The Eagle of the Ninth

The Ninth Legion marched into the mists of northern Britain – and were never seen again. Four thousand men disappeared and their eagle standard was lost. It’s a mystery that’s never been solved, until now… Marcus is determined to find out what happened to his father, the commander who led the legion. So he sets out into the unknown, on a quest so dangerous that nobody expects him to return. The Eagle of the Ninth is heralded as one of the most outstanding children’s books of the 20th century and has sold over a million copies worldwide. Now a major film, it is a tale that brings Roman Britain instantly to life, which will stay with you long after the last page has been turned.
