullus old legion.I thought the scene very moving where Tullus brings Germanicus to the site of the previous battle and its description, as well as soldiers dividing up the possessions of a fallen comrade, as remembrance of him and his friendship That same poignant incident, adapted from a World War II memoir set in Burma, has also been used in one of M.C Scott s novels as occurring among Greek and Roman soldiers Ms Scott and here, Mr Kane had felt soldiers of all eras have the same feelings and emotions Realistic battle scenes seem to been Kane s strength The writing style ismature than his earliest books of course, he was dipping his toes into the water , as it were Highly recommended Hunting the Eagles was just as good if not a little better as the first book, Eagles at War I literally loved every single page of it, never wanted to put my Kindle down or ever get bored Ben Kane is fast turning into one of my favorite historical fiction authors The first book was one of my top favorites of 2015, so I m really thrilled to say that Hunting the Eagles wasn t a disappointment at all If anything, I think I enjoyed it evenbecause I was already familiar with the characte Hunting the Eagles was just as good if not a little better as the first book, Eagles at War I literally loved every single page of it, never wanted to put my Kindle down or ever get bored Ben Kane is fast turning into one of my favorite historical fiction authors The first book was one of my top favorites of 2015, so I m really thrilled to say that Hunting the Eagles wasn t a disappointment at all If anything, I think I enjoyed it evenbecause I was already familiar with the characters.I don t want to say too much about the story itself because I don t want to spoil it for other people but it takes place over five years later Tullus and Arminius are still important characters in the story Tullus is out for revenge on Arminius and his tribesmen Arminius wants to crush the Romans once again.Like in the first book it was full of action, battles and bloodshed so there s never a boring moment, not even for a second The different points of view were all great to read, in my opinion and the writing was obviously excellent Whatcan I say I loved this book
