Publisher's Summary

The date is AD 15. The German chieftain Arminius has been defeated, one of the lost Roman eagles recovered and thousands of German tribesmen slain. Yet these successes aren't nearly enough for senior centurion Lucius Tullus. Not until Arminius is dead, his old legion's eagle found and the enemy tribes completely vanquished will he rest.

But Arminius - devious, fearless - is burning for revenge of his own. Charismatic as ever, he raises another large tribal army, which will carry the Romans the length and breadth of the land. Soon Tullus finds himself in a cauldron of bloodshed, treachery and danger. His mission to retrieve his legion's eagle will be his most perilous yet....

More Ben Kane storytelling brilliance

In the current and developing understanding of tolerance, acceptance and limited conflict around the world, it a bit of a task to sympathise with the Roman protagonist, Tullus. His actions at the German village and the overall themes of the all conquering Roman military machine make it difficult to accept the actions of soldiers on the Roman side as heroic. War is ghastly, no matter what the time period. Kane writes about it in the grittiest, fast paced way we know and appreciate.
I enjoyed it, as a piece that transports me back to a time in history that holds me in fascination.
Thoroughly recommended for historical fiction fans and anyone with an interest in classical antiquity.

Great to the last word

Another great Ben Kane series! The emotions of the previous two novels come to a perfect climax. Would recommend to anyone regardless of being into Roman History or not as the series had great characters and vivid battle scenes.

Much Ado about an Eagle

While I enjoyed two other books in this series, this one meanders all over the place, and I was not invested in the hero's journey. David Rintoul is wonderful, but the writing fell flat.

Top notch novel about the Roman Legions

For those who are interested in Roman history or the Legions, this book is outstanding. It is the last book of a trilogy dealing with the aftermath of the treachery of Arminius, a Germanic tribal leader, who used his position as a Legion auxiliary to lead the Legions into an ambush, wiping out most of them and stealing the Eagle standards of three legions.

Although this book is the last one of the trilogy, it can be read as a stand alone novel. The descriptions of the interactions between the Legionaries will ring true for those of us who served in our respective countries' armed forces. The battles between the Germanic tribes under Arminius vs the Roman Legions under General Germanicus are well described, making the reader feel as if he/she were there.

I plan to read other books by Ben Kane, as this one, as well as Hunting the Eagles, are outstanding novels.

perfection in writing.

the author is one of the best and I have read many books written by him. Historical fact mingled with a little fiction is perfect.

Good but not his best work

I love Ben Kane's books, particularly his historical accuracy, realism and characterisation. However, although an enjoyable read, I found this third book a bit like a really long epilogue. Inevitable I guess due to the historical events, but I was as hooked as I normally am with his work. Still good though - just not his usual outstanding level in my view.

Classic Kane

Another great book from Ben, lots of accurate and interesting detail, a sterling storyline and lovable characters means you really are immersed in the Roman conquests of Germanica. A Hugh recommend to everyone and I cannot wait for the next two.

He did it again

What did you like most about Eagles in the Storm?

The story was gritty and the descriptions of the battles are amazingly detailed

What was one of the most memorable moments of Eagles in the Storm?

Tubero's Tent I was trying not to laugh out loud while lying in bed and waking the wife.

What does David Rintoul bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

The personalities of the characters were really brought to life but David.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I wish I had the time to listen to the whole book at once. I never wanted to turn it off.

Any additional comments?

Another great book by Ben and I hope there is another trilogy in the works for next year. No pressure ben but I'm hooked on your writing, from Hanno to Tullus the adventures have been memorable.
