"This is a book that honours all those who have fought for a cause. It is a tale that shines like the Eagle at its heart.I suspect that no one else writes like MC Scott. I'm certain plenty wish they could." Giles Kristian "Brutal, touching, learned and above all captivating. This story of defeat and victory in Rome's war with Parthia had me hooked from the first page." Tony Riches "Gladiator meets Tinker Tailor in a baroque landscape" Robert Low "M.C.Scott stakes a bold claim to a place in the canon of cherished adventures. Rome: The Eagle of the Twelfth succeeds thrillingly. It's gripping, absorbing, and thoroughly entertaining, right to the last moment of desperate action and decision." Robert Wilton "Stirring stuff written by a lady who has proved her worth over and over again, rivalling any other offerings by popular male writers such as Bernard Cornwell and Simon Scarrow."
