Macro and Cato now find themselves members of the elite Praetorian Guard, charged with defending the emperor himself against harm Yet, they rapidly find that the Guard is riddled with conspiracies aimed at bringing the ageing emperor Claudius down, and raising either of his two sons, one by birth, Britannicus, the other by adoption, Nero, to the purple Needless to say, the two centurions manage to find themselves in the thick of the action In the background is the Machiavellian figure of Narcissus, well known to both legionnaires, and also his rival for control of the emperor, Pallas.

    Praetorian Book 11 of the Macro Cato series, always a winner, i think the only time i have struggled with one of these books was gladiator and that was just the one character in the book.Legion saw a return to old school Macro and Cato and Simons best work, so would Praetorian keep up that momentum Yes and No No because the book is different, the style not what you normally expect from Macro and Cato,mature almost the characters , withintrigue and danger around every corner, Praetorian Book 11 of the Macro Cato series, always a...

    One to add to the endless list of Roman mystery novels.Relatively little time is spent on familiarising readers with the two main characters It s arguable that that was because this is over a dozen books into the series so the author didn t feel it necessary To me however it feels a little lazy as it could have easily been worked into being a book that stood out on its own instead of being just a link in the chain.As far as the storyline goes, there isn t much in the way of suspense, intrigu One to add to the endless list of Roman mystery novels.Relatively little time is spent on familiarising readers with the two main characters It s arguable that that was because this is over a dozen books into the series so the author didn t feel it necessary To me however it feels a little lazy as it could have easily been worked into being a book that stood out on its own instead of being just a link in the chain.As far as the storyline goes, there isn t much in the way of suspense, intrigue or menace The conspiracy is there but it feels very much like it s on the back burner and doesn t particularly get your brain ticking over.There s far too much pondering, wistful thinking into the distance and ruminating Far too little action or menace for my liking.The only thing that saves this book is that mercifully, in t...

    4 StarsDoes exactly what it says on the tin A good continuation in the series for all fans of Macro Cato out there.I must admit to prefer the duo when they are soldiering rather than acting as Imperial agents for Narcissus but with the yarn set in Rome it revolved around the Praetorian guard, the Imperial family, the plebs was a decent enough mystery adventure story with enough about it to be learning about the machinations of the Guard the politicking of the court of th 4 StarsDoes exactly what it says on the tin A good cont...

    You might think that by the time you reach the 11th book of a series that features the same two protagonists that one might get tired of those two protagonists Not so with Cato and Macro They continue to entertain, this time from Rome itself as they go undercover in the Praetorian Guard The story is full of the normal give and take between them as they sniff out a plot to assassinate Claudius Twists and turns in the plot keep the story moving Indeed, the author has done a magnificent job as You might think that by the time you reach the 11th book of a series that features the same two protagonists that one might get tired of those two protagonists Not so...

    This was a bit of a departure from Scarrow s usual writing since it revolved around Roman politics and the role of the Praetorian guard Overall I enjoyed reading this book Although, the series does seem to be dragging out a little.

    Another brilliant instalment and I thoroughly enjoyed every page screen really as I read it on my kindle and phone A different setting to the other books but there is still the recurring theme in that they end up to their necks in sewage at some point Can t wait for the next book.
