    Roman Mask Thomas M D Brooke

    I really enjoyed this book. Thè reality and believabillity of the charàctures and situations is very good. I am not a roman scholar but I have read and enjoyed a number of historically based books of this period. However, this book has left me feeling that I now have a much greater understanding of the beliefs and behaviour of the upper echeolns of "military" Roman Society. Having said that it really is a damm good read with lots of blood, guts and complex interpersonal relationships. You won't regret reading this.

    Some blood, lots of history

    In high school, I was fascinated by The Eagle of the Ninth by Rosemary Sutcliff. It is the story of a former Roman officer who stays on in 2nd century Britain to search for eagle icon of his fathers former legion. Roman Mask uses some of the same elements to describe a Roman hero's return to service in Germany. But this time the story is much deeper both psychologically and in terms of good and evil. Roman Mask reveals characters in very interesting physical and moral settings with plenty of conflict and intrigue. It seems a worthy start to a series.

    Couldn't stop reading it....

    I really enjoyed this book and I could hardly put it down. I'm an avid reader of Ancient Roam historical fiction authors, the likes of Scarrow or Sidebottom, and Brooke has really staked his claim int this genre. I hope he writes more historical fiction, I would definitely read his work again, and I do recommend this books to friends quite a bit.

    Needs better editing

    Too many spelling & grammatical errors to merit a 5, but still a good read. I recommend it highly...

    A gripping read

    This is a proper page turner, I'll definitely be looking out for the next one. As someone who knew a little of Arminius & the Teutoberg it was very informative
