Eagles at War by Ben Kane
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
A great story of treachery and revenge brought to life by Ben Kane as he explores the story of Arminius and his great act of revenge on the Roman occupiers of his homeland and the destruction of three Roman legions in the Teutoburg Forest. Drawing on his love of history and his ability to weave this into a wonderful narrative, Kane has crafted another masterpiece of historical fiction that grabs the attention of the reader (or listener in this particular case) and holds it from beginning to end.
The development of the major characters – historic and fictional – across the course of the narrative is masterfully done, and I look forward to encountering them again in the remaining volumes of the series. They are believable and relatable and again contributes to the reader’s engagement with the novel, with its story, and with the larger historical arc in which the novel is situated.
