Camulod Chronicles #03: The Eagles' Broodby Jack Whyte
Synopses & Reviews
The Eagles Brood continues the saga of the Colony known as Camulod, and the tale of the descendants of those brave Romans who forged a new way of life for the Celt and Roman peoples when the Roman legions departed Britain.
Most know the new leader of the Colony as Merlyn; all call him Commander. Cauis Merlyn Britannicus is responsible for their safety, and all look to him for guidance, leadership, justice, and salvation. It is a harsh life but a good community, and Merlyn is dedicated to spreading the influence of Roman culture beyond the Colonys borders.
Uther Pendragon, the man who will father the legendary Arthur, is the cousin Merlyn has known and loved since they were birthed, four hours apart on the same day, the year the legions left Britain. He is the tireless warrior--the red dragon to Merlyns great silver bear--and between the two of them, the Colony knows few enemies.
As different as they can be, they are inseparable: two faces of the same coin. In a world torn apart by warfare and upheaval, each is the others certainty and guarantee of the survival of the Colony . . . until a vicious crime, one that strikes at the roots of Merlyns life, drives a wedge between them. A wedge that threatens the fate of a nation . . . .
This is volume 3 of the Camulod Chronicles. Caius Merlyn Britannicus is the leader of the Colony, responsible for its safety, justice and salvation. Uther Pendragon is a tireless warrior. Each man is the other's guarantee of survival to the Colony, until a vicious crime drives a wedge between them.
The saga of Camulod--founded by the descendants of those brave Romans who forged a new way of life for Celt and Roman together after the departure of the Legions--and of Merlyn and his cousin, Uther Pendragon, who will father a child named Arthur.
