The Eagle of the Ninth
Title: The Eagle of the Ninth
Age Level: 10+
Violence: Um, not a ton, just kind of details a fight that happened between Romans and tribesmen
What I Thought:
I admit, I was NOT excited to start reading The Eagle of the Ninth when my mom handed to me to read for school.
But I read it. I couldn't pay attention to it, my mind can wander, until Cottia was introduced, then I was clinging to the story, all of it. Even when Cottia wasn't there.
Over all it was a great story! I loved Marcus, Esca, Cottia, Cub, and Marcus's uncle--fantastic characters!
Just like my review with The Book of the King, Keep. On. Reading. It gets better
