Killing the Hydra (Eagles and Dragons Book 2) Book Review
Amazon describes the book:
Killing the Hydra – Eagles and Dragons Book II
At the peak of Rome’s might a dragon is born among eagles, an heir to a line both blessed and cursed by the Gods for ages.
In Killing the Hydra, Lucius Metellus Anguis returns to North Africa, determined to investigate the death of his centurion and root out the treason that has infiltrated the ranks of his cohort. With his wife, Adara, safe in Athens, Lucius finds himself alone on a dangerous road back to the legionary base at Lambaesis. Praetorian spies and other unknown enemies are hunting him, and it is only with help from the Empress, a Punic prostitute, and an ancient group of warriors that Lucius is able to survive.
But the Sibyl’s prophecy haunts Lucius’s dreams, and he clings desperately to the hope that he is making the right decisions for his men, for himself, and for his family.
As his world is ravaged by pain on all fronts, Lucius Metellus Anguis must decide whether or not to make his move against the enemies that have plagued his family for far too long, including the most powerful man in the Roman Empire.
How far will the Dragon go to protect his family and avenge the spirits of the dead?
Only the Gods know…
My Own Thoughts On This Book:
Now this is a better read and full of action. There is tragedy, sorrow, pain, hard decisions set amongst some good characters and a fast moving plot.
Lucius is now promoted to tribune and is soon embroiled into the devious politics of Rome.
Friends, enemies and prophecies, what is the maturing Lucius to do?
A much better story line and a good read.
