The Eagle of the Ninth

The Eagle of the Ninth

Title: The Eagle of the Ninth

Stars: 4

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

About the Author:

Rosemary Sutcliff was a British novelist, best known as a writer of highly acclaimed historical fiction. Although primarily a children's author, the quality and depth of her writing also appeals to adults, she herself once commenting that she wrote "for children of all ages from nine to ninety."
