Return of the Eagles

(The second book in the Tribune Valerius and Centurion Marcellus series)
A novel by

Mark L. Richards's Legions of the Forest painstakingly crafted the world of AD 9 under the Roman Empire. He invites you back to ancient Europe in his sequel, Return of the Eagles.

In the Teutoburg Forest, three Roman legions are ambushed and killed under the orders of Arminius, the leader of a united confederation of German tribes. It is a political disaster for Rome and a personal one for Tribune Valerius Maximus and Centurion Marcellus Veronus, two of the few survivors of the attack. Both are given an opportunity to take their revenge on the barbarians.

It's an opportunity given by Germanicus Caesar, a rising star of the empire and nephew to Emperor Tiberius. As Germanicus begins raising an army, Valerius immerses himself in the German language and customs, and Marcellus trains soldiers in the ways of their enemies. While Valerius and Marcellus understand the ambush tactics of their adversaries, many of the army's senior leadership underestimate the barbarian tribes.

Valerius and Marcellus are not the same men they were in Legions of the Forest. Will their newfound experience, strength, and spirit be enough to lead Rome to victory? Or will they once again fall prey to the German barbarians?
