M.C. Scott – Rome: The Eagle of the Twelfth

 Manda Scott, author of the bestselling Boudica series and now the acclaimed sequence of Rome novels, will be talking about and signing copies of her new book, Rome: The Eagle of the Twelfth, at Booka on Thursday 7th June (7.00pm)

Rome: The Eagle of the Twelfth is a breathtakingly compelling story of a legion at war. Throughout the Roman Army, the Twelfth Legion is notorious for its ill fortune. It faces the harshest of postings, the toughest of campaigns, the most vicious of opponents. For one young man, Demalion of Macedon, joining it will be a baptism of fire. And yet, amid all of the violence and savagery of his life as a legionary, he realises he has discovered a vocation – as a soldier and a leader of men.

The Eagle of the Twelfth is the third of the Rome novels and is published on 24th May 2012. Manda last appeared at Booka in 2010, we look forward to welcoming her back.
